Arcam offers large EBM system for Additive Manufacturing in the aerospace industry

6th Jan, 2014

Sweden’s Arcam AB has recently launched the Arcam Q20, a new Electron Beam Melting (EBM) system designed specifically for manufacturing in the aerospace industry. The new EBM system was developed with support from leading aerospace manufacturers and is based on Arcam’s Q10 technology platform but with a larger build envelope (Ø350×380 mm).

Arcam is primarily active in two market segments, the aerospace and the orthopaedic implant industries. The orthopaedic industry started using EBM systems in 2007, and today the process is well established with more than 30,000 EBM-manufactured orthopaedic devices implanted worldwide.

The aerospace industry is about to move into series production for several product applications, states Arcam, and the new Arcam Q20 provides several new features for industrial volume production, including increased productivity, higher resolution, and a camera-based monitoring system for part quality verification.

“With Arcam Q20 we sharpen our offering to one of our main markets, the aerospace industry. Arcam Q20 represents a new EBM generation, with a focus on continued industrialisation of the technology”, stated Magnus René, CEO of Arcam. “Arcam Q20 strengthens our already strong product program for aerospace manufacturing, a market that puts high demands on both the technology and the application expertise. The first Arcam Q20 user will be Poly-Shape in France.”
