h4When HP announced that they would be entering the 3D printing industry with their new Multi Jet Fusion technology, the market leaders such as Stratasys and 3D Systems certainly took note. A company with the budget of HP’s, entering a market which they can leverage patents related to their already incredibly successful 2D printing technology is without a doubt big news.

How could this news get any bigger? How about another multi-billion dollar company teaming up with them to provide the silicon architecture of their forthcoming 3D printers? Well that’s just what was announced today at the 2015 International CES in Las Vegas, where Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing & Personal Systems (PPS) at HP joined Brian Krzanich, Chief Executive Officer of Intel, on stage.h2

Here, the two men, leaders within their respected industries, announced that they would be working closely together on a collaboration to put Intel’s Core i7 processors in HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers which are expected to launch sometime next year.

“HP Multi Jet Fusion is uniquely designed to resolve fundamental limitations in today’s 3D printing technologies with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing,” said Weisler. “In order for 3D printing to reach its full potential, we not only need the most powerful processors, but a technology partner with a shared vision for the industry.”

While still over a year away, HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology promises speeds ten times faster than the machines on the market today. The Core i7 processors, however, will play an integral part in HP’s Open Customer Collaboration Program throughout 2015, as the company tests the technology and prepares for next year’s launch.

“Our companies share a long history of innovation and a vision to deliver innovative 3D computing experiences that transform the way people interact with and use technology for work and play,” said Krzanich. “The combination of Intel architecture with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology will help to accelerate not only the speed of 3D printing but the availability of the technology to consumers and enterprises alike.”

Their’s no doubt that having an ‘Intel Inside’ sticker on these forthcoming machines will instantly provide an additional sense of quality to businesses considering purchasing a large-scale manufacturing-grade 3D printer.  HP’s partnership with Intel is not new. In fact, several facets of HP’s new Blended Reality ecosystem rely heavily on Intel’s Core i7 processors.

It will be interesting to watch and see how this partnership develops as well as what other companies, if any, within the industry may eventually turn to Intel to power their machines.  Let’s hear your thoughts on this news in the HP/Intel forum thread on 3DPB.com.
