The HP Jet Fusion 380 printer is one of the latest models unveiled by the American manufacturer HP. Like the HP Jet Fusion 580 printer, these two additive manufacturing solutions make it possible to create polychrome functional parts from the polyamide material: PA12. The Jet Fusion 380 can print full-colour parts while maintaining the mechanical properties and quality of the parts. It has a printing volume of 190 x 254 x 248 mm. This solution mainly targets R&D teams, design studios, entrepreneurs, universities and other research institutes.

The HP Jet Fusion 380 printer, a solution for very precise and functional parts

This additive manufacturing solution is based on Multi Jet Fusion technology, the manufacturer’s proprietary technology. This uses the fine-grained material PA 12, which produces ultra-fine layers of 80 microns (0.08 mm). The result is high density parts and low porosity compared to PA 12 parts produced by laser sintering. Multi Jet Fusion technology also provides an exceptionally smooth surface finish which means functional parts require only minimal post-processing once produced. This technology is ideal for functional prototypes and small series of final parts.

The HP Jet Fusion 380 printer, a full-color solution

The Jet Fusion 380 can use 8 chemical agents at a time and offers a complete range of colours. With the HP Jet Fusion 380 printer it is possible to print your parts ten times faster than the FDM and SLS printers on the market. This reduces the cost per part and significantly reduces your production time.
