  • Use of PolyJet technology in manufacture of new product
    Vaupotič, Boštjan ; Brezočnik, Miran ; Balič, Jože
    The paper presents a new approach to rapid manufacturing of a new product with PolyJet technology. Resolution, accuracy, speed and materials are the basic factors of rapid prototyping which mutually ... exclude themselves on most devices. PolyJet is a technology that solves these problems simultaneously. The manufacture of a product by PolyJet technology has proved to be a good approach. All advantages offered by this technology have been applied and all requirements satisfied. By testing on the first prototype the adequacy of the product shape has been established and the prototype has been suitably adapted. As the data on the product shape are in computerized form, the cahnges on the product are made easily. Regrettably, the models from rapid prototyping do not allow major loadings and exposure to exacting conditions since the materials used are in the development stage and are gradually gaining strength and toughness. Our product is not exposed to major mechanical loadings, so the process is adequate. By this technology very sophisticated and complex products can be made. It assures the manufacture of nested structures and mechanusms already assembled. The price is influenced only by the product size. The shape complexity is not important at all. In case of small quality of products, not exposed to major mechanical loadings, the models made by PolyJet technology are suitable also as final products.
