Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, reports that its Shop System™, said to be the first metal Binder Jetting system designed for use in machine shops, has entered volume production and is now being shipped to customers globally.

The company states that installations are underway throughout North America, EMEA and APAC, at manufacturers such as Jade Creaction LDA in Portugal, Wall Colmonoy Limited in the UK, Alpha Precision Group in the USA, E.A.C. in France, and Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) in Hong Kong.

Launched at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, the Shop System is designed to bring metal Additive Manufacturing to machine and job shops with an affordable, turnkey solution said to achieve exceptional surface finish parts with high levels of feature detail at speeds up to ten times those of Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) Additive Manufacturing technologies. The Shop System can be used in the AM of end-use metal parts for a variety of industries, from automotive and oil & gas to consumer products and electronics.

“The Shop System offers the most cost-effective, highest resolution mid-volume production solutions in the industry,” stated Ric Fulop, CEO and co-founder of Desktop Metal. “Its high-speed, single-pass print engine introduces high-quality Binder Jetting to an entirely new market of machine shops, casting foundries, and powder metal component suppliers.”

“With the Shop System, engineers and plant operators can now eliminate many of the constraints previously imposed by traditional manufacturing methods, like CNC machining, and achieve affordable, reliable, and flexible batch production of complex parts,” he concluded.
