Javelin adds Desktop Metal 3D printing systems to its lineup
Javelin will offer the Desktop Metal Studio System, an office-friendly metal 3D printing system and the Studio System, an end-to-end mass production solution.
Javelin Technologies is expanding its additive manufacturing offerings by adding Desktop Metal 3D printing systems to its lineup.
“The Desktop Metal team is an impressive collection of industry experts who set out to overcome the limitations of traditional metal 3D printing,” said Ted Lee, co-managing director for Javelin. “The resulting system is safer to operate, more user-friendly, far more compact, and much less expensive. For our customers, that’s a game changer. No doubt about it.”
To date, printing in metal has required an explosion proof room, large outdoor argon gas tanks, respirators, special power requirements, and specialized operators. The printer, plus the required post-processing equipment and facility improvements, usually required an investment beyond seven figures.
Javelin has been looking to expand its additive manufacturing offerings as many customers regularly ask about printing in metal, particularly those working in sectors such as automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas.
“Our customers have been waiting for this. They need it, they want it, but they’ve never been able to bring it in house. Now, with the Studio System, all they need is power and an internet connection. We exist to help our customers work smarter and give them competitive advantage. This is a step beyond. This will transform the way they make things.”
Javelin will be offering two AM solutions including the Desktop Metal Studio System, an office-friendly metal 3D printing system and the Studio System, an end-to-end solution, including printer, debinder, and furnace.
The Studio System will be available to Canadian customers in mid-2018 and is designed for rapid prototyping and low volume production. The Production System is the first metal 3D printing system for mass production of high resolution metal parts, delivering the speed, accuracy, and per-part cost needed to compete with traditional manufacturing.
