OECHSLER and HP Partner to Scale 3D Printing Applications for Industry Leaders

Industry giants collaborate to accelerate design and mass production of 3D printed parts across automotive, appliances, medical, and other industries

OECHSLER, an engineering solutions provider and one of the largest parts manufacturers in the additive industry, and HP, the leader in industrial 3D printing solutions, today announced a new alliance to help accelerate the mass production of 3D printed parts. The companies are working together across the product lifecycle, from new designs to final parts production, to develop breakthrough applications for customers in industries such as automotive, home and commercial appliances, and medical devices.

"As we continue driving the mass production of 3D printed parts we believe working with an industry leader like HP will enable our customers to take full advantage of digital manufacturing," said Matthias Weißkopf, senior vice president of research and development, Oechsler AG. "With the advanced capabilities of HP's production-grade 3D printing systems we can provide unprecedented levels of quality, speed, reliability, and cost savings. The opportunity to collaborate closely on every phase of the product lifecycle and jointly develop breakthrough applications with HP and our customers will transform industries."
"The path to digital manufacturing requires a powerful and far reaching ecosystem of leading innovators and this new alliance with Oechsler is a significant step in the journey," said Ramon Pastor, Interim President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, HP Inc. "Oechsler understands what it takes to deliver value every step of the way -- from application design to final parts production to post-processing and automation -- and together we will grow and accelerate opportunities for our customers."
At the center of the strategic alliance is the joint development of entirely new applications with market leading automotive, home and commercial appliances, and medical customers to create unique product designs, bring 3D printed parts to market faster, and unleash the full potential of additive manufacturing.
Oechsler has installed a fleet of industrial grade HP Jet Fusion 5200 3D printers in its factory in Ansbach, Germany. Leveraging the platform's advanced capabilities, HP and Oechsler are working with customers to jointly develop new applications using a range of advanced materials enabled by BASF including the new HP 3D High Reusability Polypropylene (PP) and ULTRASINT® TPU01 thermoplastic polyurethane. Oechsler is also the first to use the joint post-processing solution developed by Rösler for the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series. HP today also announced the first of its kind PP as well as an expanded industrial alliance with BASF.
