Beating the Odds With HP Jet Fusion 3D Printers

Only 13 percent of family businesses make it to the third generation – a fourth is nearly unheard of. For Denny Reiland and his daughter, keeping the family tooling company alive isn’t a question, it’s a lifestyle. One that for Denny involves long days (and oftentimes nights) at the shop, anticipating clients’ needs and constantly adapting the business to meet those needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I buy an HP machine through Hawk Ridge Systems?

Hawk Ridge Systems has dedicated engineers who operate, install, and service these systems every day. We know the in-depth tips and tricks to truly get the most out of these machines and we help our customers do the same.

What post-processing is required for HP Multi-Jet Fusion?

Unpacking the build and bead blasting parts are the two required post-processing steps with MJF.

How safe are HP 3D printing systems?

Both the equipment and materials being printed are safe to handle with little to no PPE. At Hawk Ridge, we operate our systems without any PPE unless we are unpacking a build that is hot, then we use heat-resistant gloves.

How easy are HP systems to use?

HP systems are very forgiving, especially when it comes to print orientation. There are very few design rules to follow, making it versatile for parts of all shapes and sizes from tiny details <.5mm all the way to large pieces that fill most of the build volume.

How does HP Multi-Jet Fusion compare to FDM or SLA printing technology?

HP Multi-Jet Fusion typically provides much higher quality looking and feeling parts compared to FDM and typically has much better strength and durability compared to SLA. There is no competition on the print speed of FDM or SLA compared to HP.

I am looking to replace injection molded parts with 3D printed parts. Is HP a good fit?

HP part quality is such that it is very difficult for most people to tell that it is printed. The surface texture on a raw part is typically rougher than injection molding, but this can be solved through vapor smoothing parts or by adding a coating such as paint or clear coat. The part cost and print speed of the systems can keep up with injection molding for low to mid-volume quantities in many cases.

What facility requirements do I need to install an HP system?

Power, space, and compressed air are the main considerations for an HP system. Ventilation from the machine is optional depending on your working environment. Reach out to the Hawk Ridge team for a Site Preparation Guide to learn more.
