Shop System – Overview & Benefits

  Easy to Use & Operate

Shop System™ introduces high quality binder jetting to an entirely new market of machine shops. Shops can now cost effectively print end use metal parts with unparalleled speed and productivity.

Designed with the modern machine shop in mind, the Shop System is built to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Produce parts with superior surface finish and resolution versus laser-based systems at a fraction of the cost.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Affordable turnkey solution

Affordable turnkey solution.

The Shop System contains all pieces of equipment your machine shop needs to begin binder jetting — from print through sintering. And with a range of build volume configurations (4L, 8L, 12L, and 16L), the Shop System is designed to scale to your shop’s throughput.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Simplified post-processing

Simplified post-processing.

Parts on the Shop System print fully supported in their powder bed, and feature hand-removable sintering setters. Avoid hours of labor machining off support structures typical to laser-based systems and instead achieve customer-ready, near-net-shape parts right out of the furnace.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Optimized powders & parameters

Optimized powders & parameters.

Get started quickly with a turnkey, end-to-end solution. Shop System features Desktop Metal engineered powders and processing parameters, optimized to deliver exceptional part quality, and ensure part-to-part repeatability.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Unparalleled Productivity
  Unparalleled Productivity

Amplify your shop’s output. Effortlessly print end-use metal parts with with the quality, surface finish and tolerances required to co-exist with machining.

Desktop Metal Shop System - 10x Faster

10x faster.

With a high-speed, single-pass print engine, the Shop System produces high-quality metal parts up to 10x faster than laser powder bed fusion—producing up to 70kg of metal parts per day.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Print a build per shift

Print a build per shift.

Average cycle times of 6-12 hours enable a new build every shift.*** Print tens to hundreds of near-net shape parts each day and reserve machinist hours for refining critical features.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Flexible batch jobs

Flexible batch jobs.

The Shop System is a tooling-free manufacturing process. Change over to a new job at the press of a button and process multiple complex jobs without the need for custom setups.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Superior Print Quality
  Superior Print Quality

Print customer-ready, high-resolution parts with incredibly fine feature detail. Achieve surface finishes as low as 4µm Ra out of the furnace, and <0.1µm Ra with mass finishing. The Shop System produces fully dense, solid parts, no debind or infill required.

Desktop Metal Shop System - High-resolution printing

High-resolution printing.

The Shop System features the highest resolution single-pass binder jetting system in the market. With 1600×1600 DPI native (33% higher resolution than comparable systems), and over 670M drops per second, the Shop System delivers high-speed, high-resolution printing.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Adaptive print engine

Adaptive print engine.

Users don’t have to sacrifice feature detail or resolution for speed. Employing a ~1 pL droplet size and automated drop multiplexing up to 6 pL, the Shop System achieves superior surface finish, bleed control and rich feature detail at high speed.

Desktop Metal Shop System - 5x print redundancy

5x print redundancy.

Avoid jet-outs and print issues with the Shop System’s five rows totaling over 70,000 nozzles. The printhead features 25% higher nozzle redundancy than the comparable systems, resulting in enhanced print quality and reliability.


Shop System – Flexible Manufacturing

The Shop System™ is designed to seamlessly integrate into your shop’s workflow to improve productivity across any range of manufacturing scenarios.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Mixed-volume production

Mixed-volume production.

Produce various part geometries simultaneously without the need for multiple setups.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Batch production

Batch production.

Cost effectively produce low volume batches of complex parts due to elimination of tooling.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Mid-volume production

Mid-volume production.

Produce hundreds of near-net-shape parts every day with dramatically reduced labor costs and expanded geometric flexibility.


Shop System – How it Works

The Shop System™ is an end-to-end, single-pass binder jetting solution delivering high-resolution parts at a fraction of the time and cost.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Print

1.  Print

For each layer, the printer spreads metal powder across the build bed, and precisely jets a binding agent to bond loose powder and define part geometry. Layer by layer, metal powder and binder is deposited until the entire build volume is packed with bound parts and surrounding loose powder.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Depowder

2.  Depowder

Once an entire build is complete, the build box is removed and placed in a powder station for bulk and fine depowdering — with the help of a hand-held air pick. Loose powder is removed from the parts and recovered via a built-in powder recycling system with powder sieving.

Desktop Metal Shop System - Sinter

3.  Sinter

Depowdered parts are placed onto trays in a shop-safe, high-throughput furnace for batch sintering. With an external gas hookup and temperatures reaching 1400ºC, the Shop System furnace is able to deliver quality and reliable sintering in a shop-friendly format.


Shop System™ applications span a variety of industries including manufacturing, tooling, automotive, consumer, electronics, and oil & gas.
