Desktop Metal 3D Printer- Studio System+

An end-to-end solution

The Studio System+ from Desktop Metal is a three-part solution that automates metal 3D printing. Tightly integrated through Desktop Metal’s cloud-based software, it delivers a seamless workflow for printing complex metal parts in-house, from digital file to sintered part.

Description

Office-friendly desktop metal 3D printing

The Studio System+™ is designed as an end-to-end solution and is the only way to print complex metal parts in-house. The Bound Metal Deposition technology enables engineers and designers who can now fabricate accurate and repeatable parts.

Unlike laser-based systems that melt metal powder selectively, the printer uses an extrusion process where bound metal rods are heated and then extruded to shape a “green” part layer-by-layer.

The ”green” part is immersed in Desktop Metal proprietary debinding fluid, where the primary binder is dissolved and removed to create an open-pore channel structure throughout the part before sintering begins.

The remaining binder is removed as the part is heated to a near melting temperature in the furnace. The high temperature sees the fusing together of metal particles, allowing for densification of up to 96 – 99.8% to form a strengthened part.

KEY FEATURES
10x Cheaper

The Studio System+ is up to 10 times cheaper compared to similar laser-based systems in the market. It’s the only metal 3D printing system that is cost-effective for engineering teams.
Safe for the office

The Studio System+ is safe for any facility, with no lasers or powders involved. Only the printer and an internet connection are required for operation as compared to other systems.
