HP Inc. announced Tuesday the commercial availability of its award-winning Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing solution in India. Continuing the growth of its partner community in India, the company also announced that it has added Imaginarium and Adroitec as resellers of its 3D printing solution in the country.
The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing solution is a production-ready commercial 3D printing system known to deliver high quality physical parts at a faster rate and half the cost of existing 3D printing systems. The announcement seems to have come as a part of the company’s plan to sell 3D printers in India starting Q1’ 2018.
Speaking about how the 3D printer will revolutionise the global manufacturing sector, in an official release, Stephen Nigro, President of 3D printing, HP Inc. said, “As we continue the journey to the fourth industrial revolution, the digital transformation of manufacturing will benefit our global society and accelerate economic opportunities around the world”. “Breakthrough technologies like HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions are a catalyst for this reinvention of the $12 trillion global manufacturing sector. We are proud to help India’s manufacturing community drive toward tangible and participatory innovation, smart economic growth, and a sustainable future”, Nigro added.
Adding more about how 3D printing technology will disrupt the manufacturing industry, Sumeer Chandra, Managing Director, HP Inc. India said, “3D printing will contribute to democratizing manufacturing and disrupting the entire industry, including the $6 trillion Asia-Pacific and Japan manufacturing segment”. Speaking about the importance of India in the Asia-Pacific market, Chandra added, “India is a strategic hub for this significant shift and we are excited to bring the cutting-edge Multi Jet Fusion technology to customers large and small across a variety of vertical markets.”
HP’s increasing partner base allows businesses to develop and reinvent the way they design and manufacture. As certified HP 3D printing resellers, Imaginarium – a Mumbai-based 3D printing and rapid prototyping company and Adroitec will offer their expertise and will help customers to deploy HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Technology. The innovative partners will also provide value added services such as enablement of new applications and industry-leading response time and service quality.
The company’s move of selling 3D printers in the country can also be attributed to the initiatives such as “Make in India” and “Digital India” launched by the Indian Government to drive the manufacturing sector. Giving credit to the government’s initiatives, Chandra further said, “Propelled by Government’s initiatives like Make in India and Digital India, the Indian economy is at the cusp of a major transformation as it seeks to become a global manufacturing center”.
Adding how the company will benefit India and contribute to its digital transformation, Chandra added, “HP has been committed to creating technology that advances lives and businesses across India. With HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solution, we will be able to help drive India’s transformation and enable local businesses to accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and overall digital transformation.”
