Desktop Metal’s 3D printer makes metal manufacturing less messy

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Metal fabrication with traditional processes like injection molding, can be noisy, create welding fumes and exhaust, and require the use of lots of chemicals by workers. Desktop Metal's new additive manufacturing method uses FDM techniques that are safer and easier to work with.

Desktop Metal

Desktop Metal is reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts - from prototyping through mass production.

Desktop Metal was started to address a problem—how to make metal 3D printing accessible for engineering teams. In 2013, CEO Ric Fulop began collaborating with world-leading experts in materials science, engineering, and 3D printing. Their work together over the course of two years drew multiple independent inventions together to form the basis for Desktop Metal’s technology:
