HP Inc. Expands 3D-Printing Partnership with Siemens
HP Inc. announced yesterday that its expanded its 3D-printer partnership with Siemens, one of the world’s largest industrial manufacturing companies. Under the new agreement, Siemens’ additive design and manufacturing software, Siemens’ NX and Solid Edge Software, will support HP’s new full-color 3D printers, the HP Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series, which are designed for concept prototyping, as well as for short-run production for end-use products, with HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer being deployed at Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in Erlangen, Germany
The new partnership will enable users of Siemens’ NX software and Solid Edge software to design and produce full-color 3D-printed parts with HP’s Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series.
HP notes that its Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series also supports the leading color file formats, including 3MF, enabling designers to produce the color parts they want with a reliable workflow. Those using NX and Solid Edge for HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology will have access to 3MF files ready for HP’s entire portolio of printers, including the industrial-grade HP Jet Fusion 4200/4210 and 300/500 solutions.
Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO of Siemens PLM Software, commented: “Our users will now be able to apply the power and flexibility of Siemens’ NX and Solid Edge product design software to HP’s groundbreaking 3D-printing technology, opening a world of new design possibilities with the availability of full-color parts. We share HP’s vision that 3D printing is empowering companies to reinvent their product lifecycles to prosper and thrive in manufacturing’s all-digital future. Expanding our partnership with HP allows us to continue to elevate additive manufacturing for end-use parts at industrial scale.”
With the Siemens software availability, HP says customers will now have the ability to quickly and economically prototype and produce new designs and end-part applications with advanced voxel capabilities. The collaboration is also said to create new opportunities to accelerate the adoption of 3D printing at an industrial scale for customers and partners that participate in Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Network.
Stephen Nigro, president of 3D Printing at HP Inc., commented: “Adding the full-color capabilities of HP’s expanded Multi Jet Fusion platform to Siemens’ market-leading design and manufacturing solutions creates an immense new set of possibilities for products and applications. It is exciting to deliver the power of our technologies to customers large and small, fundamentally changing the 3D printing end-to-end process, from design to prototyping and ultimately manufacturing. This is another pivotal step not just for our companies, but for the entire global manufacturing ecosystem, as together with Siemens we change the way the world designs and manufactures.”
Multi Jet Fusion 3D Technology Showcased in Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Experience Center
HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology will also be showcased as a foundational 3D printing platform in Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in Erlangen, Germany, where customers can discover the latest additive, 3D-printing manufacturing technologies and their applications first-hand in a design and manufacturing showroom.
