In order to further increase its presence in the 3D printing market, leading AM metal material manufacturer Carpenter Technology Corporation has entered into a supply relationship with Burlington, Massachusetts-based Desktop Metal utilizing more than 20 CarTech alloy grades to be used in Desktop Metal’s end-to-end metal 3D printing systems.

The powders will be used in premium materials cartridges. The new partnership reinforces Carpenter’s position as a leading global producer of specialty wire and powder metals for additive manufacturing.

“As we develop technology for next generation manufacturing solutions, it is essential to collaborate with innovative partners,” said Tony R. Thene, Carpenter Technology’s Chief Executive Officer. “Leveraging the combined capabilities of Desktop Metals and Carpenter Technology, we will undoubtedly bring enhanced value to this rapidly growing market,” he added.

Carpenter Technology Corporation is a leading producer and distributor of premium specialty alloys, including titanium alloys, nickel and cobalt based superalloys, stainless steels, alloy steels and tool steels. Carpenter’s high-performance CarTech alloy materials and advanced process solutions are an integral part of critical applications used within the aerospace, transportation, medical and energy markets, among other markets.  Building on its history of innovation, Carpenter’s powder technology capabilities support a range of next-generation products and manufacturing techniques, including additive manufacturing and 3D Printing.

“We are excited to include Carpenter Technology in our materials catalog,” said Ric Fulop, CEO and Co-Founder of Desktop Metal. “When you a have a supplier whose stellar reputation for material quality, technical expertise, and market diversity is known throughout the industry, it will only help our customers succeed in the metal 3D printing market.”

The deal is particularly significant for both companies as it focuses on implementing metal AM for production of much larger batches than have been considered so far, at much lower costs, with the goal of entering larger consumer markets such as automotive, not jsut for prototyping but for actual production – which is exactly the goal that Desktop Metal has set out to reach.

As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
