Announcement: Affordable Metal 3D Printing from Desktop Metal Added to PADT Portfolio

Desktop Metal Logo Bracket 1 PADT is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Desktop Metal to resell its office-friendly and affordable metal 3D Printing solution. The partnership will also allow PADT to integrate this exciting new technology into its 3D Printer maintenance and part printing services. Desktop Metal’s new system is unique to the industry because it is a complete solution with a patented anti-sintering material that enables easily removed supports and the creation of complete assemblies. With the proprietary sintering furnace the DM Studio System delivers accurate parts quickly.  PADT will be representing this new solution in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

“We are very excited to fill this gap in our product offering,” said Rey Chu, co-owner and director of manufacturing technology at PADT. “It enables us to serve customers who need stronger properties than plastic additive manufacturing systems can offer, but who don’t need a direct laser melting solution. We researched our options and watched the development of many different products. We knew Desktop Metal had the right solution when we learned that it had developed a complete package that is easy to use.”

The DM Studio System™ is based on the Metal Injection Molding (MIM) process and will start shipping this September. It is the first office-friendly platform for metal 3D printing and is considerably less expensive than existing technology. The Studio System will be sold as a package for $120,000. This includes the metal 3D printer, debinder, and microwave-enhanced sintering furnace.

As a leader in additive manufacturing for more than 20 years, PADT is a resource for customers who need 3D Printing as a service, or who need their own systems in-house. The DM Studio System™ will compliment the complete line of Stratasys FDM and Polyjet systems that the PADT resells as well as direct laser melting systems from our partner Concept Laser. Our company’s expertise with fused deposition modeling, sintering, and MIM also make us uniquely qualified to represent this solution.

“Our team is looking forward to getting this technology in front of customers,” said PADT’s Manager of Hardware Sales, Mario Vargas. “Metal 3D Printing is something our customers have wanted to add, but they could not find a turn-key solution for prototyping with various metal materials. Desktop Metal leveraged its expertise in metallurgy and software to deliver a complete system that can be run in an office environment. This is very compelling for many of our customers across industries.”
