Australian business brings new HP 3D printing technology to local market
Privately owned Australian business evok3d has been announced as the sole authorised provider of HP’s new production-ready 3D printing system. Hewlett Packard claims that its Jet Fusion 3D printing solution will deliver superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster, and at half the cost of other current 3D printing technologies available on the market.
evok3d’s nomination as sole distributor for the new printing technology is a significant win for the Melbourne-based business. The fast-growing company, now in its fourth year of operation, provides the market with the broadest range of 3D printing technologies across the Oceania region.
Developed in conjunction with industry partners including Nike, BMW and Siemens, the HP printer has the ability to address more than 340 million voxels per second, versus one point at a time, enabling radically faster build speeds, functional parts and cost savings.
evok3d Managing Director Joe Carmody said the new HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution will ensure a combination of speed, quality and production savings never seen in the industry. “Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers,” he said.
The advantages of this cost-effective printing solution, and the ability for it to create en-masse customised parts, has the potential to transform a range of industries including orthotics, prosthetics, auto parts and motorsport, biomedical, movie and stage props, defence and aerospace.
Global brands BMW and Nike have expressed early excitement in the new printing technology and the opportunities the HP Jet Fusion 3D printer will provide through cost-effective serial part production and personal customisation.
