Morris Group, Inc. of Windsor, Connecticut, one of the largest CNC machine tool distribution networks in North America, has been selected by Desktop Metal of Burlington, Massachusetts as a top tier, Diamond Partner supplier of its innovative metal 3D printing systems in 30 states extending from Maine to Florida to the Dakotas. With the addition of Desktop Metal’s Studio System™ to its existing lineup of CNC machine tools, Morris Group’s extensive distributor network provides an end-to-end suite of advanced solutions to manufacturers of precision metal parts.
“We are very pleased to represent Desktop Metal and excited to introduce this groundbreaking 3D printing technology to metal cutting manufacturers in our distribution area,” states Brad Morris, President and CEO of Morris Group. “Our organization brings more than seventy-five years of manufacturing experience, knowledge and customer support to the table.”
The Studio System, which debuted in May, is the first office-friendly metal 3D printing system for rapid prototyping, and is 10 times less expensive than existing technology. The Studio System is a complete platform, including a printer, a debinder and a sintering furnace. It requires no hazardous powders, lasers or cutting tools to operate. Instead it uses Bound Metal Deposition (BMD), a proprietary process, to near net shape parts, similar to the safest and most widely-used 3D printing process for plastics, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). The Studio System printer features safe-to-handle, swappable media cartridges and quick release print heads for seamless material changes. It was designed for use with a variety of materials– from steels and copper to superalloys like Inconel.
“We are excited to partner with Morris Group to bring our metal 3D printing solutions to new markets,” said Ric Fulop, CEO and…
