HIGHLY DETAILED
Multi Jet Fusion produces parts with
extremely fine details. The unique
build process of Multi Jet Fusion
achieves a fine feature resolution of
0.02”, creating parts that can exhibit
small intricacies in complex designs
such as embossed text, small holes
or living hinges.
BATCH MANUFACTURING
Multi Jet Fusion is ideal for building in batches to
achieve low unit pricing, while adding increased
functional design complexity. Industries, like
transportation, can take advantage by printing
parts in shipsets. MJF build time is determined
by the height of the batch being built, rather
than the quantity of parts. This allows significant
time and cost savings when quantities of parts
are built at once.

MULTI JET FUSION PROCESS
The Multi Jet Fusion process begins with a design in the form of 3D CAD data. The 3D CAD object is sliced into 2D cross-sections using
automated software. A build unit with loaded material is rolled into the 3D printer. Then, a layer of material is applied to the build platform
area. In the opposite direction, in one continuous pass, the machine prints fusing and detailing agents across the full working area. This pass
combines the printing with the fusing energy. After the print is finished, the build unit is rolled to the processing station for cooling and
powder excavation. Leftover powder is recycled with new material for use in future builds.
