Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) works on the Desktop Metal Production System which is based on a new approach to metal 3D printing designed for mass production, where users can build metal parts in a matter of hours instead of weeks.
Single Pass Jetting works with two full-width print bars containing over 32,000 jets that work together with powder spreaders to spread powder and print in a single quick pass across the build area, jetting millions of droplets per second to form high-resolution parts one layer at a time. Anti-sintering agents are then deposited, allowing the supports to easily fall off after the part is completed. Parts that have been safely printed in minutes instead of hours, are then sintered in the microwave-enhanced furnace.
With no tooling required, Single Pass Jetting is ideal for the production of complex, high-performance metal parts at high volumes. Users can also gain major benefits of additive manufacturing like just-in-time production and mass customization at a lower cost, as compared to traditional manufacturing processes.
