HP launches full colour capable 3D printers

By 09 Feb 2018

One month after the launch of its Jet Fusion series of 3D printers, HP has now introduced Jet Fusion 300/ 500 series of 3D printers, which enables additive manufacturing in full colour, black or white to produce engineering-grade functional parts. The machine also offers voxel control, which the company claims, is faster than any other such solutions in the market. Voxel is 3D pixel used by 3D printers to make objects.

Depending on configuration and colour preference, the Jet Fusion 300/ 500 series is said to be available from a starting range of USD 50,000 (approximately Rs 32 lakh). HP said it will target small- and medium-sized product development teams and design businesses, entrepreneurs, and universities and research institutions.

“HP is committed to democratising 3D design and manufacturing, unleashing new possibilities for millions of innovators around the world,” said Stephen Nigro, president of 3D Printing, HP.

“No matter your industry, no matter your design complexity, no matter what colours fit your business needs — black, white, or the full colour spectrum — the new HP Jet Fusion 300/ 500 series gives you the freedom to create brilliant new parts liberated from the constraints of traditional production methods,” he added.

The company expects the growing innovation in 3D printing to drive the fourth industrial revolution.

According to an HP release, leveraging the company’s unique open platform for materials and applications development, it will work with its growing materials ecosystem to grow the material breadth and drive costs down.

HP also unveiled a new collaboration with Dassault Systemes to optimise the latter’s industry-leading Solidworks 3D design and engineering applications to take advantage of the unique voxel-level capabilities of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions.
