3Ders reports on yet another expansion by software giant HP. HP has just announced “its newest 3D printing solution: the Jet Fusion 3D 4210, a system upgrade aimed at industrial-scale 3D manufacturing, alongside an expanded materials portfolio.”
The Jet Fusion 3D 4210’s biggest selling point is its cost efficiency. “By raising the industry’s ‘break-even point’ for large-scale 3D printing up to 110,000 parts, the Jet Fusion 3D 4210 significantly lowers overall operating costs while vastly increasing production volume.”
As General Manager of Multi Jet Fusion for HP’s 3D Printing business Ramon Pastor explains: “the new 3D 4210 Printing Solution enables our customers to mass-produce parts using HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Technology for 65% less than other processes, and fully benefit from the economies of scale. HP’s Jet Fusion 3D systems have now reached a technological and economic inflection point that combines the speed, quality, and scalability needed to accelerate manufacturing’s digital industrial revolution.”
Beyond the announcement of their new 3D printer, HP also announced the expansion of its “material platform, featuring three new 3D printing materials.” These materials include 3D High Reusability PA II, “aimed at producing low-cost, high-quality functional parts such as prosthetics, insoles, sports equipment, snap fits, and living hinges,” PA 12 (for glass parts), and Polypropylene, “a durable, inexpensive material offering enhanced flexibility and excellent chemical resistance.”
Preorders for HP’s Jet Fusion 3D 4210 3D Printer will be announced soon.
