Metal 3D Printing Patents Make it Easier to Remove Support Structures. Desktop Metal, is a Massachusetts based company that has developed office and mass production level metal 3D printers.
Desktop Metal has just been granted the patents for its proprietary Separable Supports technology.
According to Jonah Myerberg, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of the company,
“As a company driven by invention, we are committed to both innovating and protecting our technology through strategic intellectual property achievements. The technological innovation in these patents enables users, for the first time, to print large metal parts with complex geometries that can be easily removed from their support structures by hand or to print metal objects with separable interlocking structures.”
“Traditional laser powder bed methods for metal additive manufacturing (AM) are restricted to single materials and are both difficult and costly to implement,” said Myerberg. “Desktop Metal has designed new approaches for metal AM that now allow multiple materials to be used during printing. This makes it possible to print support structures that do not bond to parts and consolidate during sintering with the part and, as a result, high dimensional accuracy is achieved, and support structures are easily removed by hand. We believe the benefit of this technology covered by the patents will enable substantially increased adoption of metal AM.” 🙂
According to the Global 3D food Printing Market. Europe and Asia Pacific has more market in 3D Food Printing.
North America, and Latin America are at the same level.
Middle East and North Africa has same level. 🙂
3D printing is an innovative way of structuring an object or creating layer by layer. A design of the product is developed into the computer and the same system is integrated with the machine. Small granules of the raw materials are feeded into the machines that are further released by the robot arm to form […]
