3D Printing, Desktop Metal

Introducing Desktop Metal's Studio Fleet

By Maria Alvarez on September 20, 2018

Built to scale, the new Studio Fleet leverages Studio System+ technology, including a software-controlled workflow and stackable shelving for batch processing. For the first time, on-demand metal 3D printing will deliver accessible and scalable manufacturing that adapts to diverse business needs, part requirements, production volumes and cost constraints.

With customization options, Studio Fleet can deliver up to 5x the throughput of the original three-part system (one printer, one debinder and one furnace) for only twice the investment. 

Base configuration (1:1:1)

The standard single-unit Studio System+ with on printer, one debinder and one furnace. 

Studio Fleet with 3x the thorughput

 

3x the thorughput (3:1:1)

Three printers, one debinder and one furnace that will yield a 200 percent increase in throughput for only a 50 percent increase in system cost.

5x the thorughput (5:2:1)

Five printers, two debinders and one furnace that will yield a 400 percent increase in throughput for only a 100 percent increase in system cost.

Production Example: Flexures

Often, flexures require comprehensive, multi-step manufacturing processes—including wire EDM, water jet, brazing, etc.—to achieve the desired geometry. The ability to iterate quickly and perform extensive testing is critical to ensuring part performance. In-house metal 3D printing allows for the creation of complex geometries without impact on cost or time, as well as rapid iteration and testing at quantities needed for effective validation.
