HP’s Metal 3D Printer Is Probably A Mim Based Metal Additive Manufacturing Method

HP Inc. first publicly revealed plans to embark on metal 3D printing at last week’s Security Analyst Meeting.

While details given at the event were sparse, 3D Printing Industry has exclusive insights into the technology under development and the team involved – ahead of official announcements scheduled for 2018.

Senior management moves

HP’s metal additive manufacturing project will be led by Tim Weber who has held the job title Global Head of 3D Printing Materials and Advanced Applications at HP.

Taking over as Global Head of 3D Fusion Science at HP will be Cheryl MacLeod. Both Weber and MacLeod are based at HP’s Corvallis, Oregon site. MacLeod has more than 20 years experience working at HP and will be responsible for the continuing endeavor to bring color to HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing system.

HP provided a number of photo’s of 3D prints made with -the as of yet- unnamed process.

Most tellingly, recruitment is currently underway for a Metal Powder Expert/Additive Manufacturing Sintering Expert to “lead HPs investigation into metal 3D printing” at Corvallis.
