Höganäs, Sweden, has installed a Digital Metal® P2000 Additive Manufacturing system at French industrial institute CETIM, the Technical Centre for the Mechanical Industry, in St Etienne, France. According to Niclas Malm, who is responsible for Digital Metal service and support, the first tests of the machine were completed within two days of its arrival at the centre.

The Digital Metal P2000 is equipped with an upgraded build box, upgraded ink supply system and upgraded powder handling system, stated Hans Kimblad, who is responsible for Digital Metal technical development at Höganäs.

CETIM was created in 1965 in order to provide companies with the means and training to improve their competitiveness, take part in standardisation, establish a relationship between scientific research and industry, promote technical progress, provide assistance to improve performance and guarantee quality. Today, the centre is turning towards technological and organisational research programmes, in a more open context at European and international levels.

Höganäs’ Digital Metal is designed to enable the mass Additive Manufacturing of metal parts. Currently, the company produces components predominantly in stainless steel – however, other materials such as titanium, silver and copper are in development.
