Forecast 3D printed 1,000,000 parts on 12 HP Jet Fusion systems

Company now has doubled capacity to 24 machines

A year ago, California-based Forecast 3D opened up its 3D Manufacturing Center with 12 HP Multi Jet Fusion machines (rapidly expanding from the first two MJF 4200 systems installed). Since then, the service bureau has 3D printed 1,000,000 parts using HP’s MJF technology. With this track record of success and growing demand, Forecast 3D is now doubling down: the company’s 3D Manufacturing Center now hosts 24 HP MJF 4210 machines, targeting 2,000,000 parts in an even shorter lapse of time.

With the production power of 24 HP Jet Fusion 3D printers, Forecast 3D now has the capability to produce hundreds of thousands of production parts each week. This upgraded capacity, combined with MJF’s speed and material properties, ensures fulfillment of high volume production orders faster than ever.

HP’s 3D printing technology utilizes fusing and detailing agents over a powdered nylon 12 building area, with infrared lamps fusing an entire layer in a single pass. This highly efficient method can build functional, geometrically complex parts 80-micron layers at a time – with mechanical properties that rival injection molded parts.

With this modern production process, the company’s clients are no longer tied to traditional manufacturing design constraints or required to make large capital investments for tooling. Parts can be delivered within days, allowing as many design revisions as needed, while still receiving the parts just in time, and in turn, deliver products to market faster.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content, making it look like more people are working on this website than they really were. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases from companies that expect journalists to somehow provide communication services for free.
