The newly developed HSS process makes the printing of design and functional components possible, which are in terms of their qualities and properties in no way inferior to comparable additive processes or injection moulding - but which, due to the flexible process, can show a much higher material variety (TPU, PA12 and others). Versatile and fully functional prototypes such as clamps, shoe soles, buckles and other sample parts or mock-ups can be manufactured quickly and easily - with no limitations on complexity. Further possible applications for HSS products are also offered in the design of car interiors or product packaging.

Applications of HSS

  • Versatile and fully functional prototypes
  • Education Institutes / Research Departments: Material development with the HSS process
  • Functional parts for the development of consumer products: Packaging design, housing for electronics
  • Design models: architectural models, interior fittings, furniture elements, mock-ups
  • Automotive, Aerospace: Interior Design, Gear Shift Lever, Ventilation Flaps, Cockpit Elements

Advantages of the HSS process

  • Open source materials
  • Own material development possible: Open source system
  • High flexibility due to adjustable process parameters
  • Modular software with customized macros & process data mining functions
  • Simple process: only one ink (Binding Agent)
  • Industrial ink-jet printheads
  • High-quality components through constant build speed at high resolution and detail accuracy
