Digital Metal AB, Höganäs, Sweden, reports that Cetim has installed one of its Metal Binder Jet Additive Manufacturing machines at its site in Cluses, France. Cetim was one of the first customers to install a Digital Metal machine in 2017, at its facility in Saint-Étienne, France.

Cetim Cluses is said to be located in a region with a long production heritage of small and complex parts, the Swiss watch industry being a typical customer. The Cluses valley is the base for some 1,000 companies, and Cetim’s focus is to support them in production digitalisation, lean manufacturing, environmental issues and worker training.

Thierry Gautreau, responsible for Industry 4.0 and companies transformation support at Cetim Cluses, explained, “The Digital Metal Binder Jetting technology fits the production requirements in our region perfectly. Our customers typically produce complex parts with high demands on quality for the automotive, medical and aeronautic industries.”

“Digital Metal’s Binder Jetting technology is state-of-the-art and can create complicated and highly detailed designs. Another advantage is that there is a potential for wider material choices than with AM processes like SLM that use melting. We are delighted to be able to offer this to the companies we work with,” he continued.

“Digital Metal’s technology offers great potential for metal AM productivity and capability. The technology is suitable both for making complex parts in small quantities, like individual medical implants, but also for mass production of several thousand parts due to its speed and no need for extra support to be removed.”

“The first printer installed by our sister company in Saint Étienne has lived up to all our expectations. And now we are really looking forward to helping our customers implement this technology which will allow them to sharpen their competitive edge,” he concluded.
