Desktop Metal and CETIM certified 304L stainless steel for 3D printing in Shop System™

       The 304L complements the stainless steel stock now available for mid-range Shop System inkjet printers, which also includes the 17-4PH and 316L.
       Among stainless steels, 304L is known for its high tensile strength, corrosion resistance and durability.
       DM and CETIM continue to collaborate on the development and testing of 304L steel for food processing equipment
        BOSTON, March 15, 2023 – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Desktop Metal, Inc. (NYSE: DM), a global leader in additive manufacturing technologies for mass production, has partnered with CETIM, one of Europe’s largest industrial research organizations. , announced today that 304L stainless steel is approved for use in the Shop System™.

       CETIM has partnered with DM to develop the 304L option and will now offer medium size Shop System binder inkjet material to support the rapid production of critical spare parts for the French energy sector such as component processing for fuel, and nuclear components.
        “304L is one of the many additive manufacturing materials that CETIM is researching and developing processes on behalf of French industry,” says Dr. Christophe Reynaud, additive manufacturing materials engineer at CETIM. “304L is a key material in the energy sector due to its corrosion resistance and is suitable for demanding environments such as civil nuclear applications. This, combined with the high versatility and responsiveness of the shop floor system, can now result in a significant reduction in delivery times for the critical 304L. maintenance parts to avoid long and costly downtime.”
        Shop System 304L is the fifth printable material in the portfolio. In addition to 17-4PH and 316L, IN625 and Cobalt-Chrome are now certified. The IN718 is now fast-paced for final touches in the shop.
       “We are thrilled to be working with respected CETIM to bring 304L to factory systems,” said Rick Fulop, founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “This new material offering will allow manufacturers to produce complex geometries on demand. 304L parts with virtually no waste, whether they are interested in small or large batches. 304L is a flexible stainless steel widely used in many industries and we are pleased to offer it in our affordable and popular Shop System models.
        304L is an austenitic stainless steel and is one of the most commonly used stainless steel grades. It has high tensile strength, corrosion resistance, and durability, making it a popular material for a variety of domestic and commercial applications, including structural components, food processing equipment, fluid transport components, and welded components.
       304L stainless steel printed with the Shop System and sintered in an Ipsen graphite oven meets or exceeds the minimum tensile properties and chemical composition specified in ASTM A240.
       Further development is underway to further demonstrate that 3D inkjet printing of 304L binder can be used in food processing equipment and welding applications.
        CETIM works closely with industrial companies to help identify market opportunities and drive innovation and technological advancement. He was an early adopter of the Production System™ P-1 and also owns the Desktop Metal Studio System™, a combined metal deposition system. (BMD) metal printing system.
        Desktop Metal (NYSE:DM) advances additive manufacturing 2.0, a new era of on-demand digital mass production of industrial, medical and consumer products. Our innovative 3D printers, materials and software provide the speed, cost and quality of parts required for this transformation.
