International info know-how firm HP has right now launched a brand new line of Jet Fusion 3D printers. Named the 5200 collection, HP’s newest machines goal quantity manufacturing, with accuracy and repeatability likened to injection molding.
One piece of a four-part announcement, the corporate additionally launched a brand new versatile TPU for Jet Fusion, confirmed new industrial alliances, and launched its Digital Manufacturing Community.
In a briefing on the announcement Ramon Pastor, Vice President and Common Supervisor of HP, advised press, “The HP Jet Fusion 5200 Sequence unlocks manufacturing alternatives to maneuver them into digital, because of its manufacturing predictability, breakthrough economics, and the enablement of latest functions.”

In his presentation on the brand new 3D printer, Pastor defined that the brand new 5200 collection is a part of a pure development on the firm. The 500/300 collection focused practical prototyping and the 4200, is aimed toward brief runs and manufacturing.
The brand new 5200 collection is HP’s 3D printer for quantity manufacturing. Quantity manufacturing as outlined by HP is manufacturing runs within the hundreds of elements. Relying on dimension and complexity, this quantity can attain tens of hundreds and even a whole lot of hundreds of elements.
The primary driver of this productiveness, in keeping with Pastor, is the upgraded energy of lamps inside 5200 3D printers. “The ability of the lamps now’s considerably greater,” he provides, “which allows us [to do more with] one go [of the printhead] and on the similar time allow us sooner or later to fuse supplies with a lot greater temperature.” The collection has additionally been launched alongside a cooling unit, which mechanically removes a completed print mattress and replaces it with a contemporary one to reduce downtime.

To date the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Sequence includes three machines: the 5200, 5210 and 5210 Professional. Although all made for a similar function, every system on this collection has incremental variations in the case of operating prices and the quantity required by the client. On this respect, the 5200 has a threshold of round 800 elements per week the place it is going to develop into extra economical to improve to the 5210. Every machine has sure under-the-hood enhancements too that may warrant further funding. Examples within the 5210 embrace higher scanner calibration for the print mattress, and its means to work with a wider vary of supplies.
The digital facet of the brand new 5200 collection is bolstered by three new software program releases: HP 3D Course of Management, HP 3D Middle and the HP 3D Elements Evaluation Service.
Obtainable to order from right now, the 5200 collection has already been examined by a number of early entry companions. Companions embrace main automotive maker Jaguar Land Rover, Canadian helmet producer Kupol, American 3D printing service bureau Sculpteo, and Belgium’s Materialise, which has additionally fashioned a brand new alliance with HP.

New industrial alliances for HP 3D printing
HP’s new “industrial alliances” introduced right now are with Siemens, BASF and Materialise.
With Siemens, the corporate is creating a joint resolution for making use of additive manufacturing in industrial and automotive environments. The software program department of Siemens may even be serving to HP with digital manufacturing unit improvement. Klau Helmrich, CEO of Siemens Digital Industries, feedback, “Siemens and HP are pondering forward to the longer term and are bringing collectively one of the best from each corporations in a whole, industry-specific resolution that can speed up the adoption of commercial additive manufacturing […]” The aim of the collaboration, Helmrich states, is to assist prospects “improve flexibility, effectivity, and velocity of digital manufacturing.”
With BASF, HP has been creating new application-driven supplies for Jet Fusion know-how. Specializing in the newly launched ULTRASINT TPU, the primary materials of extra but to come back for Jet Fusion, the companions have shared three new case research with early entry prospects of the 5200 collection. The primary, for Danish wind turbine producer Vestas, is a 3D printed clamp which offers heightened affect absorption, in addition to scratch resistance. The second, is a sports activities helmet for Kupol, which has helped the corporate obtain improved shock absorption, breathability and lightness within the completed object. The third, is a wheel cowl for HP’s personal textile printers.

With Materialise, HP can be integrating the 5200 collection inside the Belgian firm’s Construct Processor and Magics 3D Print Suite. As an preliminary accomplice of the brand new HP Digital Manufacturing Community, Materialise may even be utilizing Jet Fusion machines to ship 3D printed elements to the European market.
“The market is clearly embracing 3D printing for manufacturing and, as a long-standing HP accomplice, we’re proud to develop our collaboration to new areas,” feedback Fried Vancraen, Founder and CEO of Materialise. “Our prospects are excited by our tighter integration with HP, our joint work on new functions and supplies, and our dedication to scale high-quality half manufacturing.”
The HP Digital Manufacturing Community
Within the ultimate announcement from right now, the HP Digital Manufacturing Community based with members together with Forecast 3D, GKN Powder Metallurgy, GoProto, Jabil, Materialise, Parmatech, and ZiggZagg NV. As members, these corporations have been certified by HP to supply 3D printed elements utilizing Jet Fusion and/or Metallic Jet know-how.
Extra companions are anticipated to affix this community within the coming months. Presently nonetheless, the HP Digital Manufacturing Community covers the US, Asia, and Europe.
