HP expands 3D printing portfolio: New features for metal and polymer systems

HP has unveiled several innovations for its 3D printing systems at the RAPID + TCT show. The announcements include improvements in both the metal and polymer areas and are aimed at increasing the performance and flexibility of additive manufacturing.

For the Metal Jet S100 system, the build volume has been increased from 430 x 309 x 140 mm to 430 x 309 x 170 mm. This enables the production of larger parts and increases production capacity. HP is also introducing new materials in collaboration with Indo-MIM and Sandvik. IndoMIM M2 tool steel is suitable for high-strength mold inserts and cutting tools, while Sandvik’s Osprey 316L offers improved corrosion resistance for medical, automotive and industrial applications.

To facilitate entry into metal printing, HP is launching the Metal Jet Production Service. Customers can make inquiries, request sample parts and use production services. A new Metal Jet Adoption Center in Corvallis, Oregon, supports this service with comprehensive application qualifications.

In the software sector, HP is cooperating with Autodesk, Altair and CoreTechnologie. These partnerships improve the integration of design and production, provide material data for optimized component design and expand the possibilities for surface design.

HP is introducing new materials and features for the Jet Fusion 5600 Series polymer 3D printing systems. HP 3D HR PA12 S and BASF Ultrasint TPU01 are now available and promise cost savings through improved material efficiency. A new ESD print mode enables the production of parts with electrostatic dissipative properties without additional hardware.

HP is also expanding the material compatibility of the Jet Fusion 5000 3D printer to increase its versatility. In addition, downtime between successive prints has been reduced, resulting in cost savings, especially in high-volume production environments.
