HP Intros Jet Fusion 3D Printer

HP presents what it claims is the first production-ready 3D printing system at RAPID 2016-- the Jet Fusion, a printer the company says is up to 10 times faster than existing machines while promising to cut manufacturing costs by half.

Based on the Multi Jet Fusion technology first released back in 2014, Jet Fusion machines simultaneously operate 10000 nozzles to print objects on the level of individual voxels (3D pixels made of tiny cubes) at 21 micron resolution. The ystem is similar to thermal inkjet arrays, and provides higher levels of granular control over finished products, as well as a seamless finish.

Epson Intros In-Office Paper Recycler

Environmentally conscious customers wanting to reduce office paper waste might be interested in the PaperLab-- a machine Epson claims is "the world's first compact office papermaking system."

In a few words, the PaperLab recycles used paper (including office paper, business cards and even coloured or scented paper) into fresh sheets of various sizes, thicknesses and types. Making the machine even more environmentally-friendly is the fact it does not use water. Instead uses special adhesives to bind stripped paper fibres before calibrating sheet whiteness and thickness.

Customers can use different binders to create paper with various properties, such as different colours, fragrance or flame resistance.

Toshiba Claims Faster 3D Metal Printer

Toshiba presents a prototype 3D metal printer promising fabrication speeds up to 10x faster than printers using powder bed fusion, the current most common metal sintering technology.

The printer uses laser metal deposition (LMD)-- a technology that deposits powdered metal and fires a laser beam in tandem. A high-speed nozzle based on Toshiba fluid simulation technology reduces the area where metal particles are injected, while the laser focuses very precisely on the tiny powder-covered area.

Gartner: 2016 3D Printer Shipments to Reach 460000

Gartner predicts rapid near future growth for the 3D printer market with 2016 shipments reaching 496475 units, a 105% increase over the 244533 units forecast to ship in 2015.

Such growth will continue over the next few years, as the analyst says shipments will "more than double" every year between 2016 and 2019 before global shipments grow to over 5.6 million.

"Rapid quality and performance innovations across all 3D printer technologies are driving both enterprise and consumer demand, with unit shipment growth rates for 3D printers increasing significantly," Gartner says. "The 3D printer market is continuing its transformation from a niche market to broad-based, global market of enterprises and consumers."

What You Need to Know About 3D Printing

HP is in. Microsoft and Intel, too. Ingram Micro, Tech Data, ABC Data and other distributors have opened Business Units or appointed product managers. Best Buy, WalMart, Media Markt, Staples, Synaxon and even Cool Blue are selling it at retail. Not to mention companies like Verbatim selling "filament" to print in 3D like they did for the PC with diskettes and CDs.

3D printing is IT's Next Big Thing. There are 3D scanners that attach to an iPad... applications that link to HP Sprout, Oculus Rift and Augmented Reality...service bureaus and even Read more...
