HP Multi Jet Fusion industrial printing systems print build structures that can be filled with hundreds of 3D objects, with the same quantity, size and shape, or with different characteristics. The production costs of a build structure are fixed, regardless of the number of parts it contains.

Weerg's facility in Venice, Italy, is now hosting the largest installation of HP Multi Jet Fusion model 5210 3D printers in Europe.
