Providing Tighter Control Over the Powder Bed Print Process 

SAF technology provides the accuracy, repeatability, and control vital for consistent production and lower part costs.

SAF technology is powder-based additive manufacturing providing higher-volume part production at a lower cost per part.

SAF technology powers the H350 powder bed 3D printer. SAF uses HAF™ infrared absorption fluid to fuse powdered polymer particles together in layers to build parts. Powder management is achieved with Big Wave™ technology, which provides reliable powder distribution across the build area. Piezo-electric print heads jet the HAF fluid onto the powder, which is then exposed to infrared energy that fuses the powder together to form each layer of the part. 

Benefits of SAF Technology 

Built for higher-volume additive production volume that is tailored for short-run jobs, SAF technology gives you greater thermal control over the build process compared to other powder bed technologies. The resulting benefits include consistent part properties regardless of nesting density, which ultimately provides higher yields and lower per-part cost.  

Advantages of SAF Technology

SAF technology employs features that best the competition on several fronts. Big Wave unidirectional powder management maintains a uniform print bed where all points experience equal temperatures resulting in consistent print quality. Industrial piezo-electric print heads are non-consumable items, and the requirement for only one fusing fluid reduces ongoing maintenance and operational costs.

Grow Your Manufacturing Capability

SAF technology opens opportunities to possibilities that traditional manufacturing and other 3D printing methods can’t.

SAF technology is changing the way manufacturers view the production of plastic parts. It creates opportunities that previously weren’t economically feasible with injection molding or other 3D printing methods due to high tool-up costs, lack of build capacity or supply chain constraints. SAF technology changes that paradigm, offering new business possibilities.

Production

The H350 printer leverages multiple features to provide benefits over competing powder bed systems. Fewer consumables lowers your operational costs which ultimately reduces the cost per part. The higher nesting density compared to other solutions increases productivity and also helps lower per-part cost. Regardless of application, the H350 takes additive manufacturing to new levels of production.
