3D Printed Parts Produced With HP and Markforged Technologies

HP Multi Jet Fusion 5210 3D Printing Production Solution

In only three years, HP introduced its initial line of Jet Fusion 4200 Series 3-D printers with its proprietary Multi Jet Fusion 3-D printing technology, followed by the 500/300 Series designed for prototyping and capable of full color.  HP announced last month the Jet Fusion 5200 Series for production-scale polymer 3-D printing and RE3DTech was the first company in the United States to purchase this breakthrough printer. 

In 2018, all HP 3D printers across the globe produced a total of 10 million parts. Next year, a single Multi Jet Fusion user — Smile Direct Club — plans to print 20 million orthodontic molds with its fleet of 4200 series machines. With the launch of the new 5200 Multi Jet Fusion platform, the number of parts produced could rise even higher. This new series of MJF printers incorporates lessons learned from the 4200 and Metal Jet platforms with built-in redundancies, better sensors, wider material compatibility, and machine learning algorithms for preventive maintenance and process optimization. For the right part (preferably something small that packs efficiently into the build chamber), this platform could be cost-competitive with injection molding for quantities ranging to 100,000 or more per year. (The 4200 series will continue to be supported, however, as an option for lower volumes.)

Markforged Metal X

Metal X – Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM)

Prints metal parts in a whole new way—Using a metal powder contained in a plastic binder then printing layer-by-layer.

The whole part is then sintered, removing the plastic binder and allowing the metal crystals to grow through the layers.

This process effectively erases the layer-to-layer strength reduction of many other 3D printing processes.

  • Larger build volume (250mm x 220mm x 200mm)
  • In-process laser inspection for dimensional accuracy
  • Integrated metal-material handling system
  • Full integration with Eiger cloud software platform (local storage and on-premise versions)
  • Cloud-enabled build camera

Materials Available:  17-4 Stainless Steel, H13 Tool Steel and A2 Tool Steel.

Future metal options to include Tool Steel (D-2, M-2),  Aluminum (6061, 7075),  Inconel 625 and Titanium (6AL 4V)

DELIVERING SUCCESS AT SCALE

My partner and I approached David at Re3dtech with our project and were greeted with kind and caring service. Throughout the last couple of months we have placed several orders in varying size and were even able to sit down with David and the owner to discuss our needs as a small business. Through this sit down we saw their passion for assisting both small and large clients in achieving their goals. We even had a hiccup with a batch of prints that was immediately addressed and remedied with precision and care. I almost don't want to recommend these guys because I feel like I have stumbled upon a hidden gem in 3D printing services and selfishly want to keep it to myself. Jokes aside we will be continuing our business relationship with the folks there and look forward to growing our order quantities and business with their help.
Re3DTech was instrumental in helping us get our product, Stroba™, to market faster! We needed a technology that could do snap fits and looks and feels as close the injection molded part as possible, and Re3D Tech was there for us. We used SOLIDWORKS Make to get in touch originally, upload models directly, and sign an NDA directly with their excellent team. It was really simple and easy to use their quoting tool as well. Excellent prices, excellent lead times, and superior quality are perfect words to describe our experience with Re3DTech. We went through many prototypes for Stroba™, and we at Goodfriend Innovations™ use Re3DTech for our other rapid prototyping jobs to help get our additional productions out to market faster than the competition. 5 Stars
I provided RE3DTECH three laser scanned ".stl" files for 3-D printing of prototypes. I used their on-line quote and file delivery process. The file acceptance and resultant quote were returned quickly. The parts were received at the quoted time. The parts are quite complex with many holes, angles, curvatures and notches. Each of the parts came out identical to the scanned parts dimensionally and passed the form/fit/function test in the upper level assembly. RE3DTECH has a high quality business process and produces high quality products. I will use them for future prototyping projects and recommend RE3DTECH.
Re3dtech is one of the most honest and reputable companies we have done business with. We decided to look into options for getting parts made in the USA for the retail market. It was awesome to find a local company with humble staff looking to provide their services meeting our criteria, not to mention meeting the Re3tech crew face to face and checking out their operation. Peter was very honest, knowledgable about design. Peter's creative element made working with him a great pleasure. Jim's flexibility was a breath of fresh air and greatly appreciated. CentralSound is proud to scratch the surface with Made in the USA parts in the retail market now, thanks to Re3dtech. Hope to do more business with them in the future.
Re3dtech has consistently delivered the best service I have ever received in the industry. Their response time is unmatched and they always stand by their parts and quality. They regularly make me look like an all star at my job.
It is always a pleasure to have a vendor that provides quality, experience, and always shows as much care for your order, and your product as you do!
