HP Jet Fusion 3D Printer at the Materialise Factory – Soon To Arrive

Materialise company is back with a great news for technology lovers. We have been following Materialise for software updates and expansions since a long time. They have now news for Jet Fusion 3D fusion. The Belgium based company will now make the best use of HP technology for their 3D printing facility in Belgium. Company disclosed this at formnext when company was announcing other achievements and innovations at the 3d printersFrankfurt show in booth F28 in Hall 3.1.

We were having eyes on Multi Jet fusion 3D printer. Similarly, Materialise was keeping an eye over this. It is not hidden from any of us that Materialise want to become the leader for this machine in terms of versatility and power.

They have already been praised for their stellar facility. This will allow them to offer their customers special access to the latest 3D printer manufacturing and the new software that comes bundled along with it.

“Our initial work with HP focused on developing a Build Processor that connects HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology to our software backbone for 3D Printing,” says Fried Vancraen, CEO of Materialise.

Vancraen added that since HP Build Processor Beta is authorized, they can start working for providing premium technology to their customers. They want to make sure that users of Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite has uninterrupted access to this technology. He also said that the upcoming installation would be very essential for them. It would be very significant for them because of their customers and service. For your information, there will be an installation on HP’s Jet Fusion 3D 4200 Printer.

“3D printing is quickly evolving from prototyping into full-scale manufacturing, and HP is committed to working with industry leaders like Materialise to make the process faster and less expensive,” says Stephen Nigro, HP’s 3D printing business president. He adds that further development and innovation in this field will further push the limits of possibility in 3D printing world. This pushing of limits can be done by software and hardware companies involved in 3D printing. He also said that HP was looking for the optimum solutions from Materialise that could create 3D printing the best option in automotive, health care and customer goods’ markets.

This partnership between software development company and 3D printer manufacturing company HP is getting stronger day by day. This is indeed a good sign for 3D printing future.

3D printer prints half of the HP’s 3D printer

HP 3D PrintersHP has found out that using the 3D printed parts in their two new devices is profitable. Stephen Nigro, HP’s head of 3D printing section, has confirmed that half of the part of their 3D printers are manufactured with the help of 3D printer itself.

Many users have found it very impressing. This is the sign how effective and efficient are those HP 3D printers. But according to Stephen Negro, it is quite economical as well. He said that they took this decision by keeping manufacturing cost in their mind. Their decision was quite economical.

They prefer 3D printing when it requires the manufacturing of smaller parts. When they have to print more than 55,000 parts, HP prefers to use 3D printing technique over moulding techniques to manufacture those smaller parts.

“The reason we’re doing it is not because we can, although that certainly would be one reason. It’s because we should: it actually makes economic sense for us to print those parts; we can actually save money.” This was what Stephen Negro has to say when asked regarding the 3D printing of the parts of their 3D printers.

Even HP was quite surprised to find out how much they can utilize the 3D printing in the manufacturing of custom parts. This is quite fascinating that the 3D printers are now printing some custom parts with the help of 3D printers only.

At first, HP thought that they would be able to print five or six parts. But when analysed, we realised that they could print half of the parts by the 3D printing. This was quite an economical step.

In 2005, ReRap project was launched. In this project, the goal was to create self-replicating machines. The team creates and shares the result of the progress but in practice, this has not been successful yet.
