Siemens and Desktop Metal announce partnership

Siemens and Desktop Metal, Inc., global leaders in digitalization and additive manufacturing technologies have announced a multi-faceted partnership aimed at accelerating the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) for production applications with a focus on the world’s largest manufacturers. The sweeping collaboration will touch many aspects of the Desktop Metal business and benefit end-users in a variety of ways:  Increased integration of Siemens technology in Desktop Metal’s AM 2.0 systems, including operational technology, information technology, and automation.

Desktop Metal solutions will be fully integrated into Siemens simulation and planning tools for machine and factory design. For example, Siemens Digital Twin tools are now used for designing some machines and Siemens Advanta can simulate all levels of the binder jetting process and global plant planning, enabling fast and reliable decisions for factory planning.

The two companies will also be working on specific industrial-scale projects involving data handling and environmental, health and safety topics.

Siemens and Desktop Metal will work together to promote the benefits of AM 2.0 technologies, with a focus on binder jet 3D printing as a key technology solution that can reduce waste, produce more, and build more resilient supply chains.
