Desktop Metal

Desktop Metal was started to address a problem—how to make metal 3D printing accessible for engineering teams. In 2013, CEO Ric Fulop began collaborating with world-leading experts in materials science, engineering, and 3D printing. Their work together over the course of two years drew multiple independent inventions together to form the basis for Desktop Metal’s technology:

  • 1988 “3D Printing” gets its name and Binder Jetting is invented by Ely Sachs (Co-founder) and colleagues at MIT
  • 1997 Metallurgy experts Animesh Bose (VP, R&D) and Randall German publish definitive book on Metal Injection Molding
  • 2000 Single-Pass Inkjet Technology is invented by Paul Hoisington (Chief Scientist for Inkjet Systems) and colleagues
  • 2006- 2011 Major nanocrystalline and amorphous metals advances are made by Chris Schuh (Co-founder) at MIT
  • 2015 Desktop Metal is founded

Rize 3D

Rize is a Boston, USA-based, next-generation additive manufacturing company enabling inclusive and sustainable innovation to achieve Additive at Scale. Rize recently released its first product, Rize™ One, which is winning industry and customer accolades. Gartner named Rize ‘Cool Vendor in 3D Printing 2017’ and prestigious organizations like NASA, US Army, US Navy and Merck have chosen the product for supporting their additive manufacturing needs.

Rize One, the world’s first hybrid 3D printer, is a breakthrough combining two discrete technologies, extrusion and material jetting. This is enabling companies to sustainably deliver a vast range of custom and replacement manufacturing parts with the highest isotropic strength.

The breakthrough is made possible through Rize’s patented technology called Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD), which enables inclusive multi-material printing with minimal post processing and the sustainable use of safe, non-toxic and recyclable materials. Intelligent products increasingly require parts with variable materials, which include mechanical, electrical and chemical properties. Rize’s inclusive APD process fuses them into unified parts, enabling innovators to deliver unprecedented customer experiences.

Rize solutions combine strength, safety, security and speed, all at the most competitive price point in the industry.

Sodick

The OPM250 is a single process machine which combines laser metal sintering and high speed milling within the same workspace, allowing users to create finished 3D printed molds within a single machine. This additive technology allows not only for improved mold cooling channels and cycle times, but also streamlines mold design, significantly reducing the number of components necessary to create a complete mold.

Landscape Today

  • Metals currently represent one of the fastest growing segments in 3D printing globally. Shipments of metal 3D printing machines grew by 51% globally in 2015, compared to the same period in 2014, and they continued to climb in 2016. Various research firms project additive manufacturing will be a $20B industry by 2020. (Source: Wohler’s Report 2016)
  • The advent of metal 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, has promised to dramatically change the way products are manufactured. Yet, today’s metal 3D printing options have failed to deliver on that promise. Current technology is too industrial and expensive for prototyping, and it’s not fast enough or cheap enough for mass production. To bring products to market, technology needs to address both design and manufacturing.
