Desktop Metal Awarded Preliminary Injunction Against SprintRay in Patent Infringement Suit
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Desktop Metal (NYSE: DM) today announced the Hamburg District Court in Germany issued a preliminary injunction against SprintRay Europe GmbH in a patent infringement suit brought by EnvisionTEC GmbH in August 2021 (315 O 211/21).
The preliminary injunction prohibits SprintRay from selling, importing, using or keeping any product in Germany which infringe the asserted patent claims.
The suit was brought based on a number of European patents, granted in Germany and other countries, which cover an apparatus and process for layer separation in 3D printing.
“We are very happy with the Court’s decision; it confirms that SprintRay’s Pro 95 and Pro 55 printer models infringe EnvisionTEC’s patented layer separation process,” said Michael Jafar, CEO of Desktop Health. “Desktop Metal’s commitment to R&D in hardware, software and material science have resulted in over 650 issued patents and pending patent applications worldwide, which we intend to vigorously enforce.”
