Can Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Be Qualified for Production?


Can Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Be Qualified for Production?
Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) is a relatively new additive manufacturing technology which is great for creating functional prototypes — but can it be qualified for production? Here, we examine the properties that make MJF suitable for production.
The same qualities that make it attractive for prototyping also give it numerous advantages as an option for production:
  • No tooling cost – Unlike injection molding, no tooling is required to make parts with Multi Jet Fusion.
  • Short lead time – There is no waiting for tooling to be built, since parts are made directly from the database.
  • Design freedom - MJF offers design freedom and removes limitations imposed by traditional manufacturing processes.
  • Low cost engineering changes – Design changes can be implemented at a much lower cost than other production methods. No tooling is needed to modify, and since inventory can be set lower, inventory control of revisions is simplified.

SICAM Partners With Amloid Toys to Help Triple Sales


SICAM Partners With Amloid Toys to Help Triple Sales
At SICAM, we continue to perfect our 3D printing processes and technology, building on over three decades of history and expertise in the industry. However, we also proud to help other companies success through our rapid prototyping services, like short-run injection molding. One particular case is toymaker Amloid. While they’re a huge company, partnering with Tonka and Crayola, Amloid is a family-owned company with a history of manufacturing dating back to 1916.
Although Amloid had enjoyed immense achievements through its years in the toy market, they were suffering from rapid prototyping issues that were hindering their growth and impeding their sales. That where SICAM came in. Let’s take a look at this case study and see how we were able to help Amloid triple their sales and continue to further secure their foothold in the children’s toy industry.

What Is the SHOTSHEEN® Production Finish?


What Is the SHOTSHEEN® Production Finish?
While 3D printing has been available for over 30 years, we are still finding ways to perfect processes to give a better end product faster and at a lower cost. One issue that has plagued 3D printing is being able to create something that looks like an injection molded part.
At SICAM, weve developed the SHOTSHEEN® finish to solve these problems with Multi Jet Fusion production. Our trademarked finish not only looks more like an injection molded part than typical MJF finishes, but it does so without increasing labor costs.

So, what can you do with Multi Jet Fusion? - Part 1

This is the first in a series of articles presenting examples of what you can achieve with Multi Jet Fusion. While we have been producing amazing parts for our customers, our confidentiality agreements prevent us from sharing those projects at this time. As an alternative and to demonstrate what Multi Jet Fusion can do we decided to do two things: select and produce parts that are open sourced on the internet and to create our own designs.

This article will highlight the amazing details that can be produced using Multi Jet Fusion.
