Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, has selected Morris Group, Inc., Windsor, Connecticut, USA, as a top tier ‘Diamond Partner’ supplier of metal Additive Manufacturing systems in thirty US states. Desktop Metal’s Studio System™ will be the first Additive Manufacturing system Morris Group, traditionally a CNC machining supplier, has made available to its customers.
“We are very pleased to represent Desktop Metal and excited to introduce this ground-breaking 3D printing technology to metal cutting manufacturers in our distribution area,” stated Brad Morris, President and CEO of Morris Group. “Our organisation brings more than seventy-five years of manufacturing experience, knowledge and customer support to the table.”
The Studio System uses Bound Metal Deposition (BMD), a proprietary process, to build near net shape parts. The Studio System features safe-to-handle, swappable media cartridges and quick release print heads for seamless material changes, and was designed for use with a variety of materials from steels and copper to super alloys like Inconel.
“We are excited to partner with Morris Group to bring our metal AM solutions to new markets,” commented Ric Fulop, CEO and Co-Founder of Desktop Metal. “Through this partnership, manufacturers can leverage the same trusted source to purchase and service the highly complementary technologies of CNC machine tools and metal Additive Manufacturing that together deliver the dimensional accuracy and speed needed to produce reliable, precision metal parts.”
“We researched many different Additive Manufacturing technologies over the past several years and believe that Desktop Metal offers the best metal 3D printing tool for our customers’ needs,” added Morris. “We look forward to introducing the Studio System and other Desktop Metal products to the market as they are developed.”
All machine tool distributors owned by Morris Group currently offer the Studio System. Demo systems will be exhibited at several geographic locations throughout the Morris Group distribution network. Additionally, demo systems will be displayed at AMTS in Dayton, Ohio in Technical Equipment’s booth and at SOUTH-TEC in Greenville, South Carolina in Morris South’s booth.
