The Shop System is the world’s first metal binder jetting system designed for machine shops. It is powerful enough to produce one batch of parts every six to ten hours, printing up to 70kg of steel every day. It will help save you money by removing tooling costs, speeding up production and freeing up CNC machine capacity for other jobs. The quality of the printed parts is very high, enabling them to co-exist with parts produced through machining. With a resolution of 1600 dpi, the Shop System achieves superior surface finish and rich feature detail at high speed.
Batch production of parts that are ready for end-use
Hand-removable sintering setters mean there is no need to machine supports away, saving time
Prints ten times faster than rival systems
70,000 nozzles have built-in 5x redundancy to prevent print issues and problems caused by blocked jets
Available in 4L, 8L, 12L and 16L sizes
Each batch of parts can be produced in 6-12 hours
Achieve fast speeds and intricate detail with no compromises
Effective, smart working: Fast production of tens to hundreds of near-net shape parts so machinist time can be best used for skilled work refining critical features
The Desktop Metal Shop System consists of three parts: the printer, powder station and furnace. In the printer, the machine spreads metal powder across the bed and jets a binding agent to bond it together, layer by layer. In a short space of time, the whole build volume is filled with bound parts surrounded by loose powder.
Once the build is finished, it is placed into the powder station for depowdering, helped by a handheld air pick. Loose powder is recovered for recycling.
After that, the depowdered parts are put into the furnace for sintering. An external gas hook-up means temperatures reach 1,400 degrees Celsius, making the final part reliable and smooth.
