The advent of 3D printing opened infinite possibilities for the future. From biomedical engineering to automobile manufacturing, 3D printer technology is revolutionizing the way functional parts are crafted.

Thanks to HP printing, small and mid-size businesses can stay at the forefront of what’s happening in prototyping and manufacturing technology. The company launched a line of 3D printers especially designed for speed, efficiency, and quality output.

The HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer is the latest generation of technology to roll off the digital production line at HP. The result of decades of futuristic research and far-sighted innovation, this HP 3D printer is transforming how small businesses manufacture products. This new HP printer keeps the fine detail and precision customers expect from a top technology brand but with up to 10 times more speed and at around half the cost of competitive systems.

Just how fast is HP’s new 3D printer? The platform can address more than 340 million voxels per second. A voxel represents a value on a regular grid in a three-dimensional space, like a pixel in 2D printing. Each voxel contains volumetric information that will essentially bring a product to life with the desired properties.

That means the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer is manufacturing at warp speed compared to the products launched by FDM and SLS, HP’s closest competitors in the 3D market.

“Our 3D printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 million voxels per second, versus one point at a time, giving our prototyping and manufacturing partners radically faster build speeds, functional parts and breakthrough economics,” said Stephen Nigro, president of HP’s 3D printing business.

By combining precision with speed and affordability, HP printers are overcoming the most significant barriers small and mid-size manufacturing businesses face when incorporating 3D printing technology. A longstanding concern about 3D printing emerged from its early inability to churn out functional parts at both the speed and the quality the manufacturer requires.

Doing away with the warehouse and producing only customized parts when and where they’re needed sounds efficient. But unless a 3D printer can turn out those products with speed, lag is created and efficiency breaks down.

By launching the Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer, HP made it possible to deliver consistent quality at the lowest cost-per-part while maintaining a breakthrough speed that’s up to 10 times faster than its competitors. Ten times faster means 30 million drops per second across each inch of the working area. Coupled with a short cooling period, that work-speed morphed 3D printing from the stuff of science fiction into a viable alternative to conventional manufacturing methods.

Not only is the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer capable of producing quality products at high speeds, but the company also provides fast and reliable technical support. HP 3D printer users can keep their machines running at high capacity without waiting for costly repairs or technology upgrades.

By accelerating the pace of 3D print production, HP is keeping the intelligent commerce of the future at the fingertips of small business.
