Cetim and Desktop Metal partner to accelerate the adoption of global Metal Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

Explore new advanced solutions for your manufacturing needs – from low-volume prototyping to mid-volume runs of complex metal parts !

Cetim, the Technical Centre for Mechanical Industry, and Desktop Metal, the company committed to making 3D printing accessible to manufacturers and engineers around the world, announced a partnership to accelerate the global adoption of metal additive manufacturing.

Cetim, which works closely with industrial companies to help to identify market opportunities and facilitate innovation and technical progress, will become one of the first adopters of the new Desktop Metal Shop System™, the world’s first metal binder jetting system designed for machine shops and metal job shops. This announcement builds on the early momentum Cetim is seeing with the installation of the Desktop Metal Studio System™ into its Cluses, France facility. With both the Studio System, for rapid prototyping and low volume production of metal parts, and now the Shop System, Cetim’s customers, which span aerospace, oil and gas, automotive and other industries, will be able to explore new advanced solutions for their manufacturing needs – from low-volume prototyping to mid-volume runs of complex metal parts.

Joint research projects
In addition to the implementation of both the Studio System and Shop System, Cetim and Desktop Metal plan to collaborate on a variety of research initiatives leveraging Desktop Metal’s technologies, including design for metal AM processes, post-processing and finishing techniques qualification, workflow optimization and materials development, among others.

About The Shop System
Launched during Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany, the Shop System enables shop owners to leverage affordable, high-quality binder jetting technology to print end-use metal parts with unparalleled speed, print quality, and productivity. Offering the most cost-effective solution in the industry starting at $150,000 USD for the printer, this high-speed, single-pass print engine helps shop owners eliminate many of the constraints previously seen with traditional manufacturing methods like CNC machining and tap into new opportunities to reduce their costs and increase revenue.

About The Studio System
The world’s first office-friendly metal 3D printing system for functional prototyping and low volume production is designed to make metal 3D printing more accessible, enabling design and engineering teams to print metal parts faster, without the need for special facilities, dedicated operators, or expensive tooling. The three-part solution, including printer, debinder and furnace, automates metal 3D printing by tightly integrating through Desktop Metal’s cloud-based software to deliver a seamless workflow for printing complex metal parts in-house – from digital file to sintered part.
