“This collaboration equips customers using HP’s commercial S100 Metal Jet Solution with advanced sintering capabilities, opening up new horizons in 3D printing for industries worldwide,” stated Ramon Pastor, Global Head of 3D Metals at HP.
Elnik Systems has modified its standard Metal Injection Moulding furnace to meet the needs of Binder Jetting Additive Manufacturing. The partnership is expected to enhance the capabilities of HP’s S100 Metal Jet Binder Jetting machine by leveraging the vast sintering expertise and capabilities offered though Elnik’s many years supplying the Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) industry.
As part of the collaborative effort, DSH Technologies is also committed to sharing its technical processing knowledge and expertise. This, it was stated, will help part producers with a go-to-market strategy, based on technical awareness and production scale capabilities.
“Working together with the HP team has been amazing,” added Stefan Joens, president of Elnik Systems. “The mutual interest to see the metal 3D printing technology advance through team-effort discussion, innovation, and desire is what will help this manufacturing technology become a fully capable processing method of the future.”
