Desktop Metal, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, has announced a strategic partnership with Indo-US MIM Tec. Pvt. Ltd., a leading global manufacturer of Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) components headquartered in Bangalore, India. The agreement will see Indo-MIM become a full-service manufacturing partner for Desktop Metal, meeting the needs of customers looking for mass produced metal parts in quantities ranging from tens of thousands to one million.

Indo-MIM has MIM production facilities in both India and USA, as well as further sales offices in Europe and Asia. The company will deploy metal Additive Manufacturing at scale for its customers using Desktop Metal’s Production System, to be installed at its San Antonio, Texas, factory this summer.

In addition to Additive Manufacturing capacity, Indo-MIM will also offer customers consulting services and finishing processes, key to entering the production phase.

“This is a major step forward in the progress of Additive Manufacturing,” stated Krishna Chivukula, Jr., CEO of Indo-MIM. “As the world’s largest MIM house, we know our customers in automotive, aerospace and other key industries will reap the benefits of this new mass manufacturing technology. We are excited to partner with Desktop Metal to bring metal AM closer to those companies looking to achieve the speed, cost, and quality benefits to their businesses.”

“With the Production System now joining our state-of-the-art factories, we will be fully integrated to provide customers with a one-stop resource for the manufacturing of complex precision components and sub-assemblies with Additive Manufacturing,” he concluded.

The Production System is designed to print a broad range of alloys, including reactive metals such as titanium and aluminium. Designed to take advantage of MIM’s chemistry and powder supply chain, the Production System is said to offer access to a large and established ecosystem of high-quality alloys with a mature supply chain and well-studied controls.

“The synergies of our companies are profound – both Desktop Metal and Indo-MIM are deeply rooted in MIM technology and we share an unbridled commitment to accelerate the availability of industrial Additive Manufacturing technologies,” commented Ric Fulop, CEO and Co-founder of Desktop Metal. “This collaboration with Indo-MIM will help deliver the power and promise of our Production System to companies with diverse manufacturing needs and to shift the paradigm from prototyping to include full scale metal manufacturing.”
