HP to launch metal Additive Manufacturing platform in 2018

October 16, 2017

Following HP’s move into Additive Manufacturing with its high-speed polymer Jet Fusion 3D Printing systems, the company has announced plans to launch a new metal Additive Manufacturing platform in 2018.

Speaking at the HP Securities Analyst Meeting in Palo Alto, California, USA, on October 12, Stephen Nigro, HP’s President of 3D Printing, announced the development of a novel metal AM approach which he called “a major step for HP 3D printing aspiration.”

The company hopes that the release of this new platform will “transform 3D metal printing into more mainstream, high-volume production.” Further details of HP’s metal AM technology were not disclosed during the presentation, with Nigro stating that HP will make a formal announcement in 2018.
