One of the most famous names in the world for digital hardware. HP also offer their own industrial-grade thermoplastic 3D printing technology - Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) which achieves fine details and high dimensional accuracy of small features with reliable, repeatable results. The HP Jet Fusion 540 prints clean white models, while the HP Jet Fusion 580 prints in full multi-colour.
HP Jet Fusion printers are fully enclosed printing systems with automatic powder management which automates material mixing, loading, and material reclamation which reduces waste by reclaiming and re-using the remaining material with a mix of 80% recycled and 20% new powder each time.

HP’s 3D printers lead the way for functional design, and the HP Jet Fusion 3D printer range is testament to this, utilising HP’s patented Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) printing process. You are able to achieve fine detail and high dimensional accuracy for small features with minimal effort. The HP range of 3D printers deliver assured, repeatable results, time after time, with huge uptime and a high level of automation.
MJF uses plastic powder, light-absorbing ink and infrared heat to produce solid plastic parts with high mechanical strength. An easy-to-use solution that integrates material mixing and loading, printing, and reclaiming material in one device.
As a manufacturing process, MJF has the capability to create new applications for 3D printing. It’s ideal for manufacturing end-use functional parts with complex geometries, because it prints in nylon and printed parts are self-supporting. This means you can print parts without support material, which opens up design possibilities. MJF offers faster cycling times than SLS and prints at a lower cost, making production runs more efficient from a time and cost perspective.
Using the powerful 3D print-preparation capabilities of HP’s SmartStream 3D Build Manager software means you are able to help make all of your 3D printing jobs successful to save time and money meaning you avoid the frustration of trial-and-error printing. The Auto-pack options means you can arrange as many parts as possible within the build volume for efficient printing. Printing lots of small parts? Then enable the Caging option which means a cage is printed around them to ensure they don’t get lost during the cleaning process, this is just one of many carefully though out options to help make efficiency a number one.
HP’s 3D printable powders are also non-hazardous and the printer itself has filters to minimise emissions. Universities, design and development labs, and engineering teams are prime candidates for this remarkable machine.
