Currie Group supplies HP Jet Fusion 3D printers to Defence Science & Technology

Currie Group company EVOK3D has been successful in a public tender and is supplying Defence Science and Technology (DST) with three HP Jet Fusion 3D printing systems. 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 for production of robust end-use parts, tooling and jigs, as well as concept models and prototypes. 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.

“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,” said Joe Carmody, EVOK3D Managing Director.

“The fact the Dept. 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.”

EVOK3D is an Australian owned and operated specialist 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM) solutions company now in its 8th year of operation. It is the HP 3D printing partner for Australia and New Zealand, and has supplied the Dept. of Defence with machines and service across multiple sites over the years.
