HP has appointed RP Support (RPS) as a channel partner for its 3D printing technology in the UK market.
RPS will sell and service the HP Jet Fusion range of 3D printers and accessories to all industry sectors across the region.
UK-based RPS has grown strongly over the last 10 years from supplying materials, equipment and service contracts to now employing 22 people and building and selling its own production stereolithography system the NEO800. Additionally, RPS has developed key partnerships with ALM for a range of laser sintering materials, DSM Somos for SL materials, Markforged, as a partner for its carbon fibre, desktop 3D printers, and now with HP as a channel partner for its end-to-end production solution in HP Jet Fusion 3D printing systems.
The HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing solution comprising the HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200/3200 Printer and Processing Station with Fast Cooling, was launched in May last year. It is claimed to offer outstanding, reproducible part quality and high-speed productivity coupled with lowest cost per part, opening the door to short run digital manufacturing of thermoplastic parts.
“We are extremely pleased to introduce RPS as one of our new channel partners," states Andrew Knowles, Business Manager for HP 3D Multi Jet Fusion for UK and Ireland. "They have an excellent reputation in the 3D printing industry, as well as a strong knowledge of how our HP 3D printing technology will bring best in class performance to both individual customers and within new markets.”
