Desktop Metal Studio Fleet™
STUDIO SYSTEM FLEET
The Desktop Metal Studio Fleet Scales Production Without Custom Tooling or Production Facilities
The Desktop Metal Studio 3D Printer Fleet™ is custom and configurable metal 3D printing solution for producing complex metal parts in low-mid volume. 3D Print with 5x the throughput and a fraction of the cost of comparable options.
The nozzle is used to mix two dense, ceramic slurries. It then directs flow and defines the shape of extrusion. The application calls for a complex loft design, and a rather low capacity. Due to the strength, stiffness, and thermal resistance requirements, the extruder nozzle is required to be made of metal.
Internal 3D printing has grown up to four times quicker, with a cost reduced by 90% compared to CNC machining or selective laser melting (SLM).Rather than extrusion honing, parts can be simply sanded in the green state in order to have a successful critical surface finish on the nozzle’s interior.

Generally, flexures call for comprehensive, multi-step manufacturing processes. This includes wire EDM, water jet, brazing and so on – to accomplish the desired geometry. In order to iterate rapidly, as well as perform extensive testing, it’s crucial to ensure part performance.
In-house metal 3D printing gives users the ability to create complex geometries, without sacrificing impact on cost or time, as well as rapid iteration and testing at quantities needed for effective validation.

The custom gear was created for a vintage lathe that is no longer in production. Because of frequent use and high loads, the part is susceptible to wear. In order to machine the gear at volume due to broaching or hobbing in prohibitively costly and can also be time consuming. This ends in longer downtime until the replacement gear is available.
In order to meet the necessary strength and requirements, the lathe gear must be made of metal. In-house metal 3D printing with a custom hardware configuration expedites the production of replacement gears at a crucial reduction in cost-per-part.
