Desktop Metal

Desktop Metal changes the way we bring products to market with metal 3D Printing.

No more waiting around for machined or cast parts. The office-friendly metal 3D Printer enables you to iterate faster by printing highly complex metal parts without leaving the office. The Studio system is the only end-to-end metal 3D printing system that is cost-effective for engineering groups.

Studio System The Desktop Metal Studio system uses Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) a process which is similar to the safest, most widely used 3D Printing technology – FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling). The Studio printer printers works by extruding bound metal rods- similar to FDM. more info
Designed for after 3D Printing your part, Desktop Metal have designed a microwave-enhanced sintering furnace. It is fully automated incorporating closed loop thermal control and compactly sized to fit through an office door. The furnace itself combines conventional heating elements with high-powered microwaves to sinter printed parts, after primary binder is removed. The furnace then heats the part to temperatures near melting, causing the metal powder to densify.
The Studio system allows you to print parts with superior mechanical properties. Similar to Metal Injection Molding (MIM), the system leverages bulk sintering to achieve high densities, with parts performing similar to wrought alloys.
 
In order to make the 3D Printing process even easier, you can remove the supports by hand! Proprietary Seperable Supports make it possible to remove parts by hand. Unlike current metal 3D Printing systems on the market no wire EDM or machining is needed because supports are not bonded to parts.
 
Desktop metal offer precision printing by using encoded ball screws rather than belts for their motion control system. Combine this with automated bed-levelling and a heated build area, the Studio system delivers excellent geometric fidelity and build success.
Hand-removal of supports, fast material changes & web-based software are just a few ways Desktop Metal are making 3D Printing more accessible.

Desktop Metal designed their systems to use the same MIM (Metal Injection Molding) materials. This opens up an ecosystem of low-cost, high-quality alloys with a mature supply chain and well-studied process controls.

Laser-based systems require specially formulated, cost-prohibitive metal powders. Desktop Metal use metal powder with a wide particle size distribution, enabling much lower materials costs.

The range of materials include:

  • Alloy Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Carbide
  • Copper
  • Heavy Alloy
  • Low Expansion
  • Super Alloy
  • Stainless Steel
  • Magnetics
  • High Performance Steel
  • Titanium
  • Tool Steel

Desktop Metal materials scientists are some of the best in the world. Working closely with hardware and software teams, they are constantly developing and validating new alloys for the systems.
