An exclusive interview with Emilio Juarez, HP's EMEA Head of 3D Printing Sales reprinted from 3D Printing Media Network Horizons Optical is not your typical eyewear company. The company doesn’t simply produce glasses, rather, it develops innovative technologies and services for ophthalmic laboratories, optical chains and the optical sector on the whole. One of its most cutting edge projects is the Made4U concept, which utilizes imaging and 3D printing technologies to create fully customized frames. On the manufacturing end of the Made4U project, Horizons Optical has turned to emerging 3D printing leader HP to leverage its Multi Jet Fusion technology. [...]

Designed for in-house prototyping and small scale production, these printers can produce fully functional parts with optimal mechanical properties either in vibrant full color or white depending on the printer model.
HP just launched a new line of Jet Fusion 3D printers, the HP 5200 series. HP’s latest machines target volume production, with accuracy and repeatability likened to injection molding. The company also released a new flexible TPU for Jet Fusion, confirmed new industrial alliances, and introduced its Digital Manufacturing Network. This new 5200 series is part of a natural progression at the company. The 500/300 series targeted functional prototyping and the 4200 is aimed at short runs and production. The new 5200 series is HP’s 3D printer for volume production. Volume production, as defined by HP, is production runs in [...]
Desktop Metal's Bound Metal Deposition technology brings metal 3D printing into the office environment, making low-cost prototyping of metal parts achievable as well as user-friendly and cost-effective. The Studio printer extrudes rods that have metal powder bound within wax and plastic to form the parts. The binders in these parts are then removed through a two-step process of debinding and sintering similar to metal injection molding; also known as MIM. Desktop Metal's Bound Metal Deposition platform will ultimately have access to a wide range of metals from the MIM industry and there are currently 30 materials in development. The materials [...]

https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/gw4al6zpky?embedType=iframe&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 Cimquest is excited to showcase one of our customers, Alpha Precision Group. Since their initial implementation of the Desktop Studio system just 8 months ago, they have created over 200 metal parts (100 of them unique). APG is excited about the value proposition of the technology and share how Bound Metal Deposition has impacted their business objectives through this informative video. Learn about some of the parts they have done thus far and why they are pleased with the results of their Desktop Metal Studio printer!
The HP Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3D Printers enable the production of functional parts in color, black or white without compromising mechanical properties. These printers are ideal for focused teams who want to work smarter and prototype faster. Watch the video below to discover how the HP Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3D Printers work.

The new Form 3 3D printer from Formlabs represents the next generation of industrial 3D Printing. With advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology, Formlabs has completely re-engineered resin-based 3D printing to drastically reduce the forces of the print process. One of the benefits of Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) is that the flexible tank significantly reduces stress on the part during the peel process. This results in much clearer parts with improved surface finish as shown in these comparison photos of a Form 2 and Form 3 print. See for yourself by viewing the images below.
