As part of a global collaboration, INDO-MIM has purchased three cutting-edge HP Metal Jet S100 printers. Two of its advanced Metal Jet S100 printers will provide localised support to Indian clients while also expanding production capabilities. One will focus on new material development, while the other will drive application development and serve customers in India, the Middle East, and the rest of Asia-Pacific. A third printer has been installed at the Indo-MIM facility in Texas, USA.

Savi Baveja, President of Personalization & 3D Printing, HP Inc, said “We are proud to partner with INDO-MIM to create new possibilities for their customers leveraging HP’s metals additive manufacturing capabilities. We are ready to transform the landscape of metal parts production in India by manufacturing locally and exporting worldwide. We are confident that by working together, we can drive innovation, boost adoption, and enhance India’s presence in the global manufacturing arena.”

“Our partnership with HP signifies a milestone in our journey to provide cutting-edge production ready 3D metal binder jet solutions to our customers. The acquisition of HP’s Metal Jet S100 printers equips us with the latest technology, enabling us to meet the growing demands of our customers with efficiency and precision, as well as expand the library of materials qualified on the HP printer platform.”

The Metal Jet S100 3D metal production solution was introduced in the autumn of 2023, and it has since enabled companies all over the world to efficiently design and produce metal parts while also transforming supply chains. HP and INDO-MIM have been advancing innovative technology and sustainable manufacturing by leveraging the potential of metal additive manufacturing, thereby benefiting markets across industries.

INDO-MIM is one of the largest Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) companies, with manufacturing facilities in India, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and customers in North America, Europe, the South East Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to MIM, INDO-MIM provides investment casting, Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM), and precision machined components to the aerospace and medical device markets.

INDO-MIM began offering metal powders to the additive manufacturing industry in 2020, and it is now a leading producer of world-class metal powder products designed for Laser-bed fusion and Binder-Jet 3D printing systems. INDO-MIM believes that deeper integration of additive manufacturing and powder production processes will accelerate technology adaptation in the future.
