Metal 3D Printing Materials Analysis – Everything You Need to Know

Tuesday May 1, 2018 Online 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST

Javelin Technologies, known across Canada as a top reseller for SOLIDWORKS software and the full range of Stratasys 3D printers, has added Desktop Metal 3D printing systems to our additive manufacturing offerings.

During this live webinar, our special guest from Desktop Metal will present a thorough look at all the metal materials currently available for the Desktop Metal Studio System.

We will also run a Question & Answer session, where the following questions — and your questions — will be answered: 

  • How do metal 3D printed parts compare to a conventionally created parts in terms of hardness, resistance and strength? 
  • What is the grain structure like in comparison to other metal printers? 
  • With the addition of a binder, and removal of the binder, are there impurities or residual product left over in the end part post-sintering? 
  • Can Desktop Metal make custom materials at a cost to the customer? 
  • When will Aluminum be available? 
  • Can the parts be heat treated? If so, are there any limitations? 
  • Are there any considerations that need to be taken when machining prints?

Desktop Metal Materials

Prototype and mass produce with the same alloys

Desktop Metal designed their systems to use the same MIM (Metal Injection Molding) materials used in traditional manufacturing. This opens up an ecosystem of low-cost, high-quality alloys with a mature supply chain and well-studied process controls.

200+ compatible alloys

By enabling the use of metal powders from the MIM industry, the Desktop Metal systems have access to a wide range of existing materials—from steels and aluminum to superalloys and titanium.

Up to 80% cheaper

Laser-based systems require specially formulated, cost-prohibitive metal powders. We use metal powder with a wide particle size distribution, enabling much lower materials costs.
