Desktop Metal partners with University of Toledo to develop advanced materials

November 23, 2021

Desktop Metal, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and The University of Toledo Institute of Applied Engineering Research, Ohio, have partnered to support the development of advanced materials on Desktop Metal’s Production System metal Binder Jetting (BJT) Additive Manufacturing machine.

“We are thrilled to partner with The University of Toledo on this disruptive technology development, opening up a tremendous opportunity for medical, aviation, and space applications,” stated Ric Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “Our Production System platform enables the development of new materials for Binder Jet 3D printing that can be used for at-scale production. We’re proactively partnering with leading research universities around the world to accelerate materials development, and look forward to working with The University of Toledo to advance the development of Nitinol and other critical alloys for Binder Jetting.”

Behrang Poorganji, PhD, Research Professor and Director of Advanced Manufacturing at The University of Toledo College of Engineering, added, “Our partnership with Desktop Metal will bring a Production System P-1 to our lab and open new horizons in materials and application development.”

“By combining our metallurgy, software, chemistry, and design expertise, this partnership will allow us to pursue the development of numerous advanced materials, including Nitinol, a shape memory alloy used for many medical applications; ultra-high temperature nickel-based superalloys, such as Rene alloys, for aerospace; conductive materials such as pure copper for electrification; and lightweight materials, including advanced aluminium alloys for automotive applications,” Poorganji continued.

“We believe our collaboration with Desktop Metal will accelerate our education, training, and workforce development, which will be key to successful technology adoption in the industry for the future years ahead of us.”
