Desktop Metal Webinar: Easy-Adopt Metal 3D Printing – Which Technology is Right for You?

June 28, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Metal 3D printing can be transformational – unlocking new design freedoms for part innovation with fast iterations and enabling tooling-free production of spare parts or custom fixtures. When getting started with the technology, it’s important to understand the different technologies available to make sure your investment fits your production workflow and your company gets the best ROI.

Join additive manufacturing expert Sean Roberts for a breakdown of two of the easiest-to-adopt metal additive manufacturing technologies, “powderless” Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) and the easily scalable binder jetting. BMD is an extrusion-based 3D printing process with pre-bound rods of metal powder and binder is heated and extruded onto a build plate, shaping a part layer-by-layer in an office-friendly process. Binder jetting uses an industrial printhead to selectively deposit liquid binder onto thin layers of powder particles before densification in a sintering furnace, similar to how metal injection molded parts are densified.

Learn how each of these technologies creates complex metal parts in an easy-to-adopt process and gain an understanding of their differences as well as the benefits and considerations to help you choose the best solution to meet your production needs.

In this webinar you’ll:

          • Learn the processing workflow for both extrusion-based 3D printing processes and metal binder jetting, including sintering, used with both technologies and how software-based workflows help ensure easy-adoption success
          • Gain an understanding of which technology is more suitable for different types of applications
          • See use case and part examples from Desktop Metal’s Studio and Shop System printers
