Desktop Metal shipped its first P-50 printer to Stanley Black & Decker

Desktop Metal (NYSE:DM) announced that it has shipped its first Production System™ P-50 printer to Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK), marking the commercialization of the company’s flagship additive manufacturing technology for mass production of end-use, metal parts.

As one of the most highly anticipated advanced manufacturing systems ever introduced, the P-50 is the product of nearly $100 million in investment and a four-year development program overseen by Desktop Metal engineers and materials scientists. The P-50 is designed to mass produce high-performance metal parts with the repeatability and cost required to compete with conventional manufacturing.
Stanley Black & Decker, the first P-50 customer, is a purpose-driven industrial organization that operates the world’s largest tools and storage business, including such iconic brands as DEWALT, BLACK+DECKER and CRAFTSMAN.

The Production System – World’s Fastest Way to 3D Print Metal Parts At-Scale

Created by the inventors of binder jetting and single-pass inkjet technology, the Production System is an industrial manufacturing platform powered by Desktop Metal’s Single Pass Jetting™ technology. It is designed to achieve speeds up to 100 times those of legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies and enable production quantities of up to millions of parts per year at costs competitive with conventional mass production techniques. The platform supports a robust materials library including ten qualified metal alloys – from commercially pure copper to stainless steels such as 17-4PH – with additional metal alloys in active development.
