Shop System™

The world’s first metal binder jetting system designed for machine shops starting at just $150,000. Shop System™ is available to order now with shipments scheduled to begin in Fall 2020. With variable build volume configurations (4L, 8L, 12L and 16L), the Shop System is designed to scale to each shop’s throughput.

Flexible Manufacturing

The Shop System™ is designed to seamlessly integrate into your shop’s workflow to improve productivity across any range of manufacturing scenarios. 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. The Shop System contains all pieces of equipment your machine shop needs to begin binder jetting — from print through sintering.

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.

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.

Easy to use and operate

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.**

The Shop System™ Solution Overview

Printer

The Shop System printer features the highest resolution printhead on the market with over 70,000 nozzles jetting 1pL droplets at nearly 10 kHZ to achieve high resolution parts at a fraction of the cost and speed of laser-based systems.

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.

Powder Station

With easy access portholes, a hand-held air pick, built-in powder sieving and recycling, and a vacuum port for easy powder maintenance, the powder station provides closed-loop powder management and recycling.

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.

Furnace

The Shop System furnace is a shop-safe high-temp sintering oven built for cost-effective high throughput. Featuring external gas hookup and adjustable shelving, the furnace easily and affordably scales to mid-volume manufacturing.

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.
