Desktop Metal Production System
Introducing the Desktop Metal Production System. To manufacture metal 3D printed parts at scale, Desktop Metal has launched the fastest 3D printing system for mass production of high resolution metal parts today, the DM Production System. Using new, proprietary Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) technology, the Production System is 100 times faster than today’s laser-based additive manufacturing systems. For customers, the Production System dramatically reduces the cost-per-part when compared with today’s laser-based systems, for the first time making it competitive with mass production techniques like casting.
Watch how the DM Production System works
100x Faster - Breakthrough Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) process delivers speeds up to 8200 cm3/hr–100x faster than laser-based systems. With zero-tooling needed, it's the fastest way to manufacture complex metal parts.
20x Lower Cost - Low-cost MIM powder, high throughput, and simple post-processing deliver per-part costs that are competitive with traditional manufacturing processes—and up to 20x lower than today’s metal 3D printing systems.
Powered by Single Pass Jetting - The Production System is based on a new approach to metal 3D printing—Single Pass Jetting (SPJ). Created by the inventors of the binder jetting and the single pass inkjet processes, Single Pass Jetting builds metal parts in a matter of minutes instead of hours.
Single Pass Technology - Single Pass Jetting is bi-directional. We combined all the necessary steps for printing so that whenever there is movement, there is printing. Two full-width print bars containing over 32,000 jets work in conjunction with powder spreaders to spread powder and print in a single quick pass across the build area, jetting millions of droplets per second.
High Density Nesting - Unlike laser-based processes which weld parts to a build plate, parts created by the Production System are surrounded by loose powder, enabling the full use of the build envelope and higher productivity per build. Sophisticated software will arrange parts to maximize the build area in all axes.
Competitive Cost-per-part - The Production System is ideal for the production of complex, high-performance metal parts at high volumes. Since no tooling is needed, it can outperform traditional manufacturing processes like casting while adding major benefits of additive manufacturing like just-in-time production and mass customization.
