The Multi Jet Fusion technology explained - innovation combined with polypropylene
Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) is an innovative 3D printing technology based on the fusion of powder layers. In this process, a thermally conductive fluid is applied to a thin layer of plastic powder. This is done with the help of a heating source (infrared light) located on the print head, which heats the powder bed immediately after the ink is applied. The process is similar to inkjet printing, but instead of ink, a specific fluid is used. This fluid bonds the powder at the selected points to form the desired part of the 3D object. These steps are repeated layer by layer until the entire 3D object is completed. It is a precision process that is customized specifically for each individual product. MJF thus enables the production of high-precision and complex components with high detail and strength.
The combination of MJF with polypropylene (PP) opens up additional advantages. PP is a versatile material with outstanding mechanical properties and chemical resistance, ideal for applications requiring strength and durability. The combination of MJF and PP offers a powerful solution for additive manufacturing.
This innovative combination revolutionizes product development and enables the production of high-quality components with high precision and efficiency. MJF with PP enables shortened lead times and efficient manufacturing, while allowing complex design concepts to be implemented. The technology opens up new possibilities for prototyping, customized manufacturing and the production of functional components in various industries.
