Mitsubishi to expand metal AM services with new Binder Jetting machine from Digital Metal
July 9, 2021
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd., part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) based in Ritto, Shiga Prefecture, Japan, is expanding its metal Additive Manufacturing services with the addition of a new Binder Jetting (BJT) machine from Digital Metal, part of Sweden’s Höganäs Group.
In addition to MHI Machine Tool’s range of LAMDA AM machines, using its proprietary Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process for the production of large-scale components, the new DMP2500 metal AM machine from Digital Metal will allow small-scale parts to be produced.
The DMP2500’s BJT technology is said to enable precise manufacturing and is engineered especially for high-volume production.
MHI Machine Tool states that it can now respond to a broad range of metal AM needs and provide the optimal manufacturing method and equipment. The expanded service lineup will enable the production of a full range of metal parts, from small components of 1 mm to large-scale parts exceeding one meter.
