Metal 3D printing has traditionally been out of reach for most companies because of their association with high costs and slow speed. But with the Studio System from Boston-based metal 3D printing maker, Desktop Metal, high-speed and high-performance metal 3D printing is now made more accessible to everyone in an office-friendly environment.
Utilizing Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) technology, a green part is formed first layer by layer through the extrusion method that’s similar to how Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology works, and is very brittle. Following debinding and sintering, it becomes a sturdy metal part with densities falling between 96-99% depending on alloy type.
Desktop Metal’s application engineer, Dave Belanger, demonstrates in a short video, the strong and sturdy properties of metal parts that are produced with the Studio System.
