“The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution delivers a combination of speed, quality, and cost never seen in the industry. Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers.” –Stephen Nigro, president of HP’s 3D printing business.
HP Inc. unveiled the world’s first production-ready commercial 3D printing system, sparking a reinvention in design, prototyping and manufacturing. The first commercial 3D printing solution based on an open platform, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution will create the highest quality physical parts, produce parts up to 10 times faster, and at half the cost of current 3D print systems.
Unveiled at RAPID, the largest 3D additive manufacturing conference, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing solution leverages HP’s decades of research and expertise in precision mechanics, microfluidics and materials sciences. By printing functional parts for the first time at the individual voxel level (a voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing), HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization.
Comments from Chris Connery, VP of global analysis at analyst firm CONTEXT :
“HP’s first 3D printer announcement is just the first in its entrance into the realm with the most impact still yet to come. HP’s reach is wide and deep and their entrance into the 3D Printing Market helps to validate the category for many companies which might have previously only tangentially followed the technology. The key question for the industry is whether HP will simply cannibalize exiting sales from other industry participants or if it will help to expand the market; while questions may still exist about the ability of the technology alone to push the market forward, the fact that a brand as powerful as HP has entered with its own technology is powerful enough to move the needle.”
Comments from Eric Savant, CEO at iMakr :
“I’m delighted to see HP entering the 3D Printing market. I’m sure more big names will follow. I truly believe that innovation is required to help growing further the market. Hopefully HP will be part of the innovation, as are the smaller start-ups. Good luck!”
