Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.

Winning in the Applied Technology/ 3D Printing category, the Desktop Metal Production System is the first metal 3D printing system for mass production of complex metal parts that is up to 100 times faster than current laser systems, delivering the speed, quality, and cost-per-part needed to compete with traditional manufacturing processes.

“Our judges recognized the Desktop Metal Production System as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards.

“We are truly honored to join the prestigious roster of recipients of the Edison Award,” says Ric Fulop, CEO and Co-founder of Desktop Metal. “Until now, metal 3D printing has failed to meet today’s manufacturing needs due to high costs, slow processes and hazardous materials. Desktop Metal is committed to making metal 3D printing accessible for engineers, and the Production System enables a rapid go-to-market production capability that marks a fundamental shift in how products will be made.”

The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards™ was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.
