GKN Powder Metallurgy is the world’s top producer of precision powder for metal parts, producing more than 3 billion parts per year for customers around the world, mainly in automotive industries. Thanks to a partnership with HP Metal Jet, GKN Powder Metallurgy is able to produce high volumes of manufacturing-grade metal parts for customers.

Upon adopting HP Metal Jet for parts production, GKN has improved time to market and accelerated production, and the technology’s capability to adapt for small-series production has been an attractive point for GKN customers that need to produce smaller quantities.

“By combining the forces of HP and GKN Powder Metallurgy, we will push the productivity and capability of our customers to unprecedented levels based on the economic and technical advantages of HP Metal Jet technology,” says Peter Oberparleiter, CEO of GKN Powder Metallurgy.
