Cobalt Chrome F75 (DM Shop System)

A Cobalt-Chrome Alloy with extraordinary corrosion resistance

Cobalt Chrome (F75) is an alloy of Cobalt and Chrome for use in many dental applications as well as in the manufacturing of other industrial applications such as fuel nozzles or turbine guide vanes.

Cobalt-Chrome (F75) – A multifunction validated metal alloy for commercial, industrial and dental manufacturing

Cobalt-Chrome (F75) is a metal alloy, validated by Desktop Metal® and Desktop Health®, for its use with Shop System™ in many industries, particularly the dental one as it requires custom metal applications and surgical guides.

Besides its use in the dental industry, CoCr (F75) is also used in many manufacturing applications ranging from jewelry to more complex industrial usages because it has great mechanical properties, such as corrosion resistance with high strength and wear resistance.

About Desktop Metal®’s Binder Jetting Technology™

The Shop System and the Production Systems are set to kick-start the new revolution in manufacturing, Additive Manufacturing 2.0. This brings along many benefits such s additive mass production of end-use parts, mass customization, and tooling-free manufacturing and so much more

The Binder Jetting Technology™ is at the heart of both systems and this technology enables additive manufacturing to compete with traditional mass-production methods by delivering a high printing speed. Because they’re built around inkjet print heads – binder jetting printers can produce parts as much as 100 times faster than laser powder bed fusion systems.

Complex geometries, including internal features ad channels, and the ability to unlock generative design to assembly consolidation are highly recognized as other great benefits of this innovative binder jetting technology.
