PolyJet 3D Printing Services

PolyJet printing, or material jetting, is a 3D printing technology that produces parts with remarkable detail and an impeccably smooth surface finish.

How PolyJet Works

A standout feature of PolyJet printing lies in its capability to simultaneously print with multiple materials, allowing it to create objects with various material properties or unique color combinations.

The PolyJet printing process begins by depositing ultra-thin layers of liquid photopolymer materials onto a build platform. Multiple print heads jet these materials, similar to how inkjet printers work.

As each layer is deposited, it is rapidly cured using UV light to solidify the material. This creates highly detailed and intricate parts.

PolyJet Use Cases

PolyJet printing is used across a wide range of industries. One prominent application is in the field of product design and development. This technology allows intricate details, smooth surfaces, and a variety of colors for comprehensive visual evaluation and functional testing.

PolyJet is especially useful for small-batch production and custom components with complex geometries. Furthermore, the ability to print with multiple materials in a single print run provides the flexibility to create parts with different material properties.

Popular PolyJet Finishes

Painted

PolyJet parts can be printed in various colors, but painting opens up additional customization. After printing, parts can be primed and painted to meet specific color requirements.

Polishing

This process involves gradually smoothing the surface using abrasive materials or compounds, resulting in a glossy finish that highlights the fine details of the printed object.

Sanded

By carefully sanding the surface using various grits of sandpaper, rough areas, layer lines, or support marks can be smoothed out, creating a more visually appealing and refined part. Sanding allows for easier painting and clear coating.

Clear coating

This transparent layer adds a glossy finish, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the part while safeguarding it against scratches and environmental factors. Clear coating helps achieve a polish on decorative or display objects.

Popular PolyJet materials

PolyJet offers a wide range of epoxyresins designed to be equivalents to the thermoplastic materials used in other manufacturing technologies. Some of the most popular options include:
