3D printing is an additive manufacturing process in which one or more materials (usually plastic) are applied layer by layer (= additive) to create a three-dimensional workpiece. The shift application is computer-controlled. Liquid or solid materials are "printed" according to the dimensions and shapes of a CAD file. This manufacturing process enables fast and easy production of workpieces without the need for expensive tools.
Many components or housings that were previously produced by injection moulding can be supplemented or even replaced by 3D printed products. By means of additive manufacturing, components made of metal, plastic and ceramic can be produced within a short time. In addition, there is a great opportunity to design in line with the process from the outset and to optimize components by integrating functions that are not possible in injection molding.

3D printing process:
We rely on the innovative Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing process from HP. It combines the strengths of the two well-known rapid prototyping processes Polyjet and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). The high number of print heads requires only a few seconds to print individual layers and immediately bond them together (Polyjet). The multifunctional polyamide 12 known from the SLS process is used as printing material. The Jet Fusion printers emit 300 million drops of liquid per second with an accuracy of 21 µm. With more than 3 cm of print per hour, Multi Jet Fusion is one of the fastest 3D printing technologies.
We create your objects with an almost 100% density. These are almost isotropic and therefore have a high strength in all directions, which is comparable to conventionally produced plastic parts.
Thanks to the Multi Jet Fusion process, workpieces with a high surface quality can be produced and further refined by conventional blasting. This means that the components no longer have any construction stages and can be dyed, painted or coated in dyeing plants. The surfaces correspond to an eroded surface as known from injection moulding.
Our process enables the realization of complex geometries, undercuts and trapped spaces. This technology is only limited by very filigree structures (wall thickness of at least 0.5 mm).
