SolidCAM, which was founded in 1984, has offered Desktop Metal products in Germany since 2021. Now, it will offer Desktop Metal solutions for direct printing of metal to customers in the United States, where SolidCAM has technology centers at its US headquarters in Newton, Pa., and Rancho Cucamonga, CA, as well as the United Kingdom, Israel and India. In all, SolidCAM has about 100 direct sales team members worldwide.

Additionally, new CNC + AM Center of Excellence showrooms are currently being completed in Pennsylvania, Germany, and the UK to demonstrate how Desktop Metal’s AM 2.0 solutions complement traditional subtractive machining technology and workflows. Additional facilities are also slated for completion in California, Israel and India.

“The Desktop Metal team is delighted to announce an expansion of our relationship with SolidCAM, a brand that is long trusted by machinists worldwide,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “This expanded partnership means that more CNC professionals will learn how easy it is to 3D print and sinter complex designs on our Studio System and Shop System metal AM offerings, freeing up capacity on CNC equipment, as well as machinist’s time. Additive manufacturing technology is truly complementary to machining, and we’re eager to deliver that message to the market in partnership with SolidCAM.”

“Our Schramberg Technology Center has already added a Desktop Metal Studio System to its current CNC machines, and we’re in the process of adding more Studio System and Shop System printers to our facilities worldwide so we can demonstrate how this additive manufacturing technology is complementary to CNC machining equipment,” said Dr. Emil Somekh, Founder and CEO of SolidCAM. “The growing impact of additive manufacturing has been well documented. During the COVID-19 epidemic, 3D printing played a critical role in repairing vulnerabilities in supply chains, especially in the medical sector, and we think it can help improve the throughput of supply chains that remain challenged today.”

SolidCAM will be showcasing Desktop Metal equipment and solutions in its booth at IMTS 2022 from Sept. 12 - 17 in Chicago in Booth No. 134502. Desktop Metal will also have two booths at the show, No. 433103 and 432212, where it will be showcasing its metal, polymer, and digital metal casting Additive Manufacturing 2.0 solutions. The International Manufacturing Technology Show, produced by the Association For Manufacturing Technology, is the largest and longest-running industry trade show in the Western Hemisphere.
