  • The Figur G15 uses patented Digital Sheet Forming (DSF) technology to shape sheet metal on demand directly from a digital file without an expensive stamping press or custom tools, molds, and dies
  • Parts off the Figur G15 can typically be produced within a day or two. After setup, even very large parts have cycle times under one hour
  • Evology purchased a Figur G15 system in Q1 and is now available to serve customers with the rapid production of sheet metal forms for specified gauges of cold rolled steel and 6061 aluminum, with more materials in development
  • Sheet metal parts produced on the Figur G15 will be on display June 25-27 at RAPID + TCT, North America’s largest additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing event, at the Los Angeles Convention Center

BOSTON / May 15, 2024 / Business Wire / Desktop Metal (NYSE: DM),a global leader in Additive Manufacturing 2.0 technologies for mass production, today announced that it has installed four Figur G15 Pro systems featuring Digital Sheet Forming (DSF) technology to three manufacturers, including Evology Manufacturing in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

With 30+ years as a contract manufacturer, Evology has a full suite of both traditional and additive technologies to service companies in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, defense, automotive, agricultural, marine, mining, medical, electronics, and consumer goods. Evology serves companies ranging from small startups to Fortune 50 companies with prototyping and low-volume production, typically under 10,000 pieces.

Evology is now offering digital sheet form parts off its Figur G15 for cold rolled steel up to 2 mm thick and 6061 aluminum up to 3.175 mm thick, with more materials in development.

“We are delighted to offer our customers this cutting-edge rapid sheet metal forming technology from Desktop Metal,” said Sean Momsen, VP of Business Development and Marketing at Evology. “In addition to our ability to fabricate sheet metal parts rapidly, we also have a full suite of traditional finishing equipment to deliver finished final products to customers.”

Justin Nardone, CEO of Figur, a Desktop Metal brand, said, “We are encouraged by the continued demand we see for our rapid sheet metal forming technology, which truly saves manufacturers time and money when it comes to sheet metal production. The G15 eliminates a lot of the work required when forming metal, such as the design and manufacturing of tools and dies. Our system produces designs quickly, accurately, and repeatedly, so manufacturers are able to focus on the craftsmanship of design while getting their products to market faster and more efficiently.”

Details about the Figur G15

Introduced in 2022, the Figur G15 is the first commercial platform of its kind to shape sheet metal on demand directly from a digital file. A software-driven proprietary tooling system on an XY gantry forms the sheet with up to 2,000 lbs of force in a highly engineered and proprietary build zone.

With a maximum sheet size of 1,600 x 1,200 mm (63.0 x 47.2 in), the Figur G15 delivers parts with a draw depth up to 400 mm (16 in) in Z without custom forming tools, molds, dies, or presses. The G15 supports forming a range of metals and sheet thicknesses – including steel up to 2.0 mm and aluminum up to 2.5 mm – and delivers a high quality surface finish

Pro configurations of the Figur G15 include an automatic tool changer and measurement, through tool part lubrication, and automated work holding capabilities.
