Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company operates as a technology company developing personal computers (PCs), printers and related supplies, as well as 3D printing solutions.

HP is bringing decades of expertise in printing and materials science with more than 5,000 HP patents, from radical prototyping to final parts manufacturing. HP plans to continue expanding the materials offering even further—delivering a wider family of thermoplastics, including those with flame-retardant properties. And they are exploring new materials, such as elastomers, polyamides, commodity plastics, and high-performance materials such as metal alloys.

HP Inc. was formed on November 1, 2015, renamed from the personal computer and printer divisions of the original Hewlett-Packard Company, with its enterprise products and services businesses becoming Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The split was structured so that Hewlett-Packard changed its name to HP Inc. and spun off Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a new publicly traded company.

The company operates through four segments: Hybrid IT, Intelligent Edge, Financial Services, and Corporate Investments.

Financial Outlook and Market

In the fiscal year 2017 (ended on October 31), total net revenue increased 7.9% (increased 8.7% on a constant currency basis) as compared with the fiscal year 2016. Net revenue from United State increased 7.1% to $19.3 billion and net revenue from outside of the United States increased 8.4% to $32.8 billion. The increase in net revenue was primarily driven by growth in Notebooks, Desktops and Supplies revenue, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency impacts.

In fiscal year 2016(ended in October 31),  total net revenue increased 6.3% (decreased 2.0% on a constant currency basis) as compared with fiscal year 2015. Net revenue from United State increased 1.7% to $18.0 billion and net revenue from outside of the United States decreased 10.4% to $30.2 billion. The primary factor contributing to net revenue decline were unfavorable foreign currency impacts, weak market demand, competitive pricing pressure and the change of the Supplies sales model. The net revenue decline was driven by decline supplies, commercial and consumer printers, commercial and consumer desktops and consumer notebooks partially offset by growth in commercial notebooks.

Title Three-dimensional printer with cooled protective sheet separator
Abstract The three-dimensional printer has a print mechanism (100) with a separator (124) located before a recoater in a print direction (108). The separator is arranged to separate the protective cover from uppermost layer of deposited material to provide access for recoater to spread the layer of flowable green material on to uppermost layer of material on a material bed (102). The separator has a cooling surface (152) in thermal communication with uppermost layer of deposited material. The cooling surface is at a lower temperature than the temperature of temperature regulating element (146).

Title FEED FORWARD TERMS BASED ON CONTINUOUS MODEL | VORSTEUERUNGSBEDINGUNGEN AUF BASIS VON KONTINUIERLICHEM MODELL | TERMES D’ENTRAÎNEMENT EN AVANT BASÉS SUR UN MODÈLE CONTINU
Abstract The system (100) has a feed forward engine (106) for determining a feed forward term of a carriage based on a continuous model (112) that uses a target velocity value of a velocity profile, mass of a device conveyable by the carriage and friction force expected against the carriage. A feedback engine (108) determines a feedback term based on difference between the target velocity value and an actual velocity value of the carriage. A motion engine (102) causes the carriage to move based on the feed forward term and feedback term.

Abstract The medium has a set of instructions for determining whether a replaceable item previously sends a maximum number of unique authentication values of authentication values. The particular authentication value specified in a request is sent to a host device in response to determining that the maximum number of unique authentication values is not sent. The particular authentication value specified in the request is refused to send to the host device in response to determining that the maximum number of unique authentication values is sent.

Title System and method for fabricating three-dimensional objects using solid free-form fabrication | Verfahren und System zur Herstellung dreidimensionaler Gegenstände mittels eines “Solid Freeform” Verfahrens | Système et méthode de fabrication de formes libres solides pour la production d’objets tridimensionnels
Abstract Solid free-form fabrication of three-dimensional object involves depositing, in a defined region, a particulate blend including calcium phosphate source, reaction retardant and layered double hydroxide; and selectively ink-jetting a solubilizing binder onto a predetermined volume of the blend to form a pre-ceramic object in the predetermined volume. The binder includes wetting agents, humectants, acidic or basic pH modifiers, and surfactants.

Abstract A three-dimensional printing method involves selecting a coalescent dispersion for forming a three-dimensional object, and depositing a sinterable material. The material is heated. The coalescent dispersion is selectively applied on a portion of the material and exposed to infrared or near-infrared radiation to ensure infrared or near-infrared binding agent to absorb the radiation and to convert the absorbed radiation to thermal energy. The portion of the material is cured in contact with the infrared or near-infrared binding agent to form a first layer of the three-dimensional object.

Title GENERATION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECTS | ERZEUGUNG VON DREIDIMENSIONALEN OBJEKTEN | GÉNÉRATION D’OBJETS TRIDIMENSIONNELS
Abstract The method involves generating (302) a spatial arrangement of virtual objects within a virtual build volume and controlling (304) the additive manufacturing system to process successive layers of a build material corresponding to the virtual build volume. The request is received to modify the virtual build volume. The determination is made (306) whether the request is accepted based on the portion of the virtual build volume for modifying the virtual build volume. The additive manufacturing system is controlled to continue processing layers of the build material.

Title FABRICATING THREE DIMENSIONAL OBJECTS | HERSTELLUNG DREIDIMENSIONALER OBJEKTE | FABRICATION D’OBJETS TRIDIMENSIONNELS
Abstract The method involves forming a build layer comprising an area of solidified build material and an area of non-solidified build material. A layer of non-solidified build material is deposited. The build material is treated to form the area of solidified build material. An edge profile for the build layer is determined (501). Variation in height of the build layer is determined across a transition between the area of solidified build material and the area of non-solidified build material. A treatment setting is controlled for forming a subsequent build layer based on the edge profile.

Title BUILD MATERIAL CONTAINER | BAUMATERIALBEHÄLTER | RÉCIPIENT DE MATÉRIAU DE CONSTRUCTION
Abstract The additive manufacturing build material container (1) has a reservoir (3) to hold build material (11) including an upper portion (5) of more than half the height of the reservoir having relatively non-converging side walls (19). A lower portion (7) between the upper portion and a bottom has converging side walls (21) in a filled state. A build material outlet structure allows build material to exit the reservoir.
