Reinvent How You Produce Prototypes and Functional Parts

The HP Jet Fusion 5000 series, comprising the 5000, 5200, 5420, and 5600 models, represents industrial 3D printing systems designed for high-volume, high-quality production printing. Using a powder-based system, these printers lay down layers of still-molten material, ensuring complete fusion for fine details and repeatable, accurate, and strong parts consistently.

Among them, the 5200 series stands out for its remarkable speed and productivity, rivaling injection molding for short-run production, making it 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.
  • 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 Development Package
    The package includes software compatible with the 5600 printer, allowing for more control of the print process and parameters. Create your own print profiles and recipes. Then, dial in a print recipe for specific production runs of parts to optimize efficiency, part quality and part cost.
  • Processing Station
    The Processing Station is used to unpack builds, load builds with powder and automatically recover and mix recycled powder. This closed- loop system reduces the amount of loose powder and mess associated with powdered fusion Printing.
  • Automation Accessory
    This system will automatically load a second build unit into the printer, allowing users to complete two consecutive prints without the need for human interaction once the first job has been started. Users experience much higher efficiency since this system can start the second job during off-hours like nighttime or weekends.
  • Automatic Unpacking Station
    The Automatic Unpacking Station automatically unpacks builds and recovers recyclable powder for future use. This system saves approximately 30 minutes of human labor per job. It’s a great tool for those running high numbers of builds per week.
  • Powder Handling Automation
    This system enables higher productivity, better material quality and consistency and higher traceability between lots. The 3D Powder Handling Automation system is best for those running at least four printers and can handle up to 20 MJF 3D printers, eliminating the need for dedicated post- processing stations

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of the Jet Fusion Processing Station?
The processing station aids in unpacking of builds, reclaiming and recycling material, and loading build units with powder. This system creates a smooth and clean workflow, which is essential for many organizations. Without the processing station, the working environment will have more loose powder, and users will need to wear additional PPE when working with the powdered material.
How can I run multiple materials with an MJF 3D Printer?
To run multiple materials with an MJF 3D printer, purchase a dedicated processing station and set of two build units per material. The 5200 and 5600 printers can run multiple materials with a simple cleaning as long as there is a dedicated processing station and set of build units for each material.
What is the most common printed material on an MJF 3D printer to get started with?
PA12 is undoubtedly the most common printed material because of its high strength, fast print speeds and low part cost.
Are there different variants of the 5200, 5420W, and 5600?

Yes, there are different versions of each machine. These offer less expensive operating costs through material and consumable price breaks in exchange for a slightly higher hardware cost. For example, the 5200 has three variants: 5200, 5210, and 5210 PRO. The 5210 and 5210PRO will have cheaper individual part costs through discounts on raw powder and agents. The 5210 PRO offers bulk material ordering, significantly reducing the powder per kilogram cost.

What auxiliary equipment do I need to run an HP MJF machine?
In addition to the printer, build unit and processing station, you will need a media blast cabinet and a dedicated HEPA vacuum. Hawk Ridge Systems will provide turn-key quotes that include these items, as well as any starter materials and consumables.
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.
