Digital Metal® is Höganäs' proprietary ink-jet technology for additive manufacturing and 3D printing of metal components and systems. This unique process allows for rapid production of highly complex designs and intricate features.
Key benefits of the technique include high precision and excellent surface quality. Digital Metal allows manufacture of mass-customised components or flexible serial volumes.
A characteristic application is industrial products with undercuts, ducts, cavities and internal structures. In jewellery, furniture and accessories industries, Digital Metal enables more freedom for creative design. It also offers interesting prospects for lightweighting of non-critical components in aerospace applications.
Products are currently predominantly manufactured from stainless steel, while titanium, silver and copper are close to commercialisation. Höganäs Group is best known for its pioneering work in metal powders.
