HP Launches Industrial Grade 3D Printer

To get a sense of just how serious HP (www8.hp.com/us/en/printers/3d-printers.html) is about actually doing high-volume manufacturing with its new Jet Fusion 5200 3D printing system, know that when introducing the unit, which literally uses what can be considered print heads that provide a building speed on a machine of up to 309 in3/hr, Ramon Pastor, general manager and global head of Plastics Solutions at HP 3D Printing & Digital Manufacturing, talks about having a machine that has “industrial level overall equipment effectiveness,” the sort of thing that one might hear regarding a machining center, and points out that because HP is a mass manufacturer it understands such things as the process capability index (Cpk), so the company has devised process control software for the 5200 Series that includes a machine-learning algorithm, which means that the printer will get closer and closer to its target value. “We are delivering a Cpk of 1.3,” Pastor says, adding, “We ask our vendors for 1.3.” There are three machines in the series, the 5200, 5210 and 5210 Pro, which is a capability walk toward more functionality and capability. “We are building a new market, a digital manufacturing market,” Pastor says, so to that end they are assiduously working with other companies, be they users (e.g., Jaguar Land Rover, whose Ben Wilson, additive manufacturing manager, said, “Our work with HP to advance our knowledge and in-house capability in 3D printing has been an important step toward production of quality parts to support current and aftermarket customers.

Racing to Additive

Rapid prototyping or 3D printing, while getting faster and more capable, as well as having more materials that are suitable for the wide array of processes, is rapid in the context of prototyping.
