HP has presented its new commercial Jet Fusion 5420W and Metal Jet 3D printing solutions at Formnext 2022, showcasing their new post-processing capabilities, expanded DMN, new materials and recycling program.
“Additive manufacturing delivers on today’s most urgent market demands including sustainable innovation, hyper-personalisation, and business resiliency,” said HP president of 3D printing Didier Deltort.
“Together, with our global network of partners and customers, we are scaling additive manufacturing to meet these needs.”
HP Jet Fusion 5400 Series has been added to the existing Jet Fusion portfolio. The first product in this series is the HP Jet Fusion5420W.
Jet Fusion 5420W should enable consistent, high-quality production of parts, and provide the benefits of HP’s manufacturing-ready Multi Jet Fusion platform, including industrial-grade reliability, low cost per part, and enhanced manufacturing predictability.
Formnext 2022 saw HP showcase applications in the manufacturing sector with John Deere, the global leader in agricultural and construction equipment, using Metal Jet technology to produce a valve for tractor fuel system. Smith and General Motors have also been using HP Jet Fusion.
HP also announced that it will collaborate with partners such as Arkema and BASF to develop materials.
AMT and HP announced a new strategic alliance that will allow customers to receive seamless, fully automated support for post-processing throughout the entire 3D printing process.
Together, the companies look to help customers more efficiently and cost-effectively ingrate and apply post-processing capabilities such as unpacking, cleaning, surface finishing, colouring, sporting and quality control, for applications produced with HP’s industrial Jet Fusion 3D printing portfolio including HP’s new Jet Fusion 5420W solution.
In addition to its partnership with AMT, HP announced it is collaborating across the post-processing ecosystem to ensure customers have access to a broad range of alternatives from providers including AM Flow, DyeMansion, and Rösler Group AM Solutions.
HP stated that DyeMansion offers advanced post-processing options to Multi Jet Fusion customers, including surface finishing and colouring of white parts made with the Jet Fusion 5420W Solution.
