Christian Lönne has been appointed the new CEO of Digital Metal, a Höganäs’ subsidiary that manufactures 3D printers for metal powders.

He replaces Ralf Carlström, who will take the role of leader of Höganäs’ metal injection molding (MIM) business.

Digital Metal was founded in 2010 and sells or leases its printers on the international market. On its premises in Höganäs, the company also prints components in small to large series for global customers.

‘Digital Metal is ready to take the next step in their development,’ said Fredrik Emilson, CEO of Höganäs. ‘In the future, we will invite other partners to accelerate technological development and increase our global presence. Christian, with his background and experience, is a perfect pilot in developing the business and building a stable commercial platform for Digital Metal.’
