Desktop Metal

The Process

Powered by Single Pass Jetting
The Production system is based on a new approach to metal 3D printing—Single Pass Jetting (SPJ). Created by the inventors of the binder jetting and the single pass inkjet processes, Single Pass Jetting builds metal parts in a matter of minutes instead of hours.

Single Pass Jetting is bi-directional. Desktop Metal combined all the necessary steps for printing so that whenever there is movement, there is printing. Two full-width print bars containing over 32,000 jets work in conjunction with powder spreaders to spread powder and print in a single quick pass across the build area, jetting millions of droplets per second.

High Density Nesting
Unlike laser-based processes which weld parts to a build plate, parts created by the Production system are surrounded by loose powder, enabling the full use of the build envelope and higher productivity per build. Sophisticated software will arrange parts to maximize the build area in all axes.

Material Options

Desktop Metal’s unique Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) technology will be optimized to work with a wide range of Metal Injection Molding (MIM) alloys.
