NAME

Desktop Metal Studio System 3D Printer with FDM technology for metallic components

DESCRIPTION

The Desktop Metal Studio is a 3D metal printing installation composed by 3 steps: printing, debinding and sintering. The tecnologý is based in FDM where a green part is shaped by extruding bound metal rods (D-6 mm and 150 mm long bars composed by metal powder held together by polymer binder) in a process called Bound Metal Deposition. Once printed and debinded, parts are placed in the furnace. As the part is heated to temperatures near melting, binder is completly removed and metal particles fuse together causing the part to densify in a range of 97-99% and a volume reduction of 20%. The materials used are 17-4PH and 316L (stainless steels), Cr-Mo 4140 steel, H13 tool steel and copper.

MOST OUTSTANDING EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS

3D Studio System + printer +

The printer uses a process called Bound Metal Deposition™ (BMD™) where composite bound metal rods (D-6 mm and length of 150 mm) are heated and extruded onto the build plate, shaping a part layer-by-layer.
- Materials: 17-4PH and 316L (stainless steels), Cr-Mo 4140 steel, H13 tool steel and copper
- Maximum printing volume: 305x205x205 mm3
- Minimum layer height of 50 microns and standard of 100-220 microns
- Resolution: depending on the extrusion head

Studio System+ Debinder +

The piece printed in "green" is immersed in the debinder liquid to remove waxes or binder material from the piece obtaining a weight reduction of 4%

Studio System+ furnace +

Initially, the piece is heated in a range of temperatures (200º- 600ºC) for the total elimination of the binding agents. Then the temperature is increased (+ -1400ºC) to fuse the dust particles and obtain a dense piece (97-99%).
