XYZ Machine Tools has been selected as an official reseller of the revolutionary HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution, which uses HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology to print production-quality parts at speeds up to 10-times faster and at half the cost of comparable 3D printing systems.
“We see this as a fantastic opportunity as 3D printing is a perfect addition to the machine tools that we currently offer. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology is taking this process to new levels of performance and productivity, making the process truly production orientated,” says Nigel Atherton, Managing Director, XYZ Machine Tools.
The key to the speed of this system is its Multi Jet technology, which delivers 30 million drops per second across each inch of working area. This is then combined with HP’s fusing and detail agents that allow extreme fine detail and dimensional accuracy to be produced with layer thicknesses of 0.07/0.08 mm. The quality is controlled by precise temperature monitoring during the printing process, with heat being applied or reduced automatically to ensure correct fusion of materials. Build speeds are up to 4500 cm3 per hour, which compares extremely favourably when compared to conventional material extrusion or laser sintering processes. In line with XYZ’s philosophy of easy to use control systems HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions are user-friendly and streamline workflow from developing component build and automatic packing of the print chamber.
Visitors to the XYZ Machine Tools stand at MACH 2018 will be able to see and discuss the benefits of this HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions first-hand and witness how it can work alongside conventional metalcutting technology to produce a seamless design to manufacturing process.
