Ever since HP released its Multi Jet Fusion system in mid-2016, it has been busy spreading the technology to as many places as possible. Last year saw a major expansion across the Asia-Pacific region, and the company is looking ahead to a very busy 2018 with a new 3D printer and forthcoming new technologies. Now, HP is reaching into India with the announcement that it has secured two new partnerships with distributors within the country. Imaginarium and Andriotec are the latest resellers to distribute Multi Jet Fusion technology, which, nearly two years after it was first introduced, is still generating excitement throughout the 3D printing industry.
“As we continue the journey to the fourth industrial revolution, the digital transformation of manufacturing will benefit our global society and accelerate economic opportunities around the world,” said Stephen Nigro, President of 3D printing, HP Inc. “Breakthrough technologies like HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions are a catalyst for this reinvention of the $12 trillion global manufacturing sector. We are proud to help India’s manufacturing community drive toward tangible and participatory innovation, smart economic growth, and a sustainable future.”
Most of the 3D printing industry is familiar with Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology by now, but its features, including printing speeds of 10 times faster than other system, high accuracy and detail, an open materials platform and more, still impress. As certified HP 3D printing resellers, Imaginarium and Andriotec will offer their own expertise with the system to customers, and provide value added services such as enabling new applications and offering excellent response time and service quality.
“3D printing will contribute to democratizing manufacturing and disrupting the entire industry, including the $6 trillion Asia-Pacific and Japan manufacturing segment,” said Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India. “India is a strategic hub for this significant shift and we are excited to bring the cutting-edge Multi Jet Fusion technology to customers large and small across a variety of vertical markets. Propelled by Government’s initiatives like Make in India and Digital India, the Indian economy is at the cusp of a major transformation as it seeks to become a global manufacturing center. HP has been committed to creating technology that advances lives and businesses across India. With HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solution, we will be able to help drive India’s transformation and enable local businesses to accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and overall digital transformation.”
HP’s 3D printing systems are now available in Asia-Pacific, EMEA, and the Americas, with additional locations likely to come before long as the company continues its determined spread across the globe. Right now, HP has more than 90 channel partners and over 25 experience centers that show the Multi Jet Fusion system in action. Meanwhile, the company’s open materials platform is thriving, as more than 50 partners work with the program to develop and perfect new powders for the Multi Jet Fusion System. Those companies include Arkema, BASF, Dow Chemical, Dressler, DSM, Evonik, Henkel, Lehmann & Voss, Lubrizol and Sinopec Yanshan Petrochemical Company.
