HP and Siemens announces an expansion of their strategic alliance to help customers transform their businesses with industrial additive manufacturing (AM).
Siemens and HP will expand their integrated additive manufacturing solution, incorporating new systems and software innovations including overall product lifecycle management (PLM), AM factory optimization, industrial 3D printing and data intelligence, manufacturing execution, and performance analytics.
The integration of HP’s new Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise offerings enables industrial companies to bring 3D printed parts to market faster, more cost-effectively, more sustainably, and at higher volumes than ever before.
“Siemens and HP are thinking ahead to the future and are bringing together the best from both companies in a complete, industry-specific solution that will accelerate the adoption of industrial additive manufacturing and help our customers to increase flexibility, efficiency, and speed of digital manufacturing,” said Klaus Helmrich, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens and CEO of Digital Industries.
“We are proud to partner with Siemens to make high-performance parts, personalized products and serialized 3D production a reality for our customers,” said Christoph Schell, President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing and member of the Executive Leadership Team at HP.
“HP and Siemens share the vision that digital manufacturing systems are catalysts for change – expanded software, data, services, and industrial production solutions that lead to new manufacturing capabilities, innovative applications, and breakthrough business results for our customers,” added Schell.
The expanded additive manufacturing solution from Siemens and HP integrates hardware, software, data intelligence and services to optimize the efficiency of the entire manufacturing process, from design and simulation through production planning, execution, quality, and control. This integrated, closed-loop environment, backed by the industry’s leading forces, streamlines every phase of designing and 3D printing serialized parts – with greater scale, higher quality and less waste.
The cooperation is coupled with the new Siemens Polymer Competency Center, which will be the focal point for the two companies to work jointly with automotive and industrial customers to create unique product designs, bring 3D printed parts to market faster, and set up digital factory environments that unleash the full potential of additive manufacturing.
