MULTI JET FUSION (=MJF) describes an additive manufacturing procedure which uses two Inkjet printheads to apply special binder-agents to the powder. Both HP Thermal Inkjet Agents use ultra-fine droplets: the black fluid with a high thermal conductivity binds the powder for the actual building process. The colorless liquid is used as a thermal inhibitor at the edges of the part to be build. The bound particle’s fusing is activated with infrared energy leading to a very high surface quality and sharp edges due to the use of the thermal inhibitor component. .
It‘s one of the most productive and at the same time cheapest procedures – mainly used for prototypes and small batches.
Another outstanding advantage compared to conventional manufacturing processes comes with the very short production periods for highly complex, three dimensional geometries – even with undercuts.
The components become colored, and the light colors have a grayish cast.
functional, durable and suitable for series production prototypes, single pieces and small batches
complex parts with overhangs
small serial parts
