The HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 Printer is designed for prototyping and short-run manufacturing needs, with high productivity to meet same-day demands at the lowest cost per part. Several HP co- development partners including Jabil, Materialise and Shapeways, will receive the first installations of the HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 Printer in the coming weeks.

“Six months ago we unveiled the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, as well as a list of visionary companies looking to join HP on the journey toward the next industrial revolution,” said Ramon Pastor, Vice President and General Manager, HP 3D Multi Jet Fusion business. “As installations of the products begin to ramp up, we expect our co-development partners to unveil game changing parts and innovative materials with unprecedented quality and cost savings.”

Materials innovation

Along with product installations, HP materials innovation is underway with new partners such as BASF announcing commitment to the HP Open Materials program, and Evonik Industries, a world leader in specialty chemicals based in Germany, introducing the first certified plastic material to emerge from the HP Open Platform. Its new PA-12 VESTOSINT powder will be available for HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution customers. In addition, Arkema, a leading specialty chemicals and advanced materials company based in France, honored HP with its Breakthrough and Visionary Innovation Award.

HP is initially working with three German resellers to prepare the German marketplace for the HP Jet Fusion 3D products, specifically

  •   3D Experts, an established 3D reseller specialized in prototyping and rapid manufacturing
  •   Kaut Bullinger, specialized reseller for office technology, engineering and imaging
  •   Solidpro, one of the leading 3D CAD/CAM resellers in German speaking countries

Once these companies, and other German resellers expected to work with HP, complete the HP 3D Print Specialization Application and requirements, they become an HP authorized partner. Authorized partners will sell and service the enitre portfolio of HP’s 3D printing solutions and accessories across Germany.

Based on internal testing and simulation, HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution average printing time is up to 10x faster than FDM & SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD on market as of April 2016. Testing variables: Part Quantity -1 full bucket of parts from HP Jet Fusion 3D at 20% of packing density vs same number of parts on above-mentioned competitive devices; Part size: 30g; Layer thickness: 0.1mm/0.004 inches. Fast Cooling is enabled by HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station with Fast Cooling, available in 2017. HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station with Fast Cooling accelerates parts cooling time vs recommended manufacturer time of SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD, as tested in April 2016. FDM not applicable. Continuous printing requires an additional HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Unit (standard printer configuration includes one HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Unit).

Based on internal testing and public data, HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution average printing cost-per-part is half the cost of comparable FDM & SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD on market as of April 2016. Cost analysis based on: standard solution configuration price, supplies price, and maintenance costs recommended by manufacturer. Cost criteria: printing 1-2 buckets per day/ 5 days per week over 1 year of 30 grams parts at 10% packing density using the powder reusability ratio recommended by manufacturer.
