Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing creates specialized parts that couldn’t be made with traditional processes. Fast Radius offers several metal additive technologies: Laser powder bed fusion, Desktop Metal/metal extrusion, and metal binder jetting. Fast Radius’s partnership with Desktop Metal provides access to both Desktop Metal Studio® and Desktop Metal Production System® technologies.
