HP also announced the expansion of its innovative Open Materials Platform with new partners Dressler Group and Lubrizol, as well as three new forthcoming 3D printing materials: HP 3D High Reusability PA 11 and HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads, and the future availability of HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene.The new materials, developed at HP’s 3D Open Materials and Applications Labs, will broaden the uses and capabilities of HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and open new high-volume applications.
“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,” said Ramon Pastor, GM of Multi Jet Fusion for HP’s 3D printing business.
HP 3D High Reusability PA 11 are designed for producing low-cost, high-quality functional parts with impact resistance and ductility for prostheses, insoles, sporting goods, snap fits, living hinges and more.
HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads are ideal for producing low-cost, high-quality functional parts with dimensional stability and repeatability ideal for applications requiring high stiffness like enclosures and housings, molds, and tooling.
HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene is a durable low cost material that offers enhanced flexibility with excellent chemical resistant, lightweight, and watertight capabilities.
