Digital Metal, part of Sweden’s Höganäs Group and a developer of metal Binder Jet Additive Manufacturing machines, has launched a new software upgrade which it states triples the build speed of its DM P2500 machines. The upgrade reportedly enables significantly larger production volume per time unit while maintaining high component quality. The new software is now standard on all new units, and upgrade kits are available for installed machines.

According to, Digital Metal, its new DM P2500 metal binder jetting machine has been made to be as accurate as possible, with all moving parts having an accuracy down to single microns, said to enable excellent repeatability in serial production. In addition, a 160 mm thick custom-made diabase stone is now incorporated to heighten stability and ensure no vibrations affect the Additive Manufacturing process. 

“We constantly work to improve the performance of our printers so that our customers can work as cost-effectively as possible,” stated Alexander Sakratidis, Sales & Marketing Manager at Digital Metal. “This important upgrade makes it possible to reach even greater production volumes without sacrificing component quality. We plan to continue introducing similar significant upgrades twice a year.”
