The 5210 system is the most advanced 3D-printing production system from HP and the first of its kind to be installed within a UK service bureau. According to Nick Allen, 3DPRINTUK’s CEO: “We’ve been watching MJF mature since 2015 and have been waiting for the right moment to add it to our offerings. We believe the time is right to invest in MJF, as it now meets the demands of our customers and their applications with the 5200 series. It is important to distinguish the investment in the 5210 system over previous systems in the original 4200 series of machines, because it marks a considerable step forward with the MJF process. This is based on our extensive in-house testing of parts from both series and there are big improvements with the 5210 in key areas such as part quality, repeatability, Z-axis scaling, heating control and accuracy.”

During the last decade, 3DPRINTUK has established itself as a leading provider of 3D-printed polymer parts using PBF processes, specifically SLS. This has generated a wealth of experience and expertise that transfers well to the MJF process and a move taken to meet client demands. For batch production and highly functional parts using 3D-printing, both the SLS and MJF processes compare well with each other, with each bettering the other in a few key areas.

By running both SLS and MJF systems, 3DPRINTUK is now in a position to deliver the very best polymer parts specific to clients’ individual applications. Customers can either specify their chosen production systems or, utilising the expertise of 3DPRINTUK, make use of the company’s quoting system that will funnel priority requirements to ensure the best possible outcome, in terms of the quality and functionality of the parts together with value for money and delivery times.
