To broaden the range of final-parts applications for customers using the new Jet Fusion 5200 Series equipment, HP also released a new approved thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), ULTRASINTTM created by BASF. In addition to HP High Reusability[i] PA-12, PA-12 Glass Beads, and PA-11 materials, more are on the way, the new TPU is perfect for flexible and elastic parts.
The new Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution is being investigated by a wide range of businesses, including Avid Product Development, BASF, Jaguar Land Rover, Kupol, Materialise, Sculpteo, Prodartis, and Vestas, in the automotive, industrial, consumer goods, and manufacturing sectors.
To offer exceptional client experiences, Jaguar Land Rover is committed to using cutting-edge technology and innovation. According to Ben Wilson, Additive Manufacturing Manager at Jaguar Land Rover, the transition to an autonomous, connected, electric, and shared future as well as the trip to Industry 4.0 are crucial to our future strategy. Our collaboration with HP has advanced our understanding of and internal capacity for 3D printing, which has been a crucial step toward producing high-quality components to serve both our current and aftermarket customers. We will better understand opportunities to open up new application areas as a result of the continuation of this collaboration through the early use of the new HP Jet Fusion 5200 3D printing platform, which will also support research to improve the productivity, efficiency, and reliability of the technology.
According to Jeremy D. Haight, Senior Principal Engineer of Emerging Technologies, Vestas VBIC, "Vestas is looking to innovators like HP to assist us speed innovative product development for a more sustainable future. New 3D printing materials and technological advances "are a huge step toward opening up new design possibilities, optimizing our manufacturing, and enhancing environmental sustainability.
HP Deepens Industrial Alliances to Drive the Future of Digital Manufacturing
In order to deliver an end-to-end additive manufacturing solution integrating HP's 3D printing and data intelligence platform, including the new HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D solution, with Siemens' Digital Enterprise software portfolio, HP and Siemens, a leader in automation and digitalization, are expanding their alliance. In order to increase the market, assist customers in developing original product designs, hasten the delivery of high-quality 3D parts to clients, and establish digital production environments that fully utilize additive manufacturing, HP and Siemens have joined forces.
We are eager to expand our partnership with HP. The digital transformation of businesses across industries depends on cutting-edge collaborations and technology like additive manufacturing. According to Klaus Helmrich, CEO of Siemens Digital Industries and a member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, "Siemens and HP are looking to the future and are combining the best from both companies in a complete, industry-specific solution that will accelerate the adoption of industrial additive manufacturing and help our customers to increase flexibility, efficiency, and speed of digital manufacturing."
