HP expands its materials portfolio and presents JET Fusion 3D 4210 solution
HP Inc. has expanded its 3D printing portfolio with the announcement of the new HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210 printing solution HP
3D materials designed for industrial scale production significantly reduce overall management costs, increase production and volume capacity, and lift the balance point for 3D output. HP has announced new materials that boast the best reuse in the industry and can be used with all HP Jet Fusion printing solutions.
The new materials announced by HP are: HP 3D High Reusability PA 11, HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads, as well as HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene.
- HP 3D High Reusability PA 11: for the production of high quality and low-cost functional parts with impact resistance
- HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads: for the production of high quality and low cost functional parts with dimensional stability and repeatability
- HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene: a durable and inexpensive material that offers superior flexibility, excellent chemical resistance, lightness and water resistance.
HP has also announced new additions to its material partners
The Dressler Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of specialized industrial chemicals for crushing and refining, will provide HP with preferential access to their crushing manufacturing capabilities, which will help eliminate one of the major obstacles to the development of 3D materials. Dressler, therefore, is an HP partner selected for the development and production of powder for HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers.
Lubrizol, a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary and world leader in the production of specialty chemicals, with one of the world’s largest portfolios of TPUs (thermoplastic polyurethane), will also help him accelerate the development of innovative materials designed to produce final components with HP Jet Fusion 3D systems.
“As the world leader in specialty chemicals, we are pleased to be part of HP’s 3D materials platform and contribute to the 3D digital production revolution,” said Rick Tolin, president of Lubrizol Advanced Materials.
“The ability to access the first open 3D Open Materials and Applications Lab open laboratory and its many cutting-edge tools, combined with direct collaboration with our customers, will enable us to be at the forefront of innovation and material development in the future, as well as to further develop our Estane Engineered Polymers product line’‘.
