HP and Siemens expanded their strategic alliance to help customers transform their businesses with industrial additive manufacturing (AM). Siemens and HP will incorporate systems and software innovations including overall product lifecycle management (PLM), AM factory optimization, industrial 3D printing and data intelligence, manufacturing execution and performance analytics.

The expanded AM solution integrates hardware, software, data intelligence and services to optimize the efficiency of the entire manufacturing process, from design and simulation through production planning, execution, quality and control.

The integration of HP’s Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D printing solution with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise offerings enables industrial companies to bring 3D-printed parts to market faster, more cost-effectively, more sustainably and at higher volumes than before. The announcement was made at Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in Erlangen, Germany.
