The Shop System™ printer features the highest resolution printhead on the market with over 70,000 nozzles jetting 1pL droplets at nearly 10 kHZ to achieve high resolution, 3D printed parts at a fraction of the cost and speed of laser-based systems.
With easy access portholes, a hand-held air pick, built-in powder sieving and recycling, and a vacuum port for easy powder maintenance, the powder station provides closed-loop powder management and recycling.
The Shop System™ furnace is a shop-safe high-temp sintering oven built for cost-effective high throughput of 3D printed parts. Featuring external gas hookup and adjustable shelving, the furnace easily and affordably scales to mid-volume manufacturing.
Easy to use & operate
Designed with the modern machine shop in mind, the Shop System™ is built to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Produce parts with superior surface finish and resolution versus laser-based 3D printing systems at a fraction of the cost.*
Affordable turnkey solution
The Shop System™ contains all the equipment your machine shop needs to begin binder jetting — from print through sintering. And with a range of build volume configurations (4L, 8L, 12L, and 16L), the Shop System™ is designed to scale to your shop’s throughput.
Parts on the Shop System™ print fully supported in their powder bed, and feature hand-removable sintering setters. Avoid hours of labor machining off support structures typical to laser-based 3D printing systems and instead achieve customer-ready, near-net-shape parts right out of the furnace.
Optimized powders & parameters
Get started quickly with a turnkey, end-to-end 3D printing solution. The Shop System™ features Desktop Metal-engineered powders and processing parameters, optimized to deliver exceptional part quality and ensure part-to-part repeatability.
Use 3D printing to amplify your shop’s output. Effortlessly print end-use metal parts with the quality, surface finish and tolerances required to co-exist with machining.*
With a high-speed, single-pass print engine, the Shop System™ produces high-quality metal parts up to 10x faster than laser powder bed fusion—meaning you can 3D print up to 70kg of metal parts per day.
Print a build per shift
Average cycle times of 6-12 hours enable a new build every shift.** With the ability to 3D print tens to hundreds of near-net shape parts each day, you can reserve machinist hours for refining critical features.
Flexible batch jobs
The Shop System™ is a tooling-free manufacturing process. Change over to a new job at the press of a button and process multiple complex jobs without the need for custom setups.
Superior print quality
Print customer-ready, high-resolution parts with incredibly fine feature detail. Achieve surface finishes as low as 4µm Ra out of the furnace, and <0.1µm Ra with mass finishing. The Shop System™ produces fully dense, solid parts, no debind or infill required.
The Shop System™ features the highest resolution single-pass binder jetting system on the market.*** With 1600×1600 DPI native (33% higher resolution than comparable systems), and over 670M drops per second, the Shop System™ delivers high-speed, high-resolution 3D printing.
Adaptive print engine
Users don’t have to sacrifice feature detail or resolution for speed. Employing a ~1 pL droplet size and automated drop multiplexing up to 6 pL, the Shop System™ achieves superior surface finish, bleed control and rich feature detail at high speed.***
5x print redundancy
To avoid jet-outs and print issues the Shop System™ features 70,000-plus nozzles spread across five rows. The printhead features 25% higher nozzle redundancy than comparable 3D printing systems, resulting in enhanced print quality and reliability.
