Desktop Metal is accelerating the transformation of manufacturing with end-to-end metal 3D printing solutions. Founded in 2015 by leaders in advanced manufacturing, metallurgy, and robotics, the company is addressing the unmet challenges of speed, cost and quality to make metal 3D printing an essential tool for global engineers and manufacturers. Desktop Metal offers two systems that cover the full product lifecycle, from prototyping to mass production. The Studio System is the first office-friendly metal 3D printing system. Its three-part solution automates metal 3D printing and enables rapid prototyping right in an engineer’s office or on the shop floor. The Production System, created by the inventors of binder jetting and single-pass inkjet technologies, is the world’s fastest metal printer, delivering the lowest cost per part needed to compete with traditional manufacturing with the highest capacity of any metal 3D printing system available.

How the Auto Industry Is Turning to Metal 3D Printing to Achieve Breakthroughs in Scale and Scope
Date(s): 05/23/2019, 11:45 AM - 12:10 PM
Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder at Desktop Metal
Additive Manufacturing – or metal 3D printing – has the potential to profoundly change the way companies produce metal parts, becoming a cornerstone to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Until now, 3D printing systems have been too expensive and slow, and limited to a few materials. Nearly everything businesses make today – from zippers to propellers to drills – is made of metal or composites of metals and other materials. Today, industries from aerospace to medical and consumer electronics are turning to metal 3-D printing to transform their manufacturing for greater efficiency and to capitalize on real-time competition. This session will explore the evolution of metal 3D printing technology for the automotive industry designed for mass production at speeds 100x faster than current manufacturing methods, unpacking the promises of speed, quality, and accessibility. Through real applications, hear how automotive companies at the forefront of adopting this technology are improving and printing complex forming techniques at scale, and the ways metal 3D printing is propelling these companies forward to, for the first time, consolidate assembly lines, abbreviate supply chains, and customize mass production to remain competitive and profitable.
Application Discovery - Evaluating Real Use-Cases for In-Office Metal 3D Printing
Date(s): 05/22/2019, 3:30 - 4:00 PM
Vice President of Marketing at Desktop Metal
Metal 3D printing technology has the power to redefine the way companies design and produce metal parts. Advances in metal 3D printing technologies are enabling engineers and designers to make functional prototypes in the office, on-demand and without the need for special facilities or operators. This session explores the latest advances in office metal 3D printing for prototyping and low volume production through real customer applications. From the architecture and components to the performance and cost-per-part benefits, hear insights into the many ways companies are integrating metal 3D printing into their product development to improve upon part properties, performance, fabrication times and costs. This session offers a cross-industry view of best-fit applications as a solution to streamline functional part printing for prototyping, jigs and fixtures and tooling. Compare how in-office 3D metal printers support the rapid development of high-density parts by reducing process steps against other more traditional technologies and processes. Understand how software automates and sets controls throughout the printing process based upon specified parameters and constraints, making the hard decisions for the user. For those evaluating metal 3D printing for on-demand accessibility to part production, this session will enlighten and inspire.
