Desktop Metal, the company committed to making 3D printing accessible to engineers and manufacturers, announces the world’s first desktop 3D printer to fabricate high-resolution parts with industrial-grade continuous fiber composite materials used in automated fiber placement (AFP) processes. Based on a new process called micro automated fiber replacement (μAFP), users can now print parts with a superior level of strength and stiffness, and in a broad range of materials, that traditionally required million-dollar AFP systems. This affordable new platform produces parts using materials that are two times stronger than steel at one-fifth the weight. Fiber 3D printers feature one of [...]

Characterized by its exceptional hot hardness, abrasion resistance, and stability in heat treatment, H13 is a tool steel widely used in both hot and cold work applications. Tool steel refers to a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are particularly well suited for toolmaking. Their suitability comes from their distinctive hardness, resistance to deformation, and their ability to hold a cutting edge at elevated temperatures. As a result, tool steels are well suited to shape other materials. H13 is a chromium molybdenum hot work steel well known for its exceptional hot hardness and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for [...]
Desktop Metal's Bound Metal Deposition technology brings metal 3D printing into the office environment, making low-cost prototyping of metal parts achievable as well as user-friendly and cost-effective. The Studio printer extrudes rods that have metal powder bound within wax and plastic to form the parts. The binders in these parts are then removed through a two-step process of debinding and sintering similar to metal injection molding; also known as MIM. Desktop Metal's Bound Metal Deposition platform will ultimately have access to a wide range of metals from the MIM industry and there are currently 30 materials in development. The materials [...]
https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/gw4al6zpky?embedType=iframe&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 Cimquest is excited to showcase one of our customers, Alpha Precision Group. Since their initial implementation of the Desktop Studio system just 8 months ago, they have created over 200 metal parts (100 of them unique). APG is excited about the value proposition of the technology and share how Bound Metal Deposition has impacted their business objectives through this informative video. Learn about some of the parts they have done thus far and why they are pleased with the results of their Desktop Metal Studio printer!

Desktop Metal recently added 316L stainless steel to their list of printable metals on the Studio System. Characterized by its corrosion resistance and performance at both high and low temperatures, 316L is a fully austenitic stainless steel ideal for harsh environments. Expert metallurgy is at the core of the Studio System, which was built to simplify even the most challenging aspects of metal fabrication—including easy material changes in under a minute. The introduction of 316L creates new opportunities for designers and engineers to prototype and produce parts for particularly demanding environments such as marine applications, chemical processing, and medical devices.
