FAQs about industrial 3D printing:
1. What is industrial 3D printing?
Industrial 3D printing refers to the use of 3D printers for rapid, volume part production with manufacturing predictability, reliability, and productivity. These printers are equipped to produce quality parts at high speeds, providing a faster return on investment. While the initial cost of acquiring an industrial 3D printer may be higher, their higher-end construction, like the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Industrial 3D Printer, and user-friendly interfaces make them reliable and durable for repeated use.
In contrast to entry-level 3D printers, the yield combined with throughput, productivity, and cost per part that you would get from one of these manufacturing-ready industrial 3D printers is a world apart. If you're interested, you can learn more about industrial 3D printers and their costs.
2. How much is HP 3D Jet Fusion 5200 and 4200?
Industrial 3D printers are versatile, durable, and reliable and they typically require an operator, so the investment is better suited for businesses that are certain about the role 3D printing plays in their supply chain.
It’s worth noting that the price of these printers may be calculated as a solution consisting of different elements that the 3D printer vendor recommends for your specific needs. These elements may include 3D printer hardware, post-processing equipment, services, and other tools that support your manufacturing workflow.

3. How much does an industrial 3D printer cost?
3D printers are available in various sizes and ranges, from small, low-cost home machines to large-scale industrial printers. While some require a limited setup and are easy to operate, others can be extremely technical and demanding. Additionally, some printers are suitable for producing individual items, while others are designed for industrial quantities, or specific materials like plastics or metals.
To know how much you can expect to pay for a 3D printer, the best approach is to fully understand your needs and specify them when requesting a quote. This way, you can get a price that is tailored to your unique requirements.

4. Who are industrial 3D printer companies?
Industrial 3D printer companies are manufacturing firms that support OEMs in producing prototypes and final parts for various industries. Their expertise in areas such as application development, part design, printing, post-processing, and quality control makes them a competitive option for outsourcing the production of functional prototypes and high-mix, low-volume serial manufacturing.
Specifically, HP Digital Manufacturing Partners are industrial 3D printer companies evaluated and qualified by HP based on their end-to-end 3D printing service capabilities for mass production, manufacturing, and quality processes. These companies can help accelerate a business’ digital transformation with 3D-printed parts, enabling rapid innovation, faster time-to-market, distributed manufacturing, and a leaner supply chain.
5. Industrial use of 3D printers?
3D printing is rapidly becoming a key technology enabler for efficient design and production in the industrial sector. Additive manufacturing offers many industrial 3D printing applications that can optimize performance, cut lead times, and reduce costs. Some of these applications include the manufacture of machinery and industrial equipment, production-line components, robots, end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT), molds, manufacturing aids, tooling, jigs, and fixtures.
6. Why 3D printing?
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, enables you to produce geometrically complex objects, shapes, and textures. It often uses less material than traditional manufacturing methods and allows the production of items that were simply not possible to produce economically with traditional manufacturing.
If you’re new to 3D printing technology, it might be useful to compare this technology to traditional manufacturing methods such as:
- Subtractive Manufacturing (SM) is the controlled removal of material, like milling, for example.
- Formative Manufacturing (FM) takes a material, usually plastic, and reshapes it to create a final product.
Compare these to 3D printing or additive manufacturing, which involves adding material in layers to create the final product.

7. How fast can industrial 3D printers print?
HP Jet Fusion industrial 3D printers take between 9 to 20 hours for a full build depending on print mode, 3D printer, and material.
