HP 3D printing materials

The MDK enables companies interested in certifying their materials to quickly test 3D powder spreadability and compatibility with HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers prior to submitting the materials to HP for testing. Market leaders like DSM and Dow Chemical are among the 50+ companies actively engaged with HP’s industry-first MDK.

The Vision System Accessory works in conjunction with the MDK and facilitates the testing of new materials under development. It allows material suppliers to easily assess and quantify new material properties by automating the test coupon analysis.

“HP is leading the evolution of 3D printing from prototyping to production and SIGMADESIGN understands how important each step of the manufacturing process is in this journey. Materials are at the center of successful manufacturing, and the combination of HP’s open platform and the ability to enable voxel-level control will help expedite the digital transformation of this multi-trillion dollar market.

Many companies, both large and small, do not have the internal capabilities to execute their 3D printing vision as quickly or as broadly as they’d like. We are proud to provide world-class foundational tools such as the MDK and in-depth design expertise for organizations ready to innovate using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology right now.”

Bill Huseby, president and CEO, SIGMADESIGN

This 3,500 square-foot facility offers 3D partners a range of equipment and in-house expertise to jumpstart and accelerate materials innovation and the development of new applications. This is critical to quickening the evolution and adoption of 3D printing technologies.

“We are convening the world’s leading materials companies and empowering them to disrupt and innovate.”

1. Based on internal testing and public data for solutions on market as of April, 2016. Cost analysis based on: standard solution configuration price, supplies price, and maintenance costs recommended by manufacturer. Cost criteria: printing 1.4 full build chambers of parts per day/5 days per week over 1 year of 30 cm3 parts at 10% packing density on fast print mode using HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 material, and the powder reusability ratio recommended by manufacturer, and printing under certain build conditions and part geometries.

2. Based on using recommended packing densities, offers high reusability of surplus powder. Liters refers to the materials container size and not the actual materials volume. Materials are measured in kilograms.

3. Based on using recommended packing densities and compared to selective laser sintering (SLS) technology, offers excellent reusability without sacrificing mechanical performance. Tested according to ASTM D638, ASTM D256, ASTM D790, and ASTM D648 and using a 3D scanner for dimensional accuracy. Testing monitored using statistical process controls.

4. Testing according to ASTM D638, ASTM D256, and ASTM D648 using HDT at different loads with a 3D scanner for dimensional accuracy. Testing monitored using statistical process controls.

5. Full color parts applicable only with the HP Jet Fusion 580 Color 3D Printer.

6. TPU material expected general availability end 2019.
