HP metal jet technology for 3D Printing

Posted on Updated on



HP metal jet technology is a 3D printing technology developed by HP Inc. that allows producing metal parts using additive manufacturing. The technology was first announced in 2018 and has since gained attention for its potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry. HP metal jet technology uses a printhead to deposit layers of metal powder onto a build platform. The metal powder is then fused together using a binding agent and heated to create a solid metal part. The process is repeated layer by layer until the desired part is complete.

One of the critical advantages of HP metal jet technology is its ability to produce large quantities of metal parts quickly and cost-effectively. The technology can also produce parts with high accuracy and resolution, making it suitable for various automotive, aerospace, and medical applications. Another advantage of HP metal jet technology is that it can be used with a wide range of metals, including steel, aluminum, copper, and titanium. This makes it a versatile technology that can be used for various applications. HP metal jet technology has the potential to transform the manufacturing industry by enabling the production of complex metal parts with speed, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness.

According to HP’s press center and Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc, “More than 10 million parts produced using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology in the last year. HP Jet Fusion, 500/300 Series 3D printers for functional prototyping, are now shipping in volume with new customers such as Daimler Trucks North America. HP’s Metal Jet Production Service is now widely available, enabling customers to upload designs and produce production-grade metal parts in large quantities. We are seeing an explosion of new applications across industries taking advantage of the design freedom, superior economics, speed, and industrial-grade quality unlocked by HP and its partners. As we continue to expand our plastics and metals portfolio across both prototyping and production and build out our community of global partners, we are helping customers save money, accelerate time to market, and improve sustainability as they progress on their digital manufacturing journey.”
