Digitization, individualization, lightweight construction and ever more demanding geometric requirements in design and technology are posing ever greater challenges for traditional production. Unimaginable just a few years ago, 3D printing is increasingly making its way into the industry’s production halls. With commercially successful examples even in mass production with runs beyond 10,000 units. With high potential for optimizing production processes. With sustainable savings effects in setup, tooling and assembly costs. Additive manufacturing enables fast and flexible production without limits. And thus becomes a pioneer today for the competitive digital production of tomorrow.
3D printing applications from voxeljet ensure competitive advantages - technically and economically.
Complex geometries and increasingly varied and smaller batch sizes. Wherever conventional processes reach their economic limits due to cost-intensive mold construction or changeover times, additive 3D production processes offer essential economic advantages. Complementary to existing production lines.
Production on any scale
voxeljet has the world's largest and most powerful 3D printing systems for large components or large runs of small components. We overcome the limitations of traditional 3D printing systems and processes. With the ability to port production data of components across the entire voxeljet 3D printer family.
Accelerate Time to Market
By eliminating the need for tool and mould making, additive production processes shorten the manufacturing times of components by up to 75%. In product development in model and prototype construction. In the production of small and medium-sized series or in the manufacture of components with many variants.
Today, 3D printing offers art an entirely new way to shape the world. One that clearly pushes the boundaries of what is possible and imposes almost no limits on ideas.

voxeljet Additive Manufacturing offers the advantage of a complete digital data chain across all phases of the product life cycle.
With continuous data chains, voxeljet offers the possibility of transferring production data of components across the entire voxeljet 3D printer family. From rapid prototyping, efficient machines for the production of medium-sized series orders to the world’s largest and most powerful 3D printing systems for additive mass production of large components or large runs of small components. We overcome the limitations of traditional 3D printing systems and processes, enabling a seamless and efficient transition from design to volume production. We also offer the option of additive mold making in perfect synthesis with existing production lines.
3D production.For new scope.In almost every industry.
Additive manufacturing will change industrial production in many facets. On the one hand, the highly individualized production of one-of-a-kind products and small and very small batches will once again become efficient and economically interesting. On the other hand, robust, high-performance 3D production systems are penetrating areas that until recently were reserved for traditional manufacturing processes. In the near future, additive manufacturing, in combination with the digitalization of value chains, will change industrial production forever.
Sand moulds and cores in any complexity for metal casting. From single pieces to medium runs. Manufactured without tools using the Binder Jetting process. Flawlessly manufactured in one piece even with undercuts and bionic geometries. With certified sand binder combinations for almost all castable alloys. For optimum casting results even with extremely large components up to 4,000 x 2,000 x 1,000 mm³.
Economical and time-saving. The additive production of investment casting models perfectly made of plastic using the voxeljet PMMA Binder Jetting process. The process uses acrylic glass with excellent burn-out properties. Particularly complex geometries can be produced cost-effectively in small and medium-sized batches without the need for costly pattern production. For component sizes up to 1,000 x 600 x 500 mm³.
Maximum efficiency and precision in the realization of complex concrete formwork. In the large-format voxeljet binder jetting process, shuttering skins up to 21 mm thin can be 3D-printed and combined with conventional shuttering systems. With completely new possibilities for architects and element construction. Curvatures, detailed facades and undercuts can be realized without much effort.
Functional Prototyping and Rapid Prototyping. Using the voxeljet Polymer High Speed Sintering (HSS) process, voxeljet HSS machines produce polymer parts whose properties are equivalent to those of injection moulded parts from conventional production. Without tools and without support structures. In any geometry, any complexity and the highest level of detail. In component dimensions up to 290 x 140 x 180 mm³.
Finely detailed architectural models, high-resolution film props or realistic exhibits and replicas of valuable museum pieces. voxeljet Binder Jetting 3D printing can produce any object, however complex, quickly and without tools. On almost any scale. Depending on the material, components can be produced true to the original in dimensions of 4,000 x 2,000 x 1,000 mm³ from sand or 1,000 x 600 x 500 mm³ from PMMA in one piece with the highest level of detail.
With unique material properties, industrial ceramics are among the materials of the future. They are characterized by enormous hardness, bending strength and temperature resistance. With 3D printing systems specially adapted to the production of specific ceramic materials, voxeljet is redefining the freedom of design in the production of ceramic components. Even the most complex and large-format ceramic components can be produced quickly.
voxeljet is one of the pioneers of the first hour when it comes to establishing 3D production processes in professional or industrial environments. Whether you want to produce design models, functional models, cores and molds for investment or sand casting. In plastic, ceramics or sand. Our high-speed sintering and universal jetting technologies, which were specially developed for industrial use, are among the best the market has to offer worldwide. Especially when volume, efficiency and speed in production are important. Our 3D printing systems support a wide range of material combinations for even greater flexibility.
Our processes are furan resin based (FDB or ODB), phenolic resin based (PDB) or water glass based (IOB) and are ideal for the high quality requirements of the foundry industry.
In addition to classic quartz sand, we offer cerabeads and chrome ore with different grain sizes.
The finishing is done by epoxy resin infiltration or sealing.
Our processes Polymer High Speed Sintering (HSS) and PolyPor B or PolyPor C are optimal for the additive manufacturing of plastic components.
Our plastics processes can be used to print standard polymethyl methacryate and polyamide 12 and, on request, other polymers such as PP, TPU, PEBA and EVA.
The finishing is done by epoxy resin infiltration, cold or hot wax infiltration or can be colored and blasted as required.
Our ceramic processes are phenolic resin-based processes (PDB) and water based (CDB) are optimal for the production of complex and filigree cores or molds.
With our ceramic processes, silicate (SiC) and oxide (AIO2, TiO2, ZrO2) based ceramics can be printed.
Post-processing can be done by drying or impregnation with subsequent sintering in an oven.
