ST LOUIS, MO: April 09, 2018. HP says industrial-scale 3D printing is growing with repeat orders for its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer from component manufacturing customers as well as demand from its own-use production plants worldwide.

HP 3D printing“HP delivers nearly 100 million products annually through a sophisticated network of HP factories, OEMs and logistics providers across more than 170 countries,” commented Stuart Pann, HP’s chief Supply Chain Officer.

The company says 3D printing benefits include reduced warehousing and transportation due to on-demand production; reduced scrap as a result of better supply/demand control; reduced material consumption and increased material recyclability; and reduced fuel consumption of the end product in auto and aerospace industries as a result of lightweight 3D design.

Pann said HP’s 3D program brings together product design, engineering, procurement, supply chain operations and manufacturing to make “breakthroughs in cost, productivity, quality, and performance as we digitally reinvent our product lifecycle and supply chain”.

The company is using Multi Jet Fusion across its Print, Personal Systems and 3D Printing business units and claims it is producing the largest number of 3D components in any finished product worldwide.

“We are seeing an increase in high-volume 3D production as the industry accelerates its journey towards a digital future,” said Stephen Nigro, HP’s president of 3D Printing. “In the last year alone more than three million parts were produced on Multi Jet Fusion and more than 50 percent are for end use. HP is also leveraging our own technology to transform our product development lifecycle to help lower costs, speed time to market, increase customer satisfaction, and improve sustainability across our business,” he added.
