Desktop Metal Delivers First Studio 3D Printing System

TCT Magazine reports on the recent delivery of Desktop Metal’s new Studio System 3D printing machines “to early pioneer customers including Google’s Advanced Technology and Products (ATAP) group.”

These Studio System 3D printers were only announced eight months ago, but the delivery is part of Desktop Metal’s Pioneers Program rollout.  Google’s ATAP group is very excited.  As David Beardsley, the group’s Manager explains, “this marks the first time our team will be able to use metal 3D printing for rapid prototyping of our hardware parts.  For prototyping, we have previously relied upon casting or using plastic 3D printing.  Now with the Studio System, our team will experience shorter lead times, faster product development cycles, and the benefits of functional prototypes in an array of metals on demand and in the lab.  We look forward to exploring and developing potential applications for many of our projects.”

The Studio System is office-friendly and includes a metal 3D printer, debinder, and sintering furnace, “and is said to be 10 times less expensive than existing technology today.”

CEO and Co-Founder of Desktop Metal, Ric Fulop, concluded: “Since the launch of our Pioneers Program, we have seen really passionate engineers and world-class companies begin to develop benchmark metal 3D printed parts with the Studio System.  We are extremely excited to begin shipping our Studio printer to these early pioneer customers and sales partners, including Google’s ATAP, and, over the next several months, will be working closely with each to learn more about how engineers want to use our system.”
