After a six-month project, the lab was completed on March 1, 2019. "With the completion of this 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Lab, TPM can now provide hands-on tours of industry leading thermoplastic, composite and metal 3D printing technologies," said Matt Luther, TPM's Director of 3D Printing.
True to its mantra to "Never stop learning," TPM designed the lab to educate others in the industry about the rapidly evolving 3D printing landscape and prepare them to integrate this technology into their business operations. "This lab will help our customers in the Southeast explore the ways in which additive manufacturing and 3D printing can impact their business like never before," Luther said.
The lab houses the latest HP Multi-Jet Fusion product offering as well as MarkForged MetalX and composite printers in a highly accessible location that is convenient to the Charlotte International Airport, and provides easy access to customers across the Southeast.

About TPM, Inc.
TPM, Inc. is headquartered in Greenville, SC with offices in Columbia, SC, Charleston, SC, Charlotte, NC, Raleigh-Durham, NC, and Alpharetta, GA. TPM is the Southeast's leading provider of 2D and 3D design technology alongside partners that include Autodesk, SOLIDWORKS, HP, MarkForged, Canon, Oce, and many more. TPM serves more than 3,500 customers each year with technology solutions, training, consulting, and implementation services.
Last year, Markforged launched the Mark X, an industrial 3D printer that provides the strongest engineering-grade parts available in the industry at a price point of $69,000 USD. With high demand for Markforged industrial printers, we have just expanded the Mark X into a portfolio of three printers. Now, manufacturers of all sizes will have access to industrial-strength 3D printing and avoid dealing with long lead times associated with traditional machining or the need to outsource printed parts. This printer series builds out the Markforged portfolio with the introduction of the X3 and X5 at lower entry price points, and renames the Mark X to the X7 - providing a full range of industrial solutions:
The new wave of manufacturing is all about speed, efficiency, and precision. HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printers are making the future possible now. The HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer operates at speeds up to ten times faster and at a cost that’s one-half of its closest competitor’s—all while producing a high-quality product designed and crafted with voxel level control.
HP’s corporate partners in this breakthrough technology include solid industry giants such as Nike, BMW, Autodesk, Jabil, Johnson & Johnson, Materialise, Proto Labs, Shapeways, and Siemens.
3D printing is on the cusp of transforming the way we manufacture products. Why are companies hesitant to embrace it?
In the past, 3D printers have not created new parts at the speed to which users were accustomed. Waiting for a 3D printer to make one functional part could grind production to a halt. Significant time had to be budgeted for post processing. The 3D printer’s customization was welcome, but its slow production time was not.
But what if 3D printers could do customization en masse? What if they could do so with unmatched precision? And at a price your business can afford?
Now all those "what ifs" are a possibility with the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer.
When HP introduced its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer in 2016, it signaled the fall of three barriers to manufacturing’s full embrace of the new 3D printing technology—speed, quality, and cost.
Early model 3D printers crafted rough parts at a slow pace, and the sky-high costs kept many consumers from making the investment in the new products no matter how futuristic they might be.
HP Thermal Inkjet Technology allows users to print at lower cost without sacrificing quality. The newest generation of HP’s 3D printers, the Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer, can craft products with voxel level control, ensuring spot-on accuracy and fine detail. It does so at up to ten times the speed of its competitors.
Using its distinctive Thermal Inkjet Technology, HP incorporates highly recyclable powder and an open platform system to reduce 3D printing costs and keep them low.
Imagine what you could create if your 3D printer had voxel level control. Think of the crisp letters, the fine details, and the dimensional accuracy you could achieve. Until now, voxel level control has been beyond the power of small and mid-size businesses to attain.
HP’s new Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer boasts 1,200 nozzles per inch, printing 30 million drops—or 340 million voxels—per second, giving it extreme dimensional quality and pinpoint accuracy.
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.
The world of prototyping and manufacturing is about to be reinvented. Advances in 3D printing are accelerating the speed with which new productivity solutions can be found for the thorniest challenges. Is your business prepared for what’s coming?
HP 3D printing has already reimagined the future of productivity and quality. They created the HP Multi Jet Fusion HP 3D Printer. It’s an easy-to-use, scalable technology designed to help you capitalize on emerging manufacturing strategies by providing state-of-the-art processes, finely honed products, and enhanced revenue streams.
HP introduced the Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer to help a cross-section of manufacturing enterprises prototype and manufacture quality products up to ten times faster than their competitors at around half the price.
TPM, Inc., the Southeast’s leading 2D and 3D design technology provider, announces that they have been selected to represent HP’s new Jet Fusion 3D Printing Technology in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. TPM will be responsible for marketing, sales, service, and support around this new groundbreaking 3D Printing technology. This new product launch from HP will revolutionize the 3D Printing Industry with the some fastest speeds and lowest cost per part in the Industry.
