Desktop Steel™ breaks new grounds with the introduction of Figur G15, an modern digital metallic sheet forming platform

Desktop Steel, Inc., a worldwide chief in additive manufacturing applied sciences for mass manufacturing, has introduced at IMTS 2022 the launch of the Figur G15. It’s the first industrial platform of its variety to form normal sheet metallic on demand instantly from a digital design file utilizing all-new, patent-pending Digital Sheet Forming (DSF) expertise.

Nearly all options for quickly prototyping sheet metallic elements require custom-forming instruments, molds, or dies. Sometimes, these options have prolonged lead occasions and are costly to supply. Because of this due to Figur’s breakthrough DSF expertise, there might be no stamping instruments, molds, dies, or presses required.

How does it work?

The Figur G15 maintains excessive precision with a versatile, incremental forming strategy by way of a proprietary construct field design that reduces pressure distribution throughout the sheet throughout the construct. It contains a software-driven ceramic device head on an XY gantry that progressively varieties giant metallic sheets layer by layer with as much as 2,000 lb of pressure. With a forming space of 1450 x 1000 mm (57 x 39 in.) in X and Y, Figur G15 can course of optimistic and destructive varieties as much as 400 mm (16 in.) within the vertical Z path. By way of metallic varieties and sheets’ thicknesses, you’ll be able to course of metal, as much as 2.0 mm thick and aluminum, as much as 2.5 mm.

“After years of growth, we’re excited to point out our Digital Sheet Forming expertise to sheet metallic fabricators,” mentioned Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Steel. “Sheet metallic forming with the Figur G15 is accessible, versatile, and cost-effective, even at low volumes. Producers within the automotive, aerospace, equipment and different industries can now produce a totally shaped half in lower than an hour and not using a main funding of time or cash.”
