HP announced their participation at the TCT Show in Birmingham, UK on September 28-29. In recognition of the significance of this industry-leading event, with two hundred exhibiting companies and thousands of visitors from over 60 countries from across the globe, HP showcased for the first time in the UK, their first production-ready commercial 3D printing system.

The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionizes design, prototyping and manufacturing, and for the first time, delivers superior quality physical parts at industry-leading speeds and with cost savings compared to current 3D printing systems.

At the show HP announced its collaboration with Europac 3D, one of the UK’s leading 3D printing, scanning and inspection businesses. The appointment of Europac 3D as an HP Channel Partner in the UK means that, once they have completed the 3D Print Specialization application and requirements, they will become a HP authorised partner for the sale and servicing of the whole portfolio of HP’s 3D printing systems and accessories across the UK and the rest of the single market. Europac 3D has a proven 20 year track record in 3D scanning, digital modelling and reverse engineering as well as printing service and maintenance. The company works across all sectors including motor, medical and engineering industries as well as with film and TV production companies.

Emilio Juarez, EMEA Sales Director, HP 3D Printing Business said, “Based on HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, our new 3D prototyping and manufacturing solution will reinvent the $12 trillion manufacturing market and ignite the next industrial revolution by producing superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster and at half the cost of current 3D print systems. As a result, HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution is significantly reducing the inhibitors for adoption through significant improvements in speed, cost and reliability. The appointment of Europac 3D as our first HP channel partner in this space in the UK will ensure that our HP 3D customers receive the right level of support and get a best in class customer experience.”

John Beckett, managing director of Europac 3D comments, “These are exciting times for the 3D printing industry as HP’s technologies are set to revolutionise the marketplace by bringing higher quality and faster 3D printing services at a dramatically reduced cost which we believe will open new markets and opportunities.  We’re proud to have the chance to be in this journey with HP and look forward to supporting their ambitions here in the UK.

HP Unveils New Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer

Written by

HP (NYSE: HPQ) introduced its vision for the future of 3D printing by unveiling its new HP Multi Jet Fusion 3d printer, a revolutionary technology engineered to resolve critical gaps in the combination of speed, quality and cost, and deliver on the potential of 3D printing.

Leveraging the company's decades of leadership in the print market and advanced materials science, HP Multi Jet Fusion is designed to resolve fundamental limitations in today's 3D print systems while delivering higher productivity and quality at a lower cost.

"As we examined the existing 3D print market, we saw a great deal of potential but also saw major gaps in the combination of speed, quality and cost," said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and Graphic Solutions, HP. "HP Multi Jet Fusion is designed to transform manufacturing across industries by delivering on the full potential of 3D printing with better quality, increased productivity, and break-through economics."

Multi Jet Fusion is built on HP Thermal Inkjet technology and features a unique synchronous architecture that significantly improves the commercial viability of 3D printing and has the potential to change the way we think about manufacturing.

  • 10-Times Faster: Images entire surface areas versus one point at a time to achieve break-through functional build speeds that are at least 10 times faster than the fastest technology in market today.

  • New Levels of Quality, Strength and Durability: Proprietary multi-agent printing process utilizing HP Thermal Inkjet arrays that simultaneously apply multiple liquid agents to produce best-in-class quality that combines greater accuracy, resiliency and uniform part strength in all three axis directions.

  • Accuracy and Detail: Capable of delivering fully functional parts with more accuracy, finer details, smoother surfaces, and able to manipulate part and material properties, including form, texture, friction, strength, elasticity, electrical, thermal properties and more.

  • Achieves Break-through Economics: Unifies and integrates various steps of the 3D print process to reduce running time, cost, energy consumption and waste to significantly improve 3D printing economics.

HP is committed to developing a platform that will become an industry standard and remains focused on growing the highest potential commercial markets. While the HP 3D Print technology is available today, HP is working directly with customers under the HP Open Customer Engagement Program. Through this program, HP will continue to extend the capabilities of the HP 3D Print platform throughout development and will provide a certification process for partners to drive materials innovation. Wider distribution of the HP 3D Print system will begin in 2016.

By inviting open collaboration, HP and contributors will be able to achieve greater flexibility and versatility in 3D Print materials beyond the current use of thermoplastics, which will enable new solutions in segments such as additive manufacturing and will expand applications for engineering, architecture and consumer goods. HP will also bring its color science expertise and the full-color capabilities of traditional HP printing to 3D world in future-generation 3D Print systems.

HP held its annual global Imaging and Printing Conference and announced several new innovations, collaborations, apps and solutions for all types of users – from consumers and small to midsize businesses (SMBs), to enterprise organizations and graphic arts customers.

HP also announced that customer adoption of its cloud-enabled, web-connected print technologies has reached the mainstream, with more than 10 million printers sold to date.

“HP’s history of innovation runs deep, and we continue to leverage that legacy and build on it for future growth,” said Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president, Imaging and Printing Group, HP. “While printing in the traditional sense will continue to be integral to what we bring to the world, we are disrupting the market with leading innovations beyond the page as well.”  

Scanning of 3-D objects

Micro and small businesses need the best tools to market and operate their businesses, especially when faced with potentially rapid growth. HP’s innovations help these businesses keep pace with the speed of customers:

To capture images of 3-D objects and scan documents, the HP TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 is an affordable desktop companion that’s ideal for small businesses or home offices. It is equipped with HP TopShot Scanning, a revolutionary technology that captures six separate images of a document or 3-D object and produces one final seamless image of exceptional quality. With this technology, SMBs can quickly produce high-quality images for immediate use in printed materials or on the web.
