HP Unveils ‘World’s First Production-Ready’ 3D Printing System
At RAPID, the largest 3D additive manufacturing conference, HP Inc unveiled the world’s first production-ready commercial 3Dprinting system, marking the next major step in its journey to bring disruptive manufacturing solutions to market. Visit hp.com/go/newsroom for details.
The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionizes 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 customization.
“Our 3D printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 millionvoxels 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.”
The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution leverages HP’s decades of research and expertise in precision mechanics, microfluidics and materials sciences. But no one company, not even one with HP’s unparalleled expertise, scale or assets, can transform the global manufacturing industry alone.HP is proud to have the input and support of leading manufacturers, co-development partners and strategic partners, including Nike, BMW,Autodesk, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Materialise, Proto Labs, Shapeways and Siemens
“BMW is a pioneer and early adopter of innovative technologies in the field of additive manufacturing, especially for prototyping in concept cars and series-like approval builds. For our future roadmap toward serial part production and personal customization, we see major potential in our partnership with HP to investigate this new kind of 3D printing technology at an early stage,” said Jens Ertel, Head of BMW Group Additive Manufacturing Center.
