KITECH partners with Desktop Metal to further South Korean Additive Manufacturing

December 21, 2021

In an effort to accelerate the industrialisation and adoption of Additive Manufacturing within South Korea, the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH), Cheonan, has installed a Binder Jetting (BJT) Shop System™ and Production System™ P-1 from Desktop Metal, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. KITECH plans to leverage Desktop Metal’s solutions to manufacture components at industrial scale volumes, and develop new materials for a variety of AM applications.

“We at KITECH are very excited to partner with Desktop Metal on the installation of its industry-leading metal AM solutions,” stated Dr Chung-Soo Kim, Project Manager and Senior Researcher at the 3D Printing Manufacturing Process Center, KITECH. “Metal Binder Jetting is disruptive to most other metal AM technologies because of its ability to produce components at unprecedented speeds and low costs. The adoption of Binder Jetting will change the development environment in the Additive Manufacturing industry in South Korea.”

Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal, concluded, “Metal Binder Jetting is ripe for adoption in Asia-Pacific, and we are honoured to partner with KITECH to further scale the technology in South Korea. With our shared vision, the installation of these binder jet solutions will serve as a catalyst for innovation, development and commercialisation of AM 2.0 technologies in the region, and accelerate the transformation of the manufacturing industry worldwide.”
