Tokyo, Japan., June 15, 2022 – SOLIZE Corporation and HP Inc. today announced that Toyota Motor Corporation has installed HP’s 3D printing solution to verify applications for final products in addition to producing prototypes.
In 2021, in response to customer demand, Toyota Motor Corporation started an initiative to produce replacement parts using 3D printing and sell them as genuine parts. For this project, SOLIZE uses the HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution to manufacture parts. To create a more flexible manufacturing process, Toyota Motor Corporation decided to deploy the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series aimed at using 3D printing for short-run production of final products as well as prototypes.
SOLIZE and HP are continuing their long-standing partnership to advance digital manufacturing. SOLIZE, a HP partner, owns five HP Jet Fusion 3D printers and has extensive experience and know-how in 3D printing. SOLIZE supported the smooth deployment of HP’s 3D printer for Toyota Motor Corporation.
The HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D Printing Solution can design and manufacture high-quality commercial parts by taking advantage of the advanced capabilities provided by HP’s Multi Jet Fusion Platform. By producing functional parts with the highest degree of isotropy in its class, customers can achieve both production efficiency and economic efficiency, and manufacture final parts for a wide range of applications. HP continues to work with the world's leading automakers and other manufacturers to provide solutions that meet the performance and functional requirements which customers look for.
“Every day we are seeing growing traction and more mature 3D printed applications across many different industries globally, especially in automotive.” said Nobuki Okado, Managing Director, HP Japan Inc. “Leading auto makers like Toyota Motor Corporation are showcasing the power of 3D printing for flexible design, speed to market, and sustainable impact. HP and SOLIZE continue to work together to meet the demand for more innovative, personalized, and sustainable products.”
SOLIZE has been a leader in digital engineering technology since the dawn of 3D CAD in the 1990s, when it started rapid prototyping and 3D modeling using 3D printers, as well as 3D CAD engineer education and 3D CAD engineering services. Currently, SOLIZE provides 3D CAD/CAE engineering services for product design and analysis, MBD engineering services for model-based development, 3D printing engineering services for the production of prototypes, low-volume mass-produced products using additive manufacturing (metal and plastic) and sales of industrial additive manufacturing equipment and innovations engineering services to reform customer’s business and/or development process based on our unique technology of transforming tacit knowledge into formal knowledge. Through our four core businesses, we provide valuable services to our customers.
