DESKTOP METAL ALLOYS

Prototype and mass produce
with 200+ Compatible Metal Alloys

TALK TO AN EXPERT

Prototype and mass produce with the same alloys

Desktop Metal designed their systems to use the same MIM (Metal Injection Molding) materials used in traditional manufacturing. This opens up an ecosystem of low-cost, high-quality alloys with a mature supply chain and well-studied process controls.

200+ compatible alloys

By enabling the use of metal powders from the MIM industry, the Desktop Metal systems have access to a wide range of existing materials—from steels and aluminum to super alloys and titanium.

Up to 80% cheaper

Laser-based systems require specially formulated, cost-prohibitive metal powders. We use metal powder with a wide particle size distribution, enabling much lower materials costs.
