California-based 3D prototyping and short-run manufacturing specialist GoProto has expanded into the Asia Pacific region, with the launch of a new 3D printing and additive manufacturing facility in Melbourne.

The GoProto ANZ facility at Mount Waverley will include an HP Jet Fusion 4210 printer, reckoned to be 10-times faster than existing rapid prototyping and 3D printing systems.

Jesse Lea, President of US operations says: “Current technologies like SLS or SLA lack the combined precision, speed and function that’s demanded to push printed parts into mainstream manufacturing. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology will accomplish high-end, functional prototyping and final part production to industries in search of short-run manufacturing needs.”

According to Robert Mesaros, Vice President & Head of 3D Printing for Asia Pacific & Japan, HP: “Our ambition is to reinvent the way the world designs and manufactures. This expansion is testament to how HP is working with partners like GoProto to accelerate this transformation, enabling them to shorten and localise the design and manufacturing cycle for their customers.”

Leon Gairns will head up GoProto’s ANZ operation as General Manager, offering an extensive portfolio of prototyping and manufacturing services, including CNC machining, cast urethane, sheet metal and injection moulding.
