HP Inc., and Siemens announced that they are strengthening their strategic alliance further to help customers transform their businesses with industrial additive manufacturing (AM). The companies announced the expanded alliance at an event to celebrate the addition of a new Polymer Competency Center to the Siemens Additive Manufacturing Experience Center (AMEC) in Erlangen, Germany, where HP also unveiled its new industrial-performance HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution.
As a part of the alliance HP, the leader in industrial 3D printing and Siemens, an innovation leader in automation and digitalization will expand their integrated additive manufacturing solution, incorporating new systems and software innovations including overall product lifecycle management (PLM), AM factory optimization, industrial 3D printing and data intelligence, manufacturing execution, and performance analytics.
The integration of HP’s new Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise offerings enables industrial companies to bring 3D printed parts to market faster, more cost-effectively, more sustainably, and at higher volumes than ever before.
Speaking about the collaboration with HP, Klaus Helmrich, CEO of Siemens Digital Industries and member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG, said, “We are excited to expand our collaboration with HP. Innovative partnerships and cutting-edge technologies such as additive manufacturing are essential for the digital transformation of companies across industries. Siemens and HP are thinking ahead to the future and are bringing together the best from both companies in a complete, industry-specific solution that will accelerate the adoption of industrial additive manufacturing and help our customers to increase flexibility, efficiency, and speed of digital manufacturing.”
“We are proud to partner with Siemens to make high-performance parts, personalized products, and serialized 3D production a reality for our customers,” said Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing and member of the Executive Leadership Team at HP Inc.
The expanded additive manufacturing solution from Siemens and HP integrates hardware, software, data intelligence, and services to optimize the efficiency of the entire manufacturing process, from design and simulation through production planning, execution, quality, and control. This integrated, closed-loop environment, backed by the industry’s leading forces, streamlines every phase of designing and 3D printing serialized parts – with greater scale, higher quality, and less waste.
“As a provider of solutions and services we want to team up with strong partners that have the necessary expertise in materials and the manufacturing process to support them to produce 3D printing systems,” added Klaus Helmrich.
“HP and Siemens are building on a vision first established in 2016. Today, thanks to advances in HP’s 3D printing systems and data intelligence portfolio and Siemens AM offerings, the integrated end-to-end solution has reached a level of efficiency that enables industries to viably 3D print high-quality parts at volume production,” continued HP’s Christoph Schell.
HP, Siemens, and their customers will initially explore exciting new applications in areas such as personalization, fluid dynamics optimization, and energy absorption, to name a few.
