HP MJF manufacturing builds parts using thermoplastic materials: Nylon PA11, Nylon PA12, Glass Filled Nylon, PP and TPU. The most popular material is Nylon PA12 which works great for all different parts that require tough, durable and flexible for prototype and production. All materials are sustainable as the processes refreshes the powder with recycled powder to reduce production costs while keeping part properties. Learn more about the available MJF materials.
All parts can be custom finished to match your prototype or production needs using HP’s color printing, dyeing, vapor smoothing, painting or plating.

The Fastest 3D Printing
Don’t let its size fool you: the HP Multi Jet Fusion is the fastest 3D printer on the block, with industry-leading production speeds up to 50 times faster with printing materials than other 3D printing technologies land cost reductions of up to 50% in comparison to SLS and FDM.
In addition to being cheaper and faster, HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing offers superior surface finish, detail resolution, and strength when compared to ColorJet, selective laser sintering (SLS), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and stereolithography (SLA).
Whether you are in product development, small-batch manufacturing, or product maintenance Elimold and HP Multi Jet Fusion printing with fusion technology will provide measurable benefits to your production on the first run.

What is Multi Jet Fusion
Our MJF printing service reinvents how we prototype and produce functional parts, delivering quality output, up to 10 times faster and at reduced cost.
The process begins by applying a layer of material in a work area. In the opposite direction, in one continuous pass, we print fusing and detailing agents across the full working area. This pass combines the printing with diffusing energy and the process is then completed. HP’s proprietary architecture is capable of printing 30 million drops/second along every single inch of bed width, enabling extreme precision and dimensional accuracy.
To produce truly functional parts, it’s important to ensure that the material has been properly fused and that part edges are smooth and well-defined. To achieve part quality at speed, HP invented a multi-agent print process. In the time it takes slower point processes, like material extrusion and laser sintering, to build 1,000 parts – MJF 3D printing technology would have created several thousands of parts. Using HP’s proprietary multi-agent printing, the MJF technology achieves new levels of part quality at breakthrough speeds.
In 3D design and printing, a voxel represents a value on a regular grid in a three-dimensional space. By controlling the processes of each individual voxel through agents, MJF can produce parts that can’t be made by other methods.
Though this print style has been compared to selective laser sintering, it works in a completely different way, fusing layers of powder in one pass, while SLS works by sintering each individual part. This means that MJF technology can produce more parts faster, resulting in increased throughput and higher production quantities.
Which applications are best suited to Jet Fusion 3D Printing?
The multi Jet Fusion manufacturing technique is particularly useful for creating unique plastic parts with a good surface finish. With such technology, you can create very complex shapes in a very short amount of time.
Thanks to this technology, you can reduce costs and improve performance. The Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology can be used for mechanical (e.g., prototypes, articulated objects, geared systems), electrical, medical, ornamental, automotive, to even educational purposes.
Increased Competitive Advantage Throughout Product Life Cycles
The high speed and low cost of Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing makes it possible to add value at every stage of your product life cycles. Beginning with product development, MJF can quickly print functional prototypes and proofs of concept, allowing you to take your product through more iterations in less time and get to market even faster. This developmental advantage also translates to other manufacturing technologies: MJF can create durable tooling for thermoformed or cast urethane parts in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods.
It’s not just prototypes—MJF is an excellent choice for initial production runs or other low-volume manufacturing. Because of their unique design possibilities, 3D printed parts allow manufacturers a variety of opportunities to decrease cost and improve functionality, whether by combining multi-piece assemblies into single parts, reducing part weight with internal lattice structures, or using just-in-time manufacturing to reduce inventory and overhead.
