Desktop Metal, a leader in mass production additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, announced 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 robust demand for the world’s fastest metal 3D printing technology.

This new facility is part of a strategic plan to accelerate the production ramp of Desktop Metal’s flagship Production System P-50 printer, for which the Company is engaged in component procurement and assembly of initial builds targeted for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2021.

“After a significant development cycle, we are experiencing growing, 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 to scaling deployment of our Single Pass Jetting technology. This new facility in Massachusetts, in conjunction with our contract manufacturers and suppliers, supports our ability to meet growing demand for high-volume applications. We are now well-positioned to supply our global customers with the fastest metal 3D printing platform to enable cost-effective mass production via additive manufacturing.”

– Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal

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 legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies, allowing for production quantities of up to millions of parts per year at costs comparable to traditional mass production techniques. The P-50 printer is paving the way for mass production of end-use parts by enabling higher throughput, repeatability, and lower part costs.
