Belgian software and 3D printing service provider Materialise, has announced partnerships with HP, Nikon, and Essentium at RAPID + TCT to improve productivity and connectivity for industrial additive manufacturing.

The company also declared the scheduled release of its latest 3D printing operations management software, Streamics 8, next month. Fried Vancraen, Founder and CEO of Materialise, said:

Advantage - Printing - Environment - Manufacturing - Companies

“To take advantage of large-scale 3D printing in an increasingly cost-competitive environment, manufacturing companies require increased productivity and efficiency and seamless integration of 3D printing into their existing and proven production processes.”

“OVERCOMING SOME OF THE REMAINING LIMITATIONS ATTRIBUTED TO 3D PRINTING WILL REQUIRE CONTINUED INNOVATION AND COLLABORATION TO CREATE A MORE OPEN MARKET MODEL WITH MORE CONTROL, MORE CHOICE, AND ULTIMATELY LOWER COST.”

Earlier this month, HP and Materialise announced an alliance through its Digital Manufacturing Network following its launch of a new line of Jet Fusion 3D printers, the 5200 series and Fusion 500/300 Series.

Partners - Collaboration - Customers - Connection - Materialise

Now the partners are expanding its collaboration to provide its customers with a seamless connection between the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite and HP Jet Fusion printing systems. This allows for advanced data preparation and operation management in additive manufacturing processes. Furthermore, a Materialise HP Build Processor 2.0 is integrated into such HP machines to retrieve operational data for improved production monitoring.

This works in tandem with Materialise Streamics software to store relevant build- data for improved traceability. The Materialise HP Build Processor 2.0 is set to be available in the second half of the year. Additionally, Materialise is developing innovative solutions for HP’s new certified thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), ULTRASINT developed by BASF.
