HP Accelerates Path to Industrial 3D Manufacturing with New Jet Fusion 3D 4210 Printing Solution and Expanded Materials Portfolio
- New HP 3D printing solution unlocks economies of scale for industrial 3D manufacturing, raising the “break-even point” of large-scale 3D production to up to 110K parts and enabling industry’s lowest cost-per-part (CPP), up to 65% less than other methods.
- New 3D materials PA 11, PA 12 Glass Beads, and Polypropylene (PP) coming to HP’s Open Materials Platform.
- New partners Dressler Group and Lubrizol join HP’s 3D materials ecosystem.
- DSM and Dow Chemical acquire HP Materials Development Kit (MDK); existing partners Evonik and Henkel accelerate customized applications development with Multi Jet Fusion installations.
HP Expands Open 3D Material Platform with New Materials and Ecosystem Members:
HP’s unique open platform model for 3D printing helps expand the availability of new materials, increase innovation, and address a broader set of applications. HP 3D materials boast the industry’s leading reusability, and are for use with all HP Jet Fusion printing solutions. HP announced today the forthcoming availability of HP 3D High Reusability PA 11 and HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads, as well as the future availability of HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene:
- HP 3D High Reusability PA 11: for producing low-cost, high-quality functional parts with impact resistance and ductility for prostheses, insoles, sporting goods, snap fits, living hinges, and more.
- HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads: for producing low-cost, high-quality functional parts with dimensional stability and repeatability ideal for applications requiring high stiffness like enclosures and housings, molds, and tooling.
- HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene: Durable low cost material that offers enhanced flexibility with excellent chemical resistant, lightweight, and watertight capabilities.
“We were among the earliest adopters of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion, and it has never been more clear to us that it represents the future of digital manufacturing,” said Corey Weber, Co-Founder of Forecast 3D. “HP’s PA 11 is an incredibly versatile, easy-to process, highly-reusable new material that expands the applications and effectiveness of 3D printing to places that were previously not possible.”
