Digital Metal DM P2500 becomes first binder jetting system to achieve UL certification

Digital Metal’s DM P2500 is the first binder jetting system to achieve UL certification

 

Digital Metal has announced that its DM P2500 has become the first metal binder jetting Additive Manufacturing system to receive UL certification. Founded in 1894 and headquartered in the USA, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is the world’s largest, not-for-profit product safety testing and certification organisation. The new UL certification proves that the DM P2500 printer meets all expected standards for the US and Canadian markets.

Digital Metal stated it has received notice of completion of product testing and authorisation to apply the UL Mark to its metal binder jetting system DM P2500. The company’s proprietary binder jetting technology enables the production of high-quality complex objects with superior surface finish. Digital Metal also offers manufacturing of metal components.

The technical team at Digital Metal stated that during the concept phase of its DM P2500 system, the requirements for both UL and CE certification were addressed. Preparation for meeting these standards involves all steps of developing and designing a new machine. Each single component and system in the machine must be taken into account. Not only does it ensure machine safety, it also contributes to good working environment.

“Employee and customers safety should be the number one priority for every business owner. It is crucial that the equipment you use on a regular basis is working properly and more importantly, that it is manufactured and installed correctly. The UL certification is an important way to ensure that and we are very happy to receive it,” stated Ralf Carlström, General Manager at Digital Metal.

Digital Metal was founded in 2012 and has its headquarters in Höganäs, Sweden. The company is part of the Höganäs Group, the world’s largest producer of metal powders.
