MultiJet 3D Printers
MultiJet Printing (MJP) is used to build parts, patterns and moulds with fine feature details. This makes them an ideal printer for applications such as rapid prototyping, chainmail, assemblies with moving parts and mould making.
MJP is an inkjet printing process that uses piezo print head technology to deposit either photo-curable plastic resin or casting wax materials layer by layer. The printers use a separate, dissolvable support material to enable the production of complex designs with minimal post-processing.
A further benefit is that removing support material is a virtually hands-free operation that allows even the most delicate features and complex internal cavities to be cleaned without damage.
MJP printers offer high resolution prints with layer thicknesses as low as 16 microns. Parts have a smooth finish and can achieve accuracies rivalling Stereolithography (SLA) without the need for the complex support removal and post-processing of SLA printing.
Recent advances in the durability of plastics enables parts to be made that are suitable for some end-use applications, as well as accurate prototyping.
