HP to move into metal 3D printing

16 October 2017

HP plans to make the move in 2018 and build on last year’s release of its Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, which was billed as the world’s first production-ready 3D printing system.

The company said: “The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionises design, prototyping and manufacturing, and for the first time, delivers superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster and at half the cost of current 3D print systems. By printing functional parts at the individual voxel level (a voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing), HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customisation.”

The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution offers:

• Simplified workflow and reduced cost for radical prototyping 

• Delivery of final parts manufacturing with breakthrough economics

• Open materials and software innovation platform that lowers barriers to adoption and enables new applications across industries

“Our 3D printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 million voxels per second, versus one point at a time, giving our prototyping and manufacturing partners radically faster build speeds, functional parts and breakthrough economics,” said Stephen Nigro, President of HP’s 3D printing business. “The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution delivers a combination of speed, quality, and cost never seen in the industry. Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers.”
