EVOK3D, a specialist in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, has won a public tender to supply three industrial-grade HP 3D printers to the Australian Defence Science and Technology Group (DST).
The contract involves EVOK3D supplying three HP Jet Fusion 3D printing systems to DST.
Also included in the scope of supply is automated post-processing equipment, suitable for serial manufacturing.
The industrial-grade HP Jet Fusion 4200 printers will be used by DST to produce robust end-use parts, tooling and jigs, as well as concept models and prototypes.
EVOK3D says due to the high output possible from the HP 4200 machines, they can also be used for on-demand local manufacturing of critical parts in the event of supply chain disruption.
This revolutionary technology is set to enable the reinvention of manufacturing in Australia due to its flexibility and agility compared to traditional manufacturing processes.
EVOK3D managing director Joe Carmody says, “3D printing has moved beyond just prototyping and is now a viable and flexible direct manufacturing technology.
“DST’s motto is Science and Technology for Safeguarding Australia and we are very proud to be playing a part in securing supply chain sovereignty for this country.
“The fact the Deptartment of Defence has selected EVOK3D and HP’s production-ready solutions reinforces that our clients across defence, industry, design, education and healthcare can continue to invest with confidence.”
