Desktop Metal Production review

The Production is a metal 3D printer by Desktop Metal, a US-based manufacturer.

The metal 3D printer presents an interesting and unique technology that Desktop Metal calls Single Pass Jetting (SPJ). Thanks to this metal 3D printing technology, the Production system is able to produce high quantities of metal parts.

According to Desktop Metal, costs per part for high volume production are as low as with traditional manufacturing methods. Additionally, the Single Pass Jetting (SPJ) 3D printing process delivers 3D printing speeds of up to 8,200 cm3/hr.

Desktop Metal Production metal 3D printing technology

  • Single Pass Jetting technology: This material jetting technology is bi-directional. Desktop Metal combines all the necessary steps for 3D printing so that whenever there is movement, 3D printing occurs. Two full-width print bars containing over 32,000 jets work in conjunction with powder spreaders to spread powder and 3D print in a single quick pass across the build area, jetting millions of droplets per second.
  • High-density nesting: Unlike laser-based processes which weld parts to a build plate, parts created by the Production system are surrounded by loose powder. This enables full use of the build envelope as well as higher productivity per build. Desktop Metal’s software arranges parts to maximize the build area in all axes.
