Reinvent How You Produce Prototypes and Functional Parts

The HP Jet Fusion series features industrial 3D printing systems that specialize in high-volume, high-quality production printing. The powder-based system puts down layers of still-molten material so that layers fuse together more completely than other 3D printing technologies. This allows the HP printers to achieve fine details and repeatable, accurate, and strong parts, time and time again.

The 4200 series was the flagship 3D printing product for HP. It incorporates speed, accuracy, and cost advantages not normally seen in additive manufacturing. With multiple materials available, this is a versatile and valuable tool to have in your manufacturing toolbelt.

The 5200 series 3D printer brings incredible speed and productivity, rivaling the production and cost of injection molded parts used in short-run production. Whether you are looking for one-off prototypes, tooling, or production runs, the 5200’s speed is unmatched in the additive manufacturing world.

HP 3D Printing: What You Need To Know
  • Material: PA12W

    This robust thermoplastic provides the best balance between performance and reusability, for white functional parts across a variety of applications like prosthetics, medical equipment, lighting décor, fashion and wearables, and household appliances.

  • Material: PA12

    Strong functional nylon material able to achieve highly detailed prints for end-use applications. PA12 is one of the least expensive materials from HP and is the most widely used material on an HP.

  • Material: PA11

    Strong functional nylon material that has a high-quality surface finish with more flexibility compared to PA12.

  • Material: PA12GB

    Glass-filled nylon material ideal for applications which require high stiffness and dimensional stability.

  • Material: TPU

    Rubber-like, elastomeric material ideal for flexible applications.

  • Material: Polypropylene (PP)
    Low-cost material excellent for its chemical resistance, weldability, and low moisture absorption. This material is ideal for fluid movement applications.
  • Material: TPA

    Elastomeric material slightly stiffer than TPU.

  • Nesting & Build Prep Software

    HP systems come with a free nesting and build prep software called Smart Stream Build Manager. This software works great for customers running lower quantities of parts. For high quantity production environments, it is recommended to use a 3rd party software such as Materialise Magics.

  • Fast Cooling 10.5 Hours

    HP machines provide the option for natural or fast cooling. Natural cooling is recommended for parts that are long and thin, while fast cooling can be used in many cases to reduce the overall time to part in hand.

  • Natural Cooling Units (Optional Add-On)

    Natural cooling units free up the post-processing stations and build units when printing multiple jobs in a row. Jobs can cool on the side while the user de-powders parts from a previous job in the post processing station. These are a less expensive alternative to purchasing additional build units.

  • Process Control Software (Optional Add-On)

    Process Control Software allows you to calibrate your machine through the use of 3D scanning a bucket of targeted parts printed on your machine. This calibration can significantly improve part accuracy and repeatability for those looking to run high volumes of parts. This feature is only available on the 5200 series of printers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What materials are offered for the HP Multi Jet 3D printers?
  • PA 12 thermoplastic for strong, low-cost parts
  • PA 11 thermoplastic for ductile, impact-resistant parts
  • PA 12 GB for stiff, dimensionally stable parts
  • TPU and TPA for flexible, functional parts
  • PP for chemical resistant, weldable parts
Do HP printers require ventilation or facility exhaust?

Ventilation and facility exhaust is optional, though it is recommended to improve the comfort level of the print room as well as reduce the overall heat dissipation in the room.

What is the benefit of the post-processing station?

The post-processing station has multiple functions including:

  • Loading and automatically mixing recycled powders with fresh material
  • Unloading printed builds for initial de-powdering and cleaning of parts
  • Cooling the build using fast cooling for expedited part retrieval
What software is needed to build a part on a HP 3D printer?

HP machines come with free nesting software called Smart Stream Build Manager. This software is sufficient to send jobs to the machine for print. It is very common for customers to purchase a 3rd party nesting software, such as Materialise Magics, for a much higher degree of nesting capability. Those focused on production typically opt for this 3rd party solution. Those focused on smaller volumes of prototypes typically stick with the free HP software.

Is there any support structure to remove with HP printers?

Since HP Jet Fusion is a powder-based printing system, no support structure is generated; the powder is self-supporting. However, it is necessary to remove excess powder from the part exterior and interior through post-processing. This is commonly done by bead blasting parts.

What is the dimensional accuracy of the HP Multi Jet 3D printers?

Dimensional accuracy can vary depending on the material and printer. Here are some dimensional accuracy specification examples:

  • A part 80mm in length printed out of PA 12 on the HP 5200: XY±.28mm ; Z±0.47mm.
  • With Process Control Software, the 5200’s accuracy can improve to: XY±0.18 ; Z±0.30 for a part < 80mm.
  • A part 80mm in length printed out of PA 12 on the HP 4200: XY±.31mm ; Z±1.12mm.
What is the difference between the 5200 series printer models: 5200, 5210, and 5210PRO?

There are no performance differences between the 5200 series of printers. The differences between each model are cheaper consumables and materials with the 5210PRO providing the lowest part cost. The 5210PRO, for instance, can accept much larger material containers which significantly reduces the price per kg of material.
