The HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 3D printing system is suitable for prototyping and short-run manufacturing, offering fast print times, high productivity and low cost per part. The system consists of the Jet Fusion 3D 4200 3D printer, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station, and one or more HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Units which move between the station and the printer.

The 3D printer prints at the level of individual voxels, the 3D equivalents of 2D pixels, for greater control over part properties and the ability to deliver mass customization. According to HP, the machine provides accurate thermal control of every layer and enables predictive corrections. In-printer quality checks are reported via a touchscreen to help minimize errors and enable accurate job progress tracking.

The machine offers a build volume measuring 406 × 305 × 406 mm (16" × 12" × 16"). Building speed ranges to 4,500 cm3/hr. (215 in.3/hr.). Layer thickness can be 0.07 to 0.12 mm (0.0021" to 0.005"), and print resolution is 1,200 dpi.

The Jet Fusion 3D 4200 includes HP SmartStream 3D Build Manager and Command Center software which provide complete software solutions to streamline the workflow from design to final part. The system is also compatible with Autodesk Netfabb Engine for HP and Materialise Build Processor for HP Multi Jet Fusion. Both .3mf and .stl file formats are supported.

The accompanying HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station features Fast Cooling technology. The station automates material mixing, sieving and unloading; cools parts; enables cleaner unpacking of parts; and allows for material re-use and mixing. The station is stocked with one or more HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Units which move between the station and printer. Each build unit is loaded with material and slotted into the printer; when printing is complete, the unit is returned to the station for processing and a new unit can be slotted without stopping production.
