Additive Manufacturing addresses critical industry needs

Machine shops are financially dependent on constantly attracting new customers with machining needs. 3D printers enable machine shops to expand business operations into new avenues of growth and recurring income streams.

Additive Manufacturing, with tooling-free production, eliminates the significant disadvantages and barriers to innovation inherent in conventional manufacturing, allowing for faster iterations and a better final product.

3D Printing Systems from Desktop Metal

— 01

Shop System

Designed with the modern machine shop in mind, the Shop System™ is built to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Produce parts with superior surface finish and resolution versus laser-based 3D printing systems at a fraction of the cost.

The Shop System™ from Desktop Metal introduces high quality binder jetting to an entirely new market of machine shops. Shops can now cost effectively 3D print end use metal parts with unparalleled speed and productivity.

High resolution printhead

The Shop System™ features the highest resolution single pass printhead in the market. With 1600x1600 dpi native (33% higher than the nearest competitor), and over 670M drops per second, the Shop System™ delivers high-speed, high-resolution printing.

Unparalleled productivity

With a high-speed, single-pass print engine, Shop System™ produces high-quality metal parts 10x faster than laser powder bed fusion. Boasting speeds up to 700 cc/hr, the system is capable of producing up to 70 kg of metal parts per day—allowing you to print tens to hundreds of near-net shape parts each day.

No tooling required

The Shop System™ is a tooling-free manufacturing process. Change over to a new job at the press of a button and process multiple complex jobs simultaneously without the need for custom setups.

Adaptive print engine

Users don’t have to sacrifice feature detail or resolution for speed. Employing the smallest droplet size on the market (1.2 pL) and automated drop multiplexing up to 6 pL, the Shop System™ achieves superior surface finish, bleed control and rich feature detail at high speed.

Simplified post-processing

Parts on the Shop System™ print fully supported in their powder bed, and feature hand-removable sintering setters. Avoid hours of labor machining off support structures typical to laser-based systems and instead achieve customer-ready parts right out of the furnace.

End-to-end solution

The Shop System™ contains all pieces of equipment your machine shop needs to begin binder jetting—from print through sintering. With upgradable variable build volume configurations (4L, 8L, 12L, and 16L), the Shop System™ is designed to scale to your shop’s throughput.

3D printing on the manufacturing floor: volume production with no tooling!

Studio System 2

Desktop Metal's Studio System 2 was designed from the ground-up to fit into your team’s workflow. With no solvents, no loose metal powders or lasers and very little operator intervention required, the system makes it easy to start printing metal parts - no third-party equipment or special facilities required.

Using Bound Metal Deposition™ (BMD) process, making complex, high-performance metal parts has never been easier. Bound metal rods allow higher loading of metal powder to binder as they do not require the flexibility of a spooled filament.

Designed for the office

The Studio System 2 was designed from the ground-up to fit into your team’s workflow. With no solvents, no loose metal powders or lasers and very little operator intervention required, the system makes it easy to start printing metal parts - no third party equipment or special facilities required.

Easy, two-step processing

Making complex, high-performance metal parts has never been easier. Featuring a breakthrough two-step process, next-generation Separable Supports, and a software-controlled workflow, the Studio System 2 makes it simpler than ever to produce custom metal parts.

High-quality parts

Easily produce difficult-to-machine parts featuring complex geometry like undercuts and internal channels. Fabricate, the software at the heart of the Studio System, automates complicated metallurgical processes to produce high-quality parts with densities and feature accuracy similar to casting.

Key benefits

  • Easy, two-step processing
  • User-friendly software-controlled workflow
  • Patented smart Separable SupportsTM technology for quick post-processing
  • Qualified for eight materials
  • Designed for office-friendly printing
  • A trusted system used worldwide with success

Envision One

Rapid production of strong, fully isotropic hard plastic end-use parts. The ETEC Envision One features patented CDLM (continuous digital light manufacturing) technology, which provides the ability for continuous printing. With little to no delay between layers, the Envision One delivers exceptional speed, print resolution, surface finish, and part properties.

The Envision One leverages long-chain polymer chemistry to produce strong, stable parts. The result is isotropic parts suitable for end-use applications and capable of standing up to the most demanding conditions.
