Additive Manufacturing
Can reduce carbon footprint by 95x

Environmental Sustainability

  • Enable on-demand, more localized.
  • Expand product life through increased availability of spare parts.
  • Eliminate part obsolescence.
  • Reduce waste, less material, high reusability.
  • Reduce shipping.
  • Reduce inventory of raw materials and finished products.
  • Improved carbon footprint compared to traditional manufacturing methods.
  • Reduce time to market with functional prototypes.
  • Reduce stock holding with digital inventories.
  • Reduce exposure to global supply chain.

HP Case Study

Using 3D printed parts in their own products – an aluminium machined traditional part replaced with a plastic HP MJF printed equivalent resulted in:

  • 50% cost reduction
  • 935 weight reduction
  • 95x carbon footprint reduction
