A company with over 30 years experience of developing machine tools is turning its attention to additive manufacturing as it becomes a HP 3D printing reseller.

XYZ Machine Tools believes HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions can work alongside conventional metalcutting technology to produce a seamless design to manufacturing process, and has been selected as an official reseller, with the company stating that 3D printing is ‘a perfect addition’ to the machine tools it currently offers.

“We have looked at 3D printing as a technology solution for a while, but we wanted to be convinced about its ability to deliver production level quantities in a time efficient and cost-effective way,” said XYZ Machine Tools managing director Nigel Atherton.

“HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology gives us the confidence that these criteria have now been met and that 3D printing is now a truly complimentary process to sit alongside our existing machine tool systems.”
