What's your challenge?

DM's AM2.Production Team can help solve it

Every manufacturer has challenges. Whether it's getting new products to market faster on budget, delivering on tougher new performance requirements, improving your sustainability footprint, or delivering on once-impossible advancements.

Desktop Metal's AM2.Pro team can help you solve it. We're home to the world's leading team of additive manufacturing experts in metals, ceramics and polymers, including elastomers and foams.

Our team has been successfully helping solve complex challenges for global companies for decades now. That includes automakers, medical device, industrial and consumer goods companies, as well as government and defense agencies.

Solutions for complex problems

Our binder jet (BJT) 3D printing and digital light processing (DLP) platforms are highly flexible and have already proven themselves capable at solving complex problems for other customers.

Our team has a $5 million program with the U.S. Department of Energy to develop TPMS ceramic heat exchangers for supercritical CO2 power cycles using binder jet 3D printing. The gyroid shown here is binder jet 3D printed in silicon carbide.
The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has awarded our team a multimillion-dollar contract to develop, test and DLP 3D print seat cushions, mattresses, and patient positioning devices, to “make products at a fraction of their final size, minimizing storage and warehouse needs”
Our team has binder jet 3D printed several copper components for automakers to meet the new needs of electric conductivity in cars. The copper e-winding device, shown above, from Maxwell Motors is binder jet 3D printed and eliminates the need for traditional coil wrapping, bending, tooling and other inefficient process steps while improving part performance.
