Desktop Metal, Boston, Massachusetts, USA, has expanded its partnership with CNC software provider SolidCAM, headquartered in Schramberg, Germany, who will now distribute Desktop Metal’s Additive Manufacturing machines in the USA, UK, Israel and India. The company is already a sales partner in Germany for Desktop Metal’s AM machines.

In addition to selling Desktop Metal’s AM solutions in the new locations, new CNC + AM Center of Excellence showrooms are currently being completed in Pennsylvania, USA, Germany, and the UK to demonstrate how Desktop Metal’s AM 2.0 solutions complement traditional subtractive machining technology and workflows. Additional facilities are scheduled for completion in California, Israel and India.

“The Desktop Metal team is delighted to announce an expansion of our relationship with SolidCAM, a brand that is long trusted by machinists worldwide,” stated Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “This expanded partnership means that more CNC professionals will learn how easy it is to 3D print and sinter complex designs on our Studio System and Shop System metal AM offerings, freeing up capacity on CNC equipment, as well as machinist’s time. Additive manufacturing technology is truly complementary to machining, and we’re eager to deliver that message to the market in partnership with SolidCAM.”

Dr Emil Somekh, founder and CEO of SolidCAM, commented, “Our Schramberg Technology Center has already added a Desktop Metal Studio System to its current CNC machines, and we’re in the process of adding more Studio System and Shop System printers to our facilities worldwide so we can demonstrate how this Additive Manufacturing technology is complementary to CNC machining equipment.”

“The growing impact of Additive Manufacturing has been well documented,” he continued. “During the COVID-19 epidemic, 3D printing played a critical role in repairing vulnerabilities in supply chains, especially in the medical sector, and we think it can help improve the throughput of supply chains that remain challenged today.”
