Together, multinational IT company, HP, and chemicals company, BASF, have developed a new HP 3D high reusability PolyPropylene (PP) that aims to strengthen production within the medical sector.
HP claims it has the same properties as existing PPs used in injection molding, and is ideal for piping, fluid systems, and containers. The PP material is reportedly durable enough to create cost effective production parts via its additive manufacturing systems, and the material has been developed for HP’s Jet Fusion 5200 3D Series of systems. In order to increase the reach of its PP material, HP has forged partnerships with multiple companies. This includes Oechsler, Extol, GKN Powder Metallurgy/Forecast 3D, Henkel, and Prototal. Ramon Pastor, interim president of 3D printing and digital manufacturing at HP, said: “The response to the Covid-19 crisis is a watershed moment for the industry. HP and its partners have 3D printed more than 2.3 million […]
