Polymer 3D Printing

HP Multi Jet Fusion utilizes powdered thermoplastic material to create accurate, complex, and finely detailed parts. Our high-quality thermoplastics deliver optimal mechanical properties and chemical resistance, producing parts with balanced property profiles and strong structures.

When manufactured layer-by-layer in a powder bed, this unique process uses a combination of binding agents and energy, allowing for several levels of biocompatibility.
