XYZ Machines Tools move into 3D printing

: HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solution from XYZ Machine Tools is a high-speed approach to the production of complex parts.

XYZ Machines Tools is familiar to many for its extensive range of metal cutting machine tools, so the move into 3D printing, as an official reseller of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Technology, took many by surprise. However, the move is viewed as logical step by the Burlescombe, Devon-based Company, with additive capabilities of 3D printing offering a complimentary process to its existing metal removal machine tools.

At the TCT Show (stand N47), XYZ Machine Tools will have on display the HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210 Printing solution along with its associated processing and fast cooling station. This combination can print at up to 4500 cm3 per h, with 100% of any excess material being recycled and re-useable. The machine can be configured for continuous production printing, eliminating in many cases the costs associated with injection mould tools. Apart from the processing speed, another attraction of the HP Multi Jet Fusion technology was its ease of use. The HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions are user-friendly and streamline workflow, from developing component build and automatic packing of the print chamber.
