Multi Jet Fusion is a new technology for additive manufacturing on a powder bed, developed by Hewlett Packard. Each layer is heated uniformly from the start of the process. Then a fusing agent is jetted onto the surface of certain sections of the parts and a detailing agent around the contours to improve part resolution. When lamps pass over the powder bed, the fusing agent captures the heat, creating a layer.
We make orthopaedic soles. Each one is unique but hundreds need to be printed every week, very quickly and as cheaply as possible. Each part is made to fit the morphology of the client’s foot. This is mass production of bespoke parts.
