Desktop Metal Studio System 3D Printer
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.
Lasers and powders are completely eliminated to make the Studio system safe for any facility. Unlike other metal 3D printing systems, there is no 3rd party equipment or special facilities required – just power and an internet connection.
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.
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.
