HP Inc. has announced the launch of its new HP Digital Manufacturing Network, described as a global network of HP production partners which will help design, produce, and deliver both polymer and metal additively manufactured parts at scale. The network is expected to enable customers to speed the development of new products, shorten time to market, create leaner supply chains and reduce their carbon footprint.

The HP Digital Manufacturing Network initially includes partners in the United States, Asia, and Europe. The company stated that it will further expand the network into other target markets with additional qualified partners in the coming months.

Initial partners include GKN Powder Metallurgy, Parmatech, Materialise, Forecast 3D, GoProto, Jabil and ZiggZagg NV. Each partner will use HP’s Additive Manufacturing solutions and draw on their own Additive Manufacturing expertise, high-volume production capacity and end-to-end manufacturing processes to meet customer needs.

Fried Vancraen, Founder and CEO, Materialise, commented on the network’s launch, “Our customers are excited by our tighter integration with HP, our joint work on new applications and materials, and our commitment to scale high-quality part production. Together we are helping our customers win in an increasingly competitive marketplace.”

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is one of the most transformative forces in our lifetime. New technology innovations will be required, new partnership models will emerge, and new modes of doing business will unfold,” stated Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP. “HP is committed to helping customers with diverse manufacturing needs turn change into opportunity by delivering the most innovative solutions portfolio and comprehensive ecosystem of industry-leading partners.”
