At the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference, HP is showcasing new customers, applications and technology.
“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,” says Christoph Schell, president of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc.
HP is working closely with partners and customers around the world to assist in how they design, develop, produce and distribute parts. Fast Radius provides additive manufacturing solutions—from application discovery, to product design and testing, to industrial-grade production and global fulfillment. Fast Radius houses advanced 3D printing technologies in its factory, including HP Multi Jet Fusion. They use HP Multi Jet Fusion technology to deliver 3D-printed applications and final parts to customers including: Husqvarna Group, a Swedish manufacturer of outdoor power products; Yanfeng Global Automotive Interiors; and U.S. Marine Corps, an elite branch of the US armed forces. Fast Radius is also using HP Jet Fusion 3D printers to produce final parts for HP’s Print, Personal Systems and 3D Printing products.
“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,” says 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 companies who are adopting 3D printing technology, such as BMW and Volkswagen. HP’s 3D printers are now expanding to the automotive industry’s U.S.-based suppliers network in the greater Detroit area with new customers such as: Advantage Engineering Inc., which believes in virtually limitless manufacturability; and Linear AMS, a manufacturing service provider for the production of injection molded and 3D-printed plastic and metal parts for the automotive, consumer products and industrial sectors.
New HP Jet Fusion 500/300 Series Now Shipping
HP 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. Today HP announced that the new Jet Fusion 500/300 series is shipping in volume and includes new customers such as: Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), a commercial vehicle manufacturer; Unlimited Tomorrow, which is using HP Jet Fusion 580 printers to provide amputees with custom-made 3D-printed prosthetics; and Clemson University, which is reinventing how it prototypes and produces functional parts using the HP Jet Fusion 500/300 series to advance departments such as the Clemson College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.
HP Metal Jet Production Service Now Widely Available
HP announces that the HP Metal Jet Production Service for the 3D printing of industrial-grade metal parts is now widely available. Customers can now upload 3D design files and receive functional metal parts in large quantities. Parts are produced by HP partners GKN Powder Metallurgy and Parmatech to ensure the highest standards of engineering and production quality.
