Midlands 3D invests in HP MJF 3-D printer from Matsuura

Midlands 3D invests in HP MJF 3-D printer from MatsuuraStaffordshire based Midlands 3D recently announced the addition of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) industrial 3-D printing capability to the company’s extensive FDM and SLA 3-D printing print bureau service.

The new machine supplied by Leicestershire-based Matsuura Machinery Ltd, takes its total capacity to over 100 machines — while also adding a second dedicated facility.

Paul Moloney, Midlands 3D’s founder and CEO, said: “Our business has grown significantly by offering cost-effective volume FDM 3-D print manufacturing with our existing range of volume and large format machines; the addition of the HP Multi Jet Fusion printer enables us to deliver this volume capability to a greater range of customers needing strong, accurate nylon parts.

“Midlands 3D has seen growth throughout the pandemic, with an influx of customers looking for ways to remove cost from their existing operations, innovating with new Government-supported investments or simply looking to ‘bounce back’ as the economy starts to rejuvenate.

“We are regularly providing larger and larger orders for clients looking to replace tooling, components or end-use parts with 3-D printed alternatives, and the ability to now use a versatile material such as PA12 with a genuinely efficient production process, ticks even more of the boxes needed.”

Mr Moloney added that opening a new, dedicated facility for its MJF service, Midlands 3D now operates from two sites in Stone, Staffordshire. “The new facility will act as both a showcase for our additive manufacturing capabilities, but also enable customers to come and see the service in operation.”

Joe Bellis, Matsuura Machinery’s additive manufacturing sales manager, said: “We are delighted that Midlands 3D has chosen to invest in the HP MJF 5200 3-D printer after visiting our additive facility and evaluating the entire range of HP MJF 3-D printers.

“The 5200 printer enables them to scale up production and transition from FDM to MJF seamlessly. The addition of HP MJF technology complements and expands their current additive manufacturing offering, accommodating a broader range of applications, from prototypes to full production.”
