Protolabs invests in HP’s advanced 3-D printing systems

Protolabs invests in HP’s advanced 3-D printing systemsProtolabs, a global leader in digital manufacturing, has expanded its additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities with two new HP Jet Fusion 5600 Series 3-D printing systems. The new investments underline the company's pioneering role in the world of AM and positions it as one of the first in the EMEA region to have access to the advanced 3-D printing technology these systems offer.

The HP Jet Fusion 5600 series systems are characterised by reliable, efficient, and scalable production – meaning Protolabs’ customers will now be able to obtain components and prototypes with more flexibility, as well as with higher quality and repeatability.

Optimised print modes, calibrations and excellently matched hardware components enable higher reproducibility of high quality components. The HP printers in this series not only guarantee the production of accurately fitting prototypes, but also robust final parts. In addition, the 3-D printers offer enhanced monitoring of the entire printing process resulting in significantly higher final product quality; the finished products have a more homogeneous surface, and the build lines are also barely visible.

Andrea Landoni, EMEA 3DP product manager at Protolabs, said: “In order to maintain our pioneering role within the industry, we have always prioritised the continual expansion of the machine park at our European 3DP Centre. This acquisition demonstrates that we are investing in our own capabilities, and underlines our commitment to providing our customers with the best possible support through outstanding quality and excellent products.”

Fabian Schuster, application engineer at HP’s personalisation and 3-D printing business, said: "To maintain our pursuit of excellence and quality while driving innovative changes in our lives, we are excited to provide Protolabs with HP’s cutting-edge 3-D printing technology. The fact that we supply the necessary technology for this will not change in the future – and neither will the fact that our customers have a partner at their side in Protolabs that knows how to combine hands-on experience and expertise with this technology.”

Protolabs and HP will be holding a joint webinar on 14 May at 1 pm (BST) to discuss Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3-D printing solutions and their applications. To register visit the website here.
