HP and Sandvik collaborate in the development of new materials
HP and Sandvik announce a strategic collaboration aiming to pioneer a new era of advanced materials for additive manufacturing. Together, the two companies continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with additive manufacturing.
HP, a global technology company, is excited to announce a strategic collaboration with Sandvik to pioneer a new era of advanced materials for 3D printing. This strategic collaboration introduces cutting-edge materials like superalloys and high performing, competitively priced 316L, amplifying the potential of HP's Metal Jet technology and ushering in innovative applications across various industries. This collaboration also expands the already existing and successful collaboration to develop the foundational HP Metal Jet 17-4PH stainless steel powder.
Ramon Pastor, Global Head of 3D Metals at HP, stated, "This collaboration is a game-changer. Our collaboration with Sandvik broadens Metal Jet's capabilities, empowering industries to revolutionize manufacturing processes and products.”
Sandvik and HP, working in tandem with industry leaders Parmatech and Endeavor 3D, are pioneering the development of cutting-edge materials. Alexandre Tartas, Global Head of Go-To-Market, HP Personalization & 3D Printing, emphasized that “these materials are strategically crafted to empower our valued customers, enabling them to explore groundbreaking applications, especially in the aerospace and industrial sectors. “
Customers benefit by combining HP’s process expertise with Sandvik’s materials expertise to jointly develop materials meeting customer specifications and requirements. Furthermore, customers can purchase powders directly from Sandvik and access HP’s Professional Services to establish a development program for their specific needs.
Andrew Coleman, Head of Additive Manufacturing at Sandvik, remarked, " By combining the expertise of our companies, I believe the collaboration will lead to advancements in both materials and manufacturing technology that will ultimately benefit our customers.”
