HP has announced the launch of its Metal Jet Production Service, enabling customers to upload designs and produce production-grade additively manufactured metal parts in large quantities. The parts are produced by HP partners GKN Powder Metallurgy and Parmatech, using HP’s Metal Jet systems.
The Metal Jet Production Service allows customers to upload their design file through the HP website. The HP team perform design compatibility checks to ensure suitability for its Metal Jet Additive Manufacturing technology. Once confirmed, the customer is connected to one of HP’s trusted third-party manufacturing partners to fulfil the order.
“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,” stated Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc.
HP will showcase its Additive Manufacturing technology at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference in Chicago, Illinois, USA, from March 31st to April 4th 2019. Tim Weber, Global Head of HP’s Metal Jet business, and representatives of GKN and Parmatech, will discuss HP’s Metal Jet technology and new applications in the presentation ‘Scaling into Mass Production with Metal 3D Printing – Technology Differentiation and Applications’ during the AMUG Diamond Session on Monday, April 1 at 4:30 pm.
