Polyjet Printing (PJP)

PolyJet offers the unique ability to print parts of multiple materials and colors, with different mechanical or physical properties, all in a single build, there by opening up numerous combinations of prototyping materials.

Polyjet process is a very precise 3D printing method, producing accurate parts with a very smooth finish. The nature of this product allows for the simultaneous deposition of a range of materials, which means that a single part can be produced from multiple materials with different characteristics and properties.

PolyJet works by jetting photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers onto a build platform selectively through multiple jet heads (with others simultaneously jetting support materials where required). Each photopolymer layer is cured by UV light immediately after it is jetted, producing fully cured models that can be handled and used immediately, without post-curing. The gel-like support material, designed to support complicated geometries, is subsequently removed by water jetting.

The Jet technology enables horizontal layers of just 16 µm (0.0006″), fine details, and ultra-thin walls down to 0.6 mm (0.024″) depending on the geometry of the part. That means PolyJet is capable of building very precise mechanical components, offering you high-quality prototypes for a shorter time to market.
