Proto Labs Europe announces the addition of Multi Jet Fusion to its suite of 3D printing technologies. This production-grade 3D printing technology, developed by HP, is designed to build fully functional plastic prototypes and parts with speed, precision and consistency.

The company now offers customers four industrial 3D printing processes which can produce plastic, metal and elastomeric components in as fast as one day. Multi Jet Fusion technology is suited for producing functional prototypes, jigs and fixtures, production-ready parts, and components that require high strength or temperature resistance.
