Desktop Metal is reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts – from prototyping through mass production. Aidex is proud to bring this cutting-edge technology to the educational sector and provide a leg-up to students by learning the 3D Metal Printing process.
Each component of the Studio System™ is designed strategically to make it easier to realize the full potential of 3D Metal Printing.
Secure, web-based software constructs build plans from STL or CAD files, automatically generating supports and control parameters based on part geometry and material.
Layer by layer, a green part is shaped by extruding bound metal rods – metal powder held together by wax and polymer binders – in a process called Bound Metal Deposition™
The green part is immersed in proprietary debind fluid, dissolving primary binder and creating an open-pore channel structure throughout the part in preparation for sintering.
As the part is heated to temperatures near melting, remaining binder is removed and metal particles fuse together, causing the part to densify up to 96-99.8%
