Fraunhofer IAPT and Desktop Metal collaborate on speciality materials for the Studio System+

November 23, 2018

The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Additive Production Technologies (IAPT), Hamburg, Germany, has announced a strategic collaboration with Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, to jointly develop speciality materials for use with Desktop Metal’s Studio System+ for metal Additive Manufacturing.

As part of the collaboration, Desktop Metal will provide its Studio System+ to Fraunhofer IAPT with the ability to customise materials and parameter sets for respective clients. Fraunhofer IAPT will offer its services to its own clients, as well as Desktop Metal customers, using the Studio System+, while Desktop Metal will also lead the manufacturing, selling and marketing of new, jointly-developed materials, alloys, or other consumables.

The Studio SystemTM is designed to make metal AM more accessible, enabling design and engineering teams to make metal parts faster, without the need for special facilities, dedicated operators or expensive tooling. In September 2018, the company introduced the Studio System+, which offers added functionality to print small metal parts with higher resolution, in addition to other improvements.
