Are high running costs keeping you from adopting high-speed 3D printing technology? They shouldn’t stop you anymore!
Since the genesis of the 3D revolution, HP has led the way in the development of newer, better technology, pushing the limits of what’s possible. For HP, pushing the limits is not just about exceeding technical possibility, it’s also about making innovative products easily available at affordable costs.
"As we examined the existing 3D print market, we saw a great deal of potential but also saw major gaps in the combination of speed, quality and cost," said Stephen Nigro, Senior Vice President, Inkjet and Graphic Solutions, HP. "HP Multi Jet Fusion is designed to transform manufacturing across industries by delivering on the full potential of 3D printing with better quality, increased productivity, and break-through economics."
The HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer can deliver the finest quality product of any 3D printer at speeds of up to ten times those achieved by its competitors. Perhaps most important to HP’s consumers, it does so at around 50% of the price of its competition.
As printer owners know, the acquisition price is a fraction of the cost of maintaining and running the machine. Materials, consumables, support, and maintenance—all line items in the 3D printer’s operating budget—can eat in to the financial benefits of printer ownership.
HP changed all of that when it introduced the Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer, which boasts running costs of about half those of other printers in its class.
How did HP achieve this economic breakthrough?
HP Thermal InkJet Technology
The tech giant’s new 3D printer unifies and integrates the steps of the printing process. This integrated process reduces not only time but cost as well by minimizing energy consumption and waste. HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printers use HP’s distinctive Thermal Inkjet printhead technology, which delivers print agents across an entire work area, maximizing the machine’s efficiency. It also reduces the need for complicated, manual post-processing operations, which promotes the recyclability of build materials.
HP’s Open Platform
HP’s distinctive Open Platform is designing a future of upgraded material performance and ultimately of reduced materials cost. Today, the platform uses HP 3D High Reusability PA12, a thermoplastic material that helps enhance cost and part quality. HP leads the industry in materials reusability, meaning their products are good for the planet as well as your revenue stream.
Minimize Waste, Reduce Energy
Since HP focuses on longevity and reusability, purchasers can rest assured that HP consumables have high production output and low depreciation. HP’s products are highly recyclable, too. An HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer job that begins with 100% fresh material will end with 80% recyclable material, resulting in major savings on running costs.
HP also makes supplies, consumables, and services affordable for consumers. Fusing agents, detailing agents, cleaning kits, printheads and more come at industry-wide low prices. HP’s technical service team provides continuous support for product users, slashing their machines’ unproductive downtime.
By keeping both acquisition and running costs low, HP is making breakthrough production technology easily accessible for small and mid-size businesses.
