High quality 3D printers
The open platform binder jetting system is ideal for the mass production of small, complicated parts as well as process and material development.
Desktop Metal® also relies here on Single Pass Jetting ™ technology, which is also used on the P 50. The powder is applied with a layer height of 50 µm, and the resolution here is also 1200 x 1200 dpi.
Of course, both reactive and non-reactive metal powders can be processed here as well.
The P1 increases your process flexibility and is the link in mass production to the P 50, supporting process transfer and closing the gap from development to series production.
The system uses 2 piezoelectric printheads (4,096 nozzles) and a unidirectional binder jetting module that enables print speeds of up to 1,350 cc/h.
Using unique "Constant Wave Spreading" technology, metal powder is sprayed over the entire printing process, so that a constant powder wave in front of the compaction roller ensures uniform density distribution in the powder bed. Due to the greater compression of the individual layers, better surface values and higher densities are achieved for the components.
Without solvent debinding, non-solid printed parts can be produced with densities of up to 99% or more. The system is suitable for the production of components for demanding casting/MIM applications, as comparable strengths are achieved.
The patented anti-ballistics technology was developed to minimize disturbances in the powder bed. This significantly reduces variability in the 3D printing process and extends the life of the print beam. This ensures excellent part quality and reliable prints.
The Production System's tool-less binder jetting 3D printing process supports parts with loose powder and eliminates the need to weld to a build plate. This allows customers to effectively fill the build volume with densely nested parts for high throughput.
To enable the use of additive manufacturing in production environments, an integrated camera monitors the process by taking pictures from different angles. This allows printing errors to be detected at an early stage and nozzle performance to be checked.
To keep component manufacturing costs as low as possible, the P1- Production System™ features an open material platform. This allows the customer to use the same metal powders used in the MIM sector or to resort to customer-specific alloys.
Bidirectional single-pass jetting, combines all 5 individual steps of the entire printing process (powder application, spreading, compaction, ballistic suppression and binder ejection ) and is performed over the complete build area for each pass.
After the print job is finished, the kit is removed and placed in the powder station. Here, the loose powder is removed and recovered via a built-in powder recycling system.
The cleaned parts are briefly baked together in an industrial furnace below melting temperature, where the binder is burned and the metal particles fuse together.
