BENGALURU/DELHI: Today HP Inc. expanded its 3D printing portfolio in India with the introduction of its new Jet Fusion 300/500 series of 3D printers, the industry’s first 3D printing technology to enable manufacturers to produce engineering-grade, functional, parts in full color, black or white – – in a fraction of the time of other solutions. The Jet Fusion 300/500 series will allow small- to medium-sized product development teams and design businesses, entrepreneurs, and universities and research institutions to access HP’s industry leading Multi Jet Fusion printing technology.
The new Jet Fusion 300/500 series complements HP's existing industrial-grade Jet Fusion 4200/4210 3D solutions which deliver the lowest cost per part2 and are designed for manufacturing environments. By building out its portfolio, HP is providing users of its Multi Jet Fusion products the ability to prototype and produce new designs and applications on the same platform.
“HP is committed to transforming Asia’s $6 trillion manufacturing industry, with its diverse collection of global brands and contract manufacturers,” said Rob Mesaros, Head, 3D Printing & Digital Manufacturing, HP Asia-Pacific & Japan. “We are making the most advanced 3D printing technology accessible to the widest possible audience with the industry’s first low-cost full-color 3D platform that can produce functional parts - no matter your industry or design complexity.”
“HP believes 3D Printing has the potential to disrupt and transform the manufacturing sector. With our cutting-edge 3D Printing technology, designers and engineers can completely reimagine products, leverage new materials, escape the limitations of traditional manufacturing, and produce new products more quickly and efficiently”, said Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India.
“By expanding our portfolio with the Jet Fusion 300/500 series, we are providing users the ability to prototype and produce new designs and applications on the same platform and stay ahead with a future-ready technology for voxel control beyond color,” added Sumeer Chandra
Innovation for Small- to Medium-Sized Development Teams, Businesses and Educators
The new Jet Fusion 300/500 series of 3D printers has a compact design, enhanced workflow solution, and the world’s first integrated and automated materials delivery system allows for greater unattended operation, ease of use, and dramatically increases production efficiency and output. The Jet Fusion 300/500 series also supports the three leading color file formats (OBJ, VRML, and 3MF) enabling the world’s designers to reliably and easily produce the parts they want without the inconvenience of file conversion or data corruption.
The HP Jet Fusion 300/500 series offerings include:
· HP Jet Fusion 340/380: for customers who have smaller part-size needs or who commonly print fewer parts per build.
· HP Jet Fusion 540 (monochrome) / 580 (Color): offer a bigger build size than the 300 series for customers who have larger part-size needs or heavier production demands.
· HP Jet Fusion 540 (monochrome) and 580 (Color) will be available for INR 1 crore and INR 1.5 Crore (excluding taxes) respectively. The cost is inclusive of three-years warranty from HP Inc.
Building on HP’s Open Approach to Materials Development
The HP Jet Fusion 300/500 3D printers will launch with a new material HP High Reusability Color Boost PA12.. Parts using this material will have mechanical properties similar to the HP PA 12 material from the Jet Fusion 4200/4210 solutions. HP PA CB 12 and other HP-branded materials for the Jet Fusion 300/500 printers will be priced the same, whether monochrome or color.
