Metal desk, a leader in mass production additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, announcement the opening of a new in-house manufacturing facility that will triple the manufacturing capacity of its P-50 production system.

The final assembly space is currently dedicated to the Production System™ platform to meet the high demand for the world’s fastest metal 3D printing technology.

This new facility is part of a strategic plan to accelerate the ramp-up of Desktop Metal’s flagship Production System P-50 printer, for which the Company is engaged in component sourcing and early build assembly. scheduled for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2021.

“After a significant development cycle, we are experiencing growing and pent-up demand for our Production System P-50 solution. As we continue to convert these opportunities, expanding our in-house final assembly capabilities has become a critical step in expanding the deployment of our Single Pass Jetting technology. This new facility in Massachusetts, working with our contract manufacturers and suppliers, supports our ability to meet the growing demand for high-volume applications. We are now well positioned to provide our global customers with the fastest metal 3D printing platform to enable cost effective mass production via additive manufacturing.

The P-50 Production System is an industrial manufacturing platform powered by Desktop Metal’s Single Pass Jetting™ technology. It is intended to achieve speeds up to 100 times faster than older powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies, enabling production quantities of up to millions of parts per year at costs comparable to traditional mass production. The P-50 printer paves the way for mass production of end-use parts by enabling higher throughput, repeatability and part costs.
