Midlands 3D invest in HP MJF 3D Printer from Matsuura

Increased capacity

Staffordshire based Midlands 3D has today announced the addition of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) industrial 3D printing capability to its extensive FDM and SLA 3D printing print bureau service and taking total capacity to over 100 machines whilst adding a second dedicated facility.

Company founder and CEO Paul Moloney commented “Our business has grown significantly by offering cost-effective volume FDM 3D print manufacturing with our existing range of volume and large format machines, and the addition of the HP Multi Jet Fusion printer supplied by Matsuura enables us to deliver this volume capability to a greater range of customers who need strong, accurate nylon parts”.

Midlands 3D has seen growth throughout the pandemic with an influx of clients looking for ways to remove cost from their existing operations, innovating with new government supported investments or simply looking to ‘bounce back’ as the economy starts to rejuvenate. “We are regularly providing larger and larger orders for clients looking to replace tooling, components or end-use parts with 3D printed alternatives, and the ability to now use a versatile material such as PA12 with a genuinely efficient production process, ticks even more of the boxes needed”.

“As the successor to the 4200 series machines, the 5200 was designed from the ground up to deliver fast, accurate and cost-effective 3D print manufacturing which fits with our niche” added Paul. Opening a new, dedicated facility for the MJF service, Midlands 3D now operates from two sites in Stone, Staffordshire. “The new facility will act as both a showcase for our additive manufacturing capabilities, but also enable customers to come and see the service in operation… socially distanced of course!”

Joe Bellis, Additive Manufacturing Sales Manager at Matsuura Machinery Ltd commented: “We’re delighted that Midlands 3D have chosen to invest in the HP MJF 5200 3D printer after visiting our additive facility and evaluating the entire range of HP MJF 3D printers available. The 5200 printer enables them to scale up production and transition from FDM to MJF seamlessly. The addition of HP MJF technology complements and expands their current additive manufacturing offering, accommodating a broader range of applications, from prototypes to full production.”
