The collection is the first time that Desktop Metal will feature applications in its expanded Team DM portfolio, which now includes metal, polymer, elastomer, ceramic, composite and recycled wood 3D printing solutions, following several acquisitions.
Examples of applications in the automotive, aerospace, energy, medical and consumer goods sectors will illustrate the advantages of additive manufacturing, such as speed, part consolidation, l lightweighting and new innovations, including improved performance
One of the highlights of the collection is a steel printed hydraulic valve binder jet by Desktop Metal’s Aidro brand, offering a 60% weight reduction and improved performance.
A range of Additive Manufacturing (AM) 2.0 Desktop Metal printing platforms will also be on display at the show, led by the Production System™ P-1 – a gateway printer to the Production System P-50, the fastest system to the world in 3D print metal parts to scale
Other printing platforms on display include the Desktop Metal Shop System™, the ETEC Xtreme 8K photopolymer DLP printer, the Desktop Health Einstein™ printer for dental professionals and the ExOne S- robotic sand printer. Max® Flex for foundries.
Together, Desktop Metal’s parts collection and printers demonstrate how AM 2.0 is poised to reduce supply chain risks through its ability to produce high-quality, competitively priced final parts and tools at the demand, while delivering sustainability and innovation benefits.
BOSTON, May 11, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM), a global leader in additive manufacturing technologies for mass production, today announced it will showcase a landmark collection of more than 300 pieces 3D-printed production platforms May 17-19 in Detroit at RAPID+TCT, North America’s largest and most influential AM event, alongside production-capable printing platforms for metals, polymers, elastomers, ceramics, composites and recycled wood materials.

Desktop Metal’s collection of parts and printers, which will greet attendees at booth #3301 at the main entrance to the show, shows how the AM industry is ready to respond to the AM Forward initiative recently announced by President Joe Biden to accelerate the adoption of industrial 3D printing. . Biden spoke in detail on May 6 about the power of 3D printing to modernize the country’s manufacturing infrastructure and bring down prices by locally producing high-demand parts with this technology.
“3D printing technology is amazing. It can reduce parts delivery times by up to 90%…” Biden said. “All of this helps reduce the cost of making goods here in America. … These technologies are revolutionizing the way of life; they’re keeping prices low for businesses and families. So let’s make them in America again. Let’s build the future here in America.”
As a global leader in the additive manufacturing industry, Desktop Metal’s mission is to enable production 3D printing with accessible AM 2.0 technologies so businesses of all sizes can deliver parts and products faster. more advanced, while producing more sustainably and closer to the point of end use.
Desktop Metal’s new Team DM brand portfolio has been carefully curated over the past year to fulfill this mission. By combining truly production-ready 3D printing technologies, such as binder jetting and digital light processing, with high-performance materials and select applications, the Desktop Metal team is passionate about driving the next generation of additive manufacturing.
“The COVID pandemic has exposed weaknesses in our current manufacturing infrastructure, and we commend the Biden administration for working to address them. Now is the time for manufacturers of all sizes to take a fresh look at low cost and high quality delivered by today’s businesses using additive manufacturing technologies, which can reduce supply chain risks and provide many other benefits,” said Ric Fulop, co-founder and CEO of Desktop. Metal.”With today’s AM technologies, each country can have its own self-sustaining manufacturing industry with parts that can be shipped digitally and printed quickly.”
Production 3D printing exhibited at RAPID+TCT
While Desktop Metal will showcase a variety of AM 2.0 platforms at the show, one of the highlights of the portfolio will be the P-1 Production System, which was released at the height of the COVID pandemic and will be showcased for the first time in a public form at RAPID.
A high-speed 3D printing system for end-use metal parts, the P-1 was designed as a gateway to the high-end production system P-50 – the world’s fastest system for printing parts large-scale 3D metallics. The P-1 shares the same patent-pending Single Pass Jetting™ (SPJ) technology as the P-50, along with common software and electronics for easy upgradeability.
The P-1 is now used for a variety of development and mass production applications by a growing number of customers around the world, including Ford Motor Co., Indo-MIM, Formula 3D Corporation, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU ) and Cetim, the Technical Center for Mechanical Industries in France.
Two new videos released today feature small manufacturers using the technology for today’s production, including FreeFORM Technologies, a metal parts manufacturing startup in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, and Christian Tse Designs & Manufacturing , a luxury design and manufacturing house in Monrovia, California.
The production system is one of many Desktop Metal printing platforms that relies on binder jetting technology, which is widely considered to be one of the 3D printing methods with the potential to deliver additive manufacturing. mass production at high speeds and at competitive prices.
Nearly a dozen metals are now qualified for printing on P-1 and P-50 production systems, delivering excellent part quality and surface finish, with mechanical properties of sintered parts that meet or exceed applicable industry standards, and final part densities that can reach or exceed 99 percent. To date, the list of qualified materials includes:
Stainless steels including 17-4 PH, 316L, 420, 440C and DM HH SS
Tool steels including D2 and S7
Low alloy steels, including 4140
Nickel superalloys, including IN625
Precious metals, including silver and gold
Ti64 and 6061 in development
