HP leads the charge towards 3D production

April 2, 2019

At the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference, HP Inc. has announced it will showcase new customers, applications, and technology as it continues leading the industry toward 3D production

HP’s advanced portfolio of 3D printing technology continues to expand, and the OEM says it is helping customers accelerate their digital manufacturing journey.

More than 10 million parts were produced on HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology in the last year. We are seeing an explosion of new applications across industries taking advantage of the design freedom, superior economics, speed, and industrial-grade quality unlocked by HP and its partners,” said Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc. As we continue to expand our plastics and metals portfolio across both prototyping and production, and build out our community of global partners, we are helping customers save money, accelerate time to market, and improve sustainability as they progress on their digital manufacturing journey.”

Fast Radius is a provider of comprehensive additive manufacturing solutions – from application discovery, to product design and testing, to industrial-grade production and global fulfilment. The company was recently named one of the 16 most innovative factories in the world by the World Economic Forum. Fast Radius houses the most advanced 3D printing technologies in this factory, including HP Multi Jet Fusion.

 “The benefits of the HP Multi Jet Fusion-enabled production service offered by Fast Radius provides customers with enormous application design, production, and supply chain benefits,” said Lou Rassey, CEO, Fast Radius. From reduced warehousing and obsolescence, and a lower carbon footprint, our collaboration with HP is truly bringing out the real value of additive manufacturing for businesses around the world.” 

HP works closely with automotive industry leaders who are adopting 3D printing technology, such as BMW and Volkswagen.   HP’s 3D printers are now expanding to the automotive industry’s US-based supplier network in the greater Detroit area.

HP also recently expanded its 3D printing portfolio with the new Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3D printers, a lower-cost solution that complements HP’s industrial-grade systems, enabling customers to go from prototyping to production on the same underlying technology. 

HP has announced that the new Jet Fusion 500/300 series is shipping in volume and includes new customers such as: Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA); Unlimited Tomorrow; and Clemson University.
