PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Jan 07, 2015 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced Intel Corporation as the silicon architecture for HP Multi Jet Fusion, a revolutionary technology engineered to resolve critical gaps in the combination of speed, quality and cost, and deliver on the potential of 3D printing. Dion Weisler, executive vice president, Printing & Personal Systems (PPS), HP joined Brian Krzanich, Chief Executive Officer, Intel, on stage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, to share their vision for how this collaboration aims to realize the transformative potential of 3D printing.
HP recently unveiled HP Multi Jet Fusion as part of its Blended Reality ecosystem, designed to break down the barriers between the digital and physical worlds. Leveraging unique 3D print intellectual property, including HP Thermal Inkjet assets, HP Multi Jet Fusion is built to transform manufacturing across industries by delivering systems that are 10x faster than the best technology on the market today, with better quality, increased productivity, and break-through economics.
The partnership underscores the companies' commitment to delivering transformative technologies for the future and driving market categories forward. Together, the technology engineered by HP and powered by Intel has the potential to revolutionize production and offer businesses a new way to prototype and produce goods for customers.
"HP Multi Jet Fusion is uniquely designed to resolve fundamental limitations in today's 3D printing technologies with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing," said Weisler. "In order for 3D printing to reach its full potential, we not only need the most powerful processors, but a technology partner with a shared vision for the industry."
Intel Core i7 processors will be integrated into HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and used in agile product testing with customers as part of HP's Open Customer Collaboration Program throughout 2015. Wider distribution of the HP 3D Print system will begin in 2016.
"Our companies share a long history of innovation and a vision to deliver innovative 3D computing experiences that transform the way people interact with and use technology for work and play," said Krzanich. "The combination of Intel architecture with HP's Multi jet Fusion technology will help to accelerate not only the speed of 3D printing but the availability of the technology to consumers and enterprises alike."
Intel Core i7 Processors power other facets of HP's Blended Reality ecosystem, including Sprout by HP, an immersive computing platform that combines multiple devices -- a scanner, hi-resolution camera, Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera, projector -- into a single device, allowing users to take physical items and seamlessly merge them into a digital workspace.
