Digital Metal Updates Software for DM P2500 Printer

HÖGANÄS, Sweden, Apr 8, 2020 – Digital Metal has launched a new software upgrade that triples the printing speed of its DM P2500 printer. This allows for significantly larger production volume per time unit while keeping the renowned high component quality.

Digital Metal’s DM P2500 metal binder jetting printer is a robust machine where no efforts have been spared to make it as accurate as possible. As an example, all moving parts in the DM P2500 have an accuracy down to single microns, which vouches for excellent repeatability in serial production. In addition, a 160 mm thick custom-made diabase stone is used to bring stability and ensure that no vibrations affect the printing process.

The reliability and repeatability in combination with high productivity makes the DM P2500 ideal for serial production of small complex metal components. With fine surface quality and resolution and the fact that no supports are needed when printing, keeps waste and time spent on post processing at a minimum.

Now, the printer has been upgraded with new software that triples its printing speed. This allows to produce significantly larger component volumes per time unit while keeping excellent component quality. The new software is standard on all new units and upgrade kits are available for installed printers.

“We constantly work to improve the performance of our printers so that our customers can work as cost-effectively as possible”, says 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.”
