White Paper: Manufacturing & Prototyping

HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology


Three-dimensional printing of useful objects and machine parts is becoming a reality. 3D printing offers the ability to produce — both rapidly and at low cost — short runs or one-of-a-kind parts.

For more than 30 years, HP inkjet technologies have disrupted and led a broad range of printing markets. HP Multi Jet Fusion technology leverages HP’s deep assets in imaging and printing to take the digital transformation of printing off the page and into a three-dimensional world of highly functional, high-value manufactured items.

HP Multi Jet Fusion technology was conceived to overcome the tradeoffs and constraints limiting current 3D technologies. HP Multi Jet Fusion has the unique ability to produce parts with controllable physical and functional properties at each point in a part. Offering speed, quality, strength, and novel functionalities, HP Multi Jet Fusion will accelerate the adoption of 3D manufacturing across a wide range of industries and applications.

A unique feature of HP Multi Jet Fusion technology is its ability to modify material properties voxel-by-voxel to produce controlled variability in mechanical and physical characteristics within and across a part. This capability enables a host of new possibilities in the design and function of parts that cannot be produced by traditional manufacturing methods or other 3D printing solutions.

HP Multi Jet Fusion technology enables high build quality up to 10 times faster and at the lowest cost relative to competitive 3D printing solutions in the marketplace today. These breakthroughs in quality and speed will accelerate the widespread adoption of 3D printing to create a digital transformation of manufacturing as widespread and profound as the way HP thermal inkjet technology has changed the landscape of conventional printing markets and applications.

This technical white paper provides details on HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and HP’s strategies and vision to introduce a new era of digital manufacturing.
