Like Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Multi Jet Fusion is a powder 3D printing technology. Unlike SLS, where the polymer is spot-fused using lasers, MJF fuses the powder and bonding agent with IR light.
For an SLS printer running at 100% capacity, it can take up to 30 hours to fuse and cool the printed product. With MJF, on the other hand, printing takes 12.5 hours, and quick cooling — 4 hours.
MJF uses the PA 12 polyamide for printing. As a result, printed items can be made denser and less porous than with SLS. MJF-printed items have isotropic mechanical properties, higher definition, and a smoother surface.
If you need to print an intricate design with thin walls, inscriptions, and logos, Multi Jet Fusion and PA 12 are your best option.
