Desktop Metal, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, has received a $9 million order from a major German automaker for its Binder Jetting (BJT) Additive Manufacturing machines for the mass production of powertrain components.

This is the second order from the same automaker in fewer than twelve months, bringing the total amount of production AM machines purchased to $16.9 million to support digitally cast powertrain components for a popular car line.

“The Additive Manufacturing industry continues to grow for mass production applications, with the most innovative companies in the world leading the way,” stated Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Our team is working with a significant number of global automotive OEMs to expand adoption of our differentiated AM technologies for end-use car components, and this most recent order further demonstrates our customer’s success changing the way they make products and supports team DM’s vision for Additive Manufacturing 2.0.”
