Desktop Metal, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts, USA, has announced the opening of a new in-house manufacturing facility that will more than triple the final assembly space currently dedicated to its Production SystemTM metal Additive Manufacturing machines. This new facility is said to be part of a strategic plan to accelerate the production of its flagship Production System P-50 machine, with initial builds targeted for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2021.

“After a significant development cycle, we are experiencing growing, pent-up demand for our Production System P-50 solution,” stated Ric Fulop, CEO of Desktop Metal. “As we continue to convert these opportunities, expanding our in-house final assembly capabilities has become a critical step to scaling deployment of our Single Pass Jetting technology.”

“This new facility in Massachusetts, in conjunction with our contract manufacturers and suppliers, supports our ability to meet growing demand for high-volume applications,” he continued. “We are now well-positioned to supply our global customers with the fastest metal 3D printing platform to enable cost-effective mass production via Additive Manufacturing.”

The Production System P-50 is an industrial-scale manufacturing platform utilising Desktop Metal’s Single Pass JettingTM technology. The company’s Binder Jetting (BJT) process is reported to offer production quantities of up to millions of parts per year, at costs competitive with conventional mass production techniques. The P-50 features a print bar with native 1200 dpi, an inert processing environment and constant wave spreading for print bed uniformity, said to enable the quality, reliability and economics required for high-volume end use applications.
