What is Multi-Jet Fusion 3D Printing?

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) by HP is a new powder-based 3D printing process that chemically melts powder together. The machine uses an array of inkjet heads to selectively apply binding agents across a bed of polymer powder. Each pass of the print head fuses layers together in 80 micron layers to create durable, complex parts with a consistent surface finish & excellent mechanical properties.

The speed of this manufacturing method makes it one of the fastest 3D printing manufacturing methods on the marketing making Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing services are ideal for manufacturing end use parts at high volumes. The unique powder fusion technology allows parts can be nested & stacked together inside of the build to rapidly produce parts at much higher volumes than any other 3D printing technology.  Parts manufactured by Multi Jet Fusion are also capable of meeting USP VI Biocompatibility for end-use-applications in medical products.

Design Guidelines for Multi-Jet Fusion

HP Multi-Jet Fusion is an new additive manufacturing technology that bridges the gap between 3D printing and injection molding. This design guidelines covers specific design parameters, which will need to be followed to prevent build failures from occurring. We have set the minimum allowed tolerances specified by the engineers from the manufacturer which will need to be followed or your parts may not meet the specific tolerances required or may cause the entire build to fail.

Accuracy

Layers are fused together using a binding agent that selectively deposits binding agents onto a bed of polymer to create a solid structure. The machine builds up each cross section in 80 micron layers, which makes layers nearly invisible in the final part. Most geometries are produced within +/- 0.3mm and are highly repeatable from build to build.

Surface Finish

Parts produced by Multi Jet Fusion have a grainy finish similar to very fine sandpaper. Parts can be easily deep color dyed or painted to achieve different colors & finishes.

Pricing

Optimizing your designs for Multi-Jet Fusion will help keep manufacturing costs down by ensuring the most efficient batch productions. The cost of a part is primarily based upon the X, Y, & Z extents of your part, therefore small, dense parts are priced the most competitively in this technology. There is no extra change for complexity, meaning even the most difficult geometries can be manufactured inexpensively and with ease. 

Build Size

Forge Labs Multi- Jet Fusion 3D Printing machines have a building volume of: 380 x 284 x 380 mm (15 x 11.2 x 15 inches), a standard layer thickness of 80 um. Parts are manufactured additively using a sintering agents that are selectively deposited onto a bed of polymer to fuse layers together. This process allows for exceptionally fast manufacturing, and excellent resolution of small details. 

  • Minimum Wall Thickness

    1 mm

  • Engraved Details

    Thickness & depth of at least 0.8 mm

  • Embossed Details

    Thickness & depth of at least 0.7 mm

  • Clearance

    0.5 mm

  • Minimum Hole Size

    1.5 mm or 3 mm for internal chanels

  • Layer Height

    80 μm

  • Maximum Build Size

    380 x 284 x 380 mm. (15 x 11.2 x 15 inches)

  • Tolerances

    ±0.3%, with a lower limit of ±0.3 mm.

  • Surface Finish

    Parts are sandblasted and have a uniform grey or black matte texture

  • Warping & Deformities

    Long, flat planes are prone to warping & deformation
