Desktop Metal has now installed more than 1,100 3D printing systems for metal components worldwide – more than 80% of which are direct metal 3D printing systems.

Among sand 3D printing systems, which are used for the final production of digital metal castings, more than half of the installed systems are now located at multi-system sites dedicated to high-throughput mass production applications. A significant number of metal binder jet systems are also being used to print technical ceramics, most often silicon carbide.

“As the highest throughput process in 3D printing, binder jetting is the additive manufacturing technology that will truly take the industry into mass production at high volumes,” said Ric Fulop, Founder, and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Our 3D printing systems are already being used to manufacture powertrain components, automotive interiors, oil and gas, food processing equipment, hydraulics, and some of the most advanced aerospace and nuclear parts.”

Desktop Metal offers a leading portfolio of binder jet 3D printing systems, backed by one of the most experienced binder jet teams in the industry. In addition to Desktop Metal’s binder jet systems for the production of metal and ceramics, the company’s ExOne brand offers world-leading sand binder jet systems for digital metal casting, and the company’s Forust brand offers turnkey binder jet printing of upcycled wood waste.

The company’s portfolio of mass production solutions for metal 3D printing includes the Production System P-50 (featuring Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) technology, the X160Pro (one of the largest binder jet systems for the production of both metal and ceramics, featuring Triple Advanced Compaction Technology (ACT)), the S-Max Pro (for sand casting molds and cores for aluminum and ferrous metal castings), the S-Max Flex (an affordable system for digital sand castings), the Production System P-1 (for serial production), the InnoventX ( one of the best-selling metal binder jet systems in academia), and the Shop System and Studio System.
