The First Ever Office-Friendly
Metal 3D Printer
Just A Few Of The Problems Desktop Metal Addresses
Reduce Time Spent Waiting for Parts
Most engineers we talk to have to wait 2-12 weeks for the in-house shop to get them a prototype part. If you’re outsourcing part(s) to get them faster, you could be looking at a 5-10x markup.
Free up Production Capacity
Most manufacturing businesses schedule their equipment to be running production over 90% of the time. There is no extra capacity to make jigs, fixtures, and metal prototypes.
Engineers Can Easily Be Trained
1 out of 4 manufacturing businesses has turned down new business because of a labor shortage. Engineers can easily be trained to use Desktop Metal to produce parts. That way skilled machinists can focus on value-added work.
The Answer is Finally Here.
Adding a Desktop Metal 3D Printer to your workflow gets prototype parts to engineers faster. Not only does this speed up product development, but it can get customers sample parts faster, leading to more businesses.
Fast Jigs, Fixtures, and Tools
Sometimes, tools cannot be made of plastic. Some manufacturing processes have high temperatures and/or harsh chemicals that would destroy plastic fixtures. Metal 3D printing allows these jigs fixtures, and tools to be made quickly, without interrupting production, or skilled machinists.
LEARN ABOUT METAL 3D PRINTING
Desktop Metal 3D Printer
– The Studio System + printer was designed for quick installation and a simplified user experience. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the building block from which Desktop Metal developed Bound Metal Deposition (BMD). The BMD process addressed the long held industry struggle to find an office friendly system while providing unmatched reliability and repeatability. Laser-based systems that melt powder carry additional ventilation/respiratory hazards.
B BMD uses polymer bound metal rods, eliminating the safety requirements normally associated with metal 3D printing. The Studio System + separates itself from competitors by allowing users to create lightweight parts through the use of closed cell infill and hollow cavities. Previously unavailable with other technologies. High-resolution nozzles allow for greater detail and improved dimensional accuracy.
Metal 3D printing has never been easier or more accessible with Desktop Metal’s groundbreaking office friendly technology.
Desktop Metal Debinder
The Studio System +™ Debinder is the second stage of the metal additive manufacturing process. Parts here are given a bath in a specially formulated “debind fluid”. This fluid removes any polymer binding material and creates open pores in the part which is now ready for sintering.
The Studio System +™ Debinder uses a process that ensures end users do not come in contact with any harmful fluids or gasses. Keeping in line with the goal of providing an office friendly solution. Automatic distillation and recycling of fluid means there is no need to refill the reservoir after each cycle.
Parts go in dry. Parts come out dry.
Desktop Metal Furnace
The Studio System +™ Furnace is able to reach temperatures of up to 1,400c°(2,552f°) which cleanly removes all remaining secondary binder. What you’re left with is fused metal particles with part densities up to 99.8%.
The furnace is connected to the other parts of the solution so that the user works from an automated system where shrinkage, debind time and furnace temperature are all calculated. What sets the Desktop Metal solution apart from the rest is that all components are designed to be user and office friendly, accommodating the engineers of today and tomorrow.
