HP boosts 3D printing usage with 10m parts made in the last year
More than 10 million parts have been produced using Multi Jet Fusion technology, HP’s additive manufacturing solution, in the last year.
Now at one of the world’s largest 3D printing user events – the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference – HP will showcase new customers, applications, and technology as it continues encouraging industry towards 3D production.
The company’s advanced portfolio of 3D printing technology continues to expand and is helping customers accelerate their digital manufacturing journeys.
“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 at HP. “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.”
HP is working closely with partners and customers around the world to transform the way they design, develop, produce, and distribute parts.
Fast Radius is the leading 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. They use HP Multi Jet Fusion technology to deliver innovative new 3D printed applications and final parts to a wide-array of customers including:
HP itself is one of the largest designers, manufacturers, and distributers of products in the world. HP’s award-winning Reinventing HP With Multi Jet Fusion program is leveraging its own 3D printing technology to lower costs, speed time to market, increase customer satisfaction, and improve sustainability.
Fast Radius is 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,” 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.
