HP delivers world's first production-ready 3D printing system
HP Inc. unveiled the world's 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 up to 10 times faster and at approx. half the cost of current 3D print systems. By printing functional parts for the first time at the individual voxel level, HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization. Designed for model shops and 3D print service bureaus, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution family contains two new 3D printers: the HP Jet Fusion 3D 3200 Printer is ideal for prototyping, offering improved productivity and the capacity to grow usage at a lower cost per part; while 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. A synchronized set of tools includes intuitive software, an innovative HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station with Fast Cooling, and high-quality materials. HP is also creating the 3D material app store and is already collaborating with such certified partners as Arkema, BASF, Evonik and Lehmann & Voss, with plans to expand the open platform ecosystem over time. HP is taking orders now at www.hp.com/go/3Dcontactus. The HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 Printer will be delivered in late 2016, with the HP Jet Fusion 3D 3200 Printer following in 2017. Pricing for the 3200 model starts at 130,000 US. Pricing for the full end-to-end solution (HP Jet Fusion 3D 3200 Printer and Processing Station) starts at 155,000 US. [source]
