Metal Jet S100 3D Printer for Mass Production

May 13, 2023
HP, Inc.'s binder-jetting metal 3D printer was specifically designed for the mass production of metal parts.

The Metal Jet S100 Solution helps scale 3D metals for mass production. The binder-jetting printer provides industrial production capabilities, integrated workflow, subscription, and service offerings through a modular solution that enables build units to travel between four different stations.


  • Station 1: Powder management station for enhanced operational efficiency across single or multiple printers—automatically mixes, sieves, and loads powder to the build unit.
  • Station 2: Metal 3D printer delivers process reliability and repeatability with up to 4 times nozzle redundancy and native 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution
  • Station 3: Metal 3D printer designed for industrial-grade metal 3D printing and high production uptime in 24/7 manufacturing conditions
  • Station 4: Curing station achieves an industrial process control with controllable vacuum flow and uniform head distribution.

HP’s Thermal Inkjet printhead improves printing speed, part quality, and repeatability. The advanced latex chemistries enable stronger green parts, eliminating the need for de-binding and yielding industrial production-grade quality. New geometries, density control, and designs to lightweight or consolidate metal parts push the boundaries of what is possible with 3D printing. Process steps needed to create parts are shortened whilst costs due to manual labor or complexity requirements are reduced, driving efficiencies across the supply chain.


Binder jetting can boost productivity tenfold, allowing for processing layer by layer versus point process. Isotropic properties also require no post-processing and no support removal, and the use of metal powders is also more cost-effective than laser-based 3D printing powder. Printheads leverage decades of industrial thermal inkjet technology developments, defining geometry and delivering high resolution and system robustness, making mass 3D metal parts a viable option for commercial manufacturing.
