MultiJet printers (MJP) use an inkjet printing process that uses technology to deposit plastic resin or casting wax materials layer by layer. Multijet printers are used to build parts, patterns, and molds with fine feature detail that handles a variety of applications. This is the top choice for investment casting patterns that need to have sharp-edge detail and high resolution output. This process uses thin layers of two UV curable liquid waxes. One for the part and the other for the support. The support wax melts at a lower temperature than the part wax and is post-processed in a no-touch method. This means that no detail is lost when removing the support, unlike other wax processes.
These printers are economical and can be easily cleaned without damage. In addition, multijet printers have selectable print modes that allow users to choose the best combination of resolution and print speed. The parts printed from these machines can achieve the utmost accuracy and are now suitable for some end-use applications.
Multijet printers are convenient, efficient, and office compatible. If needing to print a part to decrease time and labor such as, jewelry, dental, medical, or aerospace items, MJP printers are ideal. MJP printers can essentially print any geometry and provide convenience along the way.
Try before you buy!
If you’re considering a purchase of a 3D printer you may want to test your part on one or multiple machines to determine the best investment.
