New Options for Use of Desktop Metal AM MachinesAugust 31, 2022
Desktop Metal, Inc. announced two use-upgrade packages for its metal binder jet Shop System: Shop System+ and Shop System Pro.
The Shop System+ package enables high-production users to access Desktop Metal-engineered powders and binders at a discount, reducing the running costs of their additive manufacturing (AM) operations and improving their part costs to drive a faster return on investment, explain Desktop Metal officials. The Shop System Pro package includes all the benefits of the Shop System+ package as well as additional process flexibility through features such as custom printing and spreading parameters as well as bidirectional printing for the Shop System printer, and custom sintering profiles for the Desktop Metal furnace. This package, according to company officials, is ideal for high-production users with powder metallurgy expertise who seek to optimize their running costs, and enable specific applications or cost structures by leveraging proprietary or third-party powders.
The turnkey Shop System includes a binder jetting printer with 1600-native-dpi resolution and five-times nozzle redundancy; drying oven for hardening green parts prior to depowdering; powder station for depowdering parts with built-in powder recycling; sintering furnace; integrated powder-handling accessories and workflow; Desktop Metal-engineered binders and powders; and software for build preparation and sintering simulation.
Desktop Metal will display Shop System models at IMTS 2022, September 12-17 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
