Since its launch in November 2019, the Shop System™ has been the world’s best-selling metal binder jet system. This turnkey metal 3D printing system is an affordable, closed-material printer that delivers reliable results with optimized powders, proven parameters, and Live Sinter simulation and scanning software. achieves exceptional surface finish parts with rich feature detail at speeds up to 10 times those of legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies. Significantly, the Shop System achieves exceptional surface finish parts with rich feature detail at speeds up to 10 times those of legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies.
Now, Desktop Metal is expanding the lineup of this successful platform with two new system configurations: the Shop System+ and the Shop System PRO, which give power users more flexibility and control over operating costs and machine parameters.
The Shop System+ package enables high-production users to access Desktop Metal-engineered powders and binders at a discount to MSRP. Therefore, their additive manufacturing operations’ running costs are reduced, and their part costs are improved to drive a faster return on investment.
Shop System PRO
The Shop System Pro package is ideal for high-production users with powder metallurgy expertise who seek to optimize their running costs and enable specific applications or cost structures by leveraging proprietary or third-party powders. It includes all the benefits of the Shop System+ package and additional process flexibility through new features such as:
- custom printing and spreading parameters
- bi-directional printing for the Shop System Printer and
- custom sintering profiles for the Desktop Metal furnace.
“Customers love the affordability, quality, and reliability of the Shop System, and the Desktop Metal team is excited to expand on this successful platform,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “The Shop System has become a global success, and we’ve really taken a sinter-based production process that used to require specialized knowledge and made it accessible on many levels. In addition to being affordable, our software and controlled powder and binder supply chain have made 3D printing metal parts easy and reliable.”
