DESKTOP METAL NOW SHIPPING THE WORLD’S FIRST OFFICE-FRIENDLY METAL 3D PRINTING SYSTEM TO COMPANIES THROUGHOUT EUROPE
The Studio System is designed to make metal 3D printing more accessible, enabling design and engineering teams to print metal parts faster, without the need for special facilities, dedicated operators, or expensive tooling.
The three-part solution, including printer, debinder and furnace, automates metal 3D printing by tightly integrating through Desktop Metal’s cloud- based software to deliver a seamless workflow for printing complex metal parts in-house—from digital file to sintered part. To date, Studio Systems worldwide have fabricated more than 10,000 parts, with applications ranging from functional prototyping of extruder nozzles and shock absorber pistons; to jigs & fixtures, including robotic end effectors and smartphone fixtures; to manufacturing tooling of zipper molds inserts and extrusion dies; and low volume production of gears and motor mounts.
Each of these benchmark parts has shown drastic cost reduction – some by as much as 90 percent relative to machining and selective laser melting (SLM) – as well as speed in fabrication, producing parts in days instead of weeks or months. Early Customer Applications and Highlights
