The new products show how additive manufacturing is increasingly used for end-use production.
This new range of large-format 2D printers, named the HP Stitch S series, incorporates 3D printed parts. Using additive manufacturing has saved the company an estimated $145,000 in tooling, design prototype modifications and final parts production. The three new printers in the textile range include the HP Stitch S300, the HP Stitch S500, and the HP Stitch S1000.
“Décor and fashion application trends, on-demand production and personalization are boosting digital print growth,” said Santi Morera, Head of Graphics Solutions Business at HP.
