HP Inc. unveiled the new Jet Fusion 5200 Series industrial 3D printing solution and is expanding its alliances with BASF, Materialise, and Siemens.
The company says that the new HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution expands manufacturing predictability with optimal-yield of parts at industrial levels of efficiency, accuracy, and repeatability.
HP also introduced a new certified thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), ULTRASINT developed by BASF, to expand the breadth of final-parts applications for its customers on the new Jet Fusion 5200 Series systems. The new TPU has been designed for flexible and elastic parts and complements HP High Reusability PA-12, PA-12 Glass Beads, and PA-11 materials, with more coming in the future.
HP says numerous companies across the automotive, industrial, consumer goods, and manufacturing sectors are exploring new applications for the new Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution, including Avid Product Development, BASF, Jaguar Land Rover, Kupol, Materialise, Sculpteo, Prodartis, and Vestas.
The new Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution is available today.
HP also unveiled expanded alliances with a number of industrial leaders to help customers on their journey to digital manufacturing.
Siemens and HP are expanding their alliance to deliver an end-to-end additive manufacturing solution integrating HP’s 3D printing and data intelligence platform, including the new HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D solution, with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise software portfolio.
BASF and HP will also partner to grow the market and help customers design and develop new applications with this combination of materials science and 3D printing capabilities. Already, BASF and HP are already working with Vestas, the world’s largest provider of wind turbines, and Sculpteo, a provider of 3D design and production services, on new applications produced with BASF’s ULTRASINT TPU on HP Jet Fusion 3D printing systems.
HP also introduced the new HP Digital Manufacturing Network, a global community of HP production partners to help design, produce, and deliver both plastic and metal parts at scale leveraging HP 3D printing solutions.
The HP Digital Manufacturing Network initially includes partners in the United States, Asia, and Europe. Digital Manufacturing Network production partners who have met HP’s program qualifications include Forecast 3D, GKN Powder Metallurgy, GoProto, Jabil, Materialise, Parmatech, and ZiggZagg NV.
