HP has kept true on their promise to transform 3D printing and on Monday, the company launched what they dubbed to be the world’s most advanced 3D printing technology for the mass manufacturing of production-grade metal parts.

3D printing is still a small part of the metals industry but in the future, it is expected to grow and though it’s mostly used to fabricate prototypes nowadays, it can also be 50 times more productive than conventional means of producing metal parts.

HP has helped lead this transformation by pioneering the 3D mass production of plastic parts and we are now doubling down with HP Metal Jet, a breakthrough metals 3D printing technology,”
