What is HP Metal Jet?

HP Metal Jet is a 3D printing process that utilizes powdered metal materials to create accurate, complex, and finely detailed parts. They are manufactured in the powder bed, layer-by-layer, and solidified using HP’s unique combination of binding agents and energy.

This revolutionary technology allows us to craft parts with exceptional detail, consistent quality, and unparalleled speed. At Endeavor 3D, we’ll accomplish what you thought was impossible with the help of our metal 3D printing technology and team of experts.

The Endeavor 3D Metal Jet Process

Our Elnik 3045 batch furnace and a CM continuous furnace are engineered specifically to process metal binder jet parts. With the full suite of tools required to analyze sintered parts, we can develop and modify sintering cycles in-house.

A typical sintering cycle is between 22 and 28 hours long depending on the specific alloy. With our sintering furnaces, we can sinter in both a hydrogen and nitrogen atmosphere, allowing us to develop additional materials in the future depending on the business case. The optimal part size for our sintering furnaces is roughly the size of a baseball. However, we have the capability to sinter larger parts with modifications to the cycle length.

From prototyping to short run production, we're here to help transform your vision into tangible results.

Metal Jet Advantages

  • Allows for products that support EV’s and ancillary devices for electrification.
  • Accelerates product development, improves speed-to-market, and enables “on demand” applications.
  • High responsiveness that reduces parts in inventory.
  • Personalization and batch production of unique, complex designs.
  • Higher efficiency with part performance and longevity with air, liquid, and gas flow applications.
  • Eco-friendly due to lower fuel consumption and longer battery ranges.

Materials & Applications

Stainless Steel 17-4PH

A martensite precipitation hardening stainless steel used in applications that require a combination of high strength and mechanical properties with good corrosion and wear resistance. Properties can be tailored through heat treatment, making this versatile material valuable for a wide range of applications.
