By utilising the endless opportunities of our metal powders, we know that we can improve resource ef ciency and lead a wave of change for the better. To achieve this, traditional ways of doing things must be challenged. We actively seek out needs not being met and then invent new solutions. Our search for how metal powder can make a real difference never ends. With people at every level of our organisation dedicated to rede ning what is possible, we continue to amaze the world with new breakthroughs. 3,000 customers in 75 countries More than 1,500 products, mostly customer specific, from 13 production centres Around 700 granted patents Turnover 2014: 7,100 MSEK Profit (before taxes): 970 MSEK 1,800 employees Established in 1797 as a coal mining company Owned by FAM and LindéngruppenDigital Metal Technology belongs to the global Höganäs Group, which is headquartered in Sweden and best known for its pioneering work in metal powders. There is an obvious and natural connection between 3D metal printing and the Group’s core business. Being part of a much larger organisation guarantees the companies financial stability, and makes Digital Metal a reliable partner in the long term. It can also leverage its parent company’s worldwide presence and well-developed supply chain to ensure deliveries.
Digital Metal has developed its own unique proprietary precision ink-jet technology for making complex metallic components. It begins with an object described in a CAD file. This is materialised in its 3D printer, which works by laying down powdered metal in thin layers, interspersed with a special ink/glue. Once complete, the object is sintered for strength. The result is a metal component or part with high resolution and tolerance.
An additional third step can be introduced to refine surface equality.
Materials Digital Metal’s components are currently predominantly made from stainless steel. However, other materials such as titanium, silver and copper are close to commercialisation."
