DM P2500 – 3D metal printing at its best

With a building volume of 203 x 180 x 69 mm, the DM P2500 allows a fast, flexible and cost-effective production of metal parts directly from CAD data.

Benefits

  • High productivity
  • Robust machine design; Made for serial production and prototyping
  • Prints without support structures; This will minimise your need for post processing and increase productivity as well as powder utilisation.
  • Recycling of metal powder; Close to 100 % of the powder, not turned into components, is recycled
  • Stacking components when printing; No support structure and less than 1 mm distance needed between components, enables multiple level printing in one print box. This increases your productivity without sacrificing time.
  • High accuracy and repeatability; Gives you the opportunity to go into serial production
  • Excellent surface quality; With an average surface roughness of Ra6 µm directly after completion, time spent on post-processing is kept at a minimum
  • Fast change-over; Merely 15-25 min are needed to start the next print job
  • Operates at room temperature; Means no time-consuming heat up and cool down cycles
  • No protective atmosphere needed; Eliminates need of costly inert gas
  • Easy to clean and maintain; Saves time
  • Powered by Digital Metal technology; A proprietary technology developed by Digital Metal, based on high-precision binder-jetting on metal powder bed
