Desktop Metal, Inc., the Boston-based leader in offering a portfolio of 3D printing solutions, announced that the Hamburg District Court in Germany has issued a preliminary injunction against SprintRay Europe GmbH in a patent infringement suit brought by EnvisionTEC GmbH, now awholly owned subsidiary of Desktop Metal, in August 2021 (315 O 211/21).

The preliminary injunction against SprintRay prohibits it from selling, importing, using or keeping any product in Germany which infringe the asserted patent claims. The products in question are SprintRay’s Pro 95 & Pro 55 resin 3D printers.

The suit was brought based on a number of European patents, granted in Germany and other countries, which cover an apparatus and process for layer separation in 3D printing.

“We are very happy with the Court’s decision; it confirms that SprintRay’s Pro 95 and Pro 55 printer models infringe EnvisionTEC’s patented layer separation process. Desktop Metal’s commitment to R&D in hardware, software and material science have resulted in over 650 issued patents and pending patent applications worldwide, which we intend to vigorously enforce.”

– Michael Jafar, CEO of Desktop Health
