SAF Technology

Boost your manufacturing capability

SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion) technology is the power behind the H Series Production Platform, designed for production-level throughput of end-use parts.

 The SAF™ powered H350 3D printer gives you control of your production and costs. Grow your business through volume production with consistent end-use functional parts.

What is SAF?

SAF technology empowers a powder-based additive manufacturing process that employs industrial-grade technology to achieve higher levels of production of end-use parts.

How it works?

SAF technology uses an infrared-sensitive HAF (High Absorbing Fluid) to fuse particles of polymer powder together in discreet layers to build parts. It uses Big Wave™ powder management, a proprietary technology that includes powder distribution across a bed, where industrial-grade Piezo-electric print heads jet the fluid in prescribed areas to create each layer of the part. This is followed by exposure to infrared energy, which causes the areas with HAF to melt and fuse together. The sequence is repeated until the parts are completed.


Accurate, production-grade parts with best-in-class consistency.

Built for demanding industries

Additive manufacturing has seen growth in demand for products with pandemic-proof supply chains, shorter design-to-part cycles and reduced-spare-part inventory. Commercial equipment, consumer goods, automotive and transportation are some of the industries demanding equipment that fulfills their production needs. H350 is the additive manufacturing solution with the control that customers need to deliver the consistency, accuracy and competitive cost that these markets demand.

Quality finished, end-use products

Consumer-facing products that require a high-quality finishing such as clips, eye-wear, consumer electronic cases and ear-phones.

Molds, and robust load bearing parts

Brackets, mold tools, machine components, jigs, adapters, manifolds and manufacturing aids.

Functionally enhanced parts

Parts with movement such as hinges, gears and clips; electric protection connectors, improved impact resistance or such as shatter-proof trims, durable housings and covers.

Part production control:

Quality control is always at the heart of successful volume production applications. With H350 you can establish a manufacturing control system that will enable you to certify your production.

Control consistency

Produce high-volume parts with accuracy and repeatability. The H350 3D printer prints with exceptional detail and a smooth surface finish.

Control your workflow

The H350 gives you the option to operate your way. Track your materials and log your build data, effortlessly adjust print settings and certify your production like never before. Plus, get stable production configuration thanks to long-lasting industrial printheads as well as build freedom with simple, efficient nesting.

Control your cost

Run lean and boost your return-on-investment with the H350. Get predictable and simple part cost estimation, manage fewer consumables and produce consistent and accurate parts made up of 80% reused powder. Additionally, save on machine recertification and part costs with long-lasting printheads and a12 percent nesting density.

H350 Materials

Produce engineering-grade parts.

Stratasys High Yield PA11 polymer is derived from a 100 percent renewable bio-source from sustainably grown castor beans. Processed with SAF technology on the H350 3D printer, it delivers production-grade, end-use parts for high-volume demands — driving new areas of business growth.

In additive manufacturing, PA12 is the go-to material for prototyping. But in traditional volume production of end-use parts, PA11 is much more widely used due to its higher ductility, higher impact and higher fatigue resistance making it suitable for a wider range of industrial applications. PA11 is also eco-friendly and 100 percent bio-based from sustainably grown castor beans.
