Arcam to display titanium parts made via Electron Beam Melting technology at EuroMold 2011

November 22, 2011

Swedish additive manufacturing company Arcam AB will be exhibiting a range of products made via their Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology at this years EuroMold 2011, held in Frankfurt, Germany, November 29 – December 02.


The components on display include those fabricated from titanium alloy Ti6Al4V, Titanium aluminide and Cobalt-chrome, made using their Arcam A1 and A2 systems.

The EBM® technology builds parts layer-by-layer from metal powder using a powerful electron beam. The EBM® process is carried out in vacuum at an elevated temperature allowing for first-class material properties, mechanically and chemically.

To date, more than 20,000 EBM-manufactured acetabular cups with integrated porous structures for improved bone ingrowth have been implanted, and today the equivalent of 2% of the global acetabular cup production is manufactured via EBM, states the company.

The EBM technology is also used for pilot production of aero engine parts in gamma titanium aluminide (γ-TiAl).

Arcam offers a complete portfolio of EBM® machines, auxiliary equipment, software, powder metals, service and training.
