Last week, HP opened its new 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing Center of Excellence; this week, Hawk Ridge Systems opened a new Midwestern additive manufacturing facility. I was in Barcelona for its inaugural press day, touring the 152,000-square-foot facility and speaking with executives, customers, and partners. Ramon Pastor, General Manager and Global Head of Plastics Solutions for HP 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, and President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing Christoph Schell cut the ribbon to the Center together, marking its grand opening. The Center of Excellence, or Building 10, is the tenth building on HP’s Sant Cugat del Vallès campus. It includes dedicated labs for both Multi Jet Fusion polymer 3D printing and Metal Jet metal 3D printing systems. Hundreds of engineers devoted to HP’s activities in 3D printing are based on-site — a site that was also built for collaboration. Partners like Siemens and Materialise and customers like ZiggZagg were in Barcelona for the grand opening festivities to share their perspectives on both MJF and Metal Jet 3D printing. Applications from medical to consumer goods, from industrial to automotive, were on display to share a look at some of the real-life use cases for HP’s technologies. HP execs also shared a look at how the company itself is making use of its 3D printing capabilities in other business lines, such as large-format (2D) printer manufacturer. The Center is a testament to sustainable architecture as well, featuring a large photovoltaic roof and water reuse throughout the building. The structure is one of the world’s largest — according to HP, it may be the largest — dedicated to 3D printing R&D. It stands as a testament to HP’s strong and deep-rooted commitment to a future of not just 3D printing, but digital manufacturing. Silicon Valley-based Hawk Ridge Systems, for its part, opened a new additive manufacturing location in Ohio. The Midwest, formerly the Rust Belt, is being reinvented as the Tech Belt and is home to a growing amount of activity in additive manufacturing. The new Hawk Ridge facility is located near Cincinnati, which houses a good amount of 3D printing activity already, showing smart attention to the market. The digital manufacturing lab offers a Midwestern base for Hawk Ridge’s client meetings and training operations, as well as a production showroom for Markforged and HP 3D printing systems. Hawk Ridge now has 22 offices located in the US and Canada. “The Cincinnati area is an ideal location because of the strong engineering and manufacturing presence that Ohio offers. We are extremely excited about this expansion and look forward to working with companies, both big and small, for their additive manufacturing needs,” says Paul Rudin, VP of Digital Manufacturing for Hawk Ridge Systems. Dale Ford, CEO of Hawk Ridge Systems, commented that, “Hawk Ridge Systems is thrilled to open our new location in Ohio and expand our additive manufacturing capabilities. We look forward to becoming a member of the Cincinnati community and an integral part of the local manufacturing sector.” Buy Cbd Oil Nashville
