HP Smart Factory
Enabling additive manufacturing at scale through automation
Reality sometimes has a hard time matching the promise of new technologies. It’s not that the promise isn’t achievable, it’s that the existing tools aren’t opening the right doors. That’s when you need to look at the problem differently. And that’s just what HP Smart Factory is doing. We are combining tools and technologies developed by HP, and our partners, to open the doors of new and emerging markets built around personalization, customization and on-demand manufacturing.
For AM to succeed in production, it must be able to achieve a manageable, repeatable cost structure even as product or process complexity increases. From order ingestion to product readiness, dynamic, intelligent automation is critical.
More than ever, hardware and software must work in concert to meet the increasing demands for complexity and customization in today’s production environments.
Production at scale means truly enabling automation and repeatability. It means utilizing a technology that was developed specifically to take advantage of today’s—and tomorrow’s—hardware.
