Arcam electron beam metal 3D printer

Our Arcam electron beam facility provides an excellent opportunity to have metal parts 3D printed at reasonably high rates of productivity in a range of materials. Specifications of our Arcam A1 model are as follows:

Two macines, the Arcam A1 e-beam machine. One with display screen and the other with start stop button.
Arcam A1 e-beam machine
  • Electron beam fusion power bed
  • 200 × 200 × 180 (mm) chamber build volume
  • 50 – 3000W beam power
  • Good part roughness Ra 25-35µm (Rt˜300µm)
  • 55-80cm3/h build rate (Ti-64)
  • High purity vacuum melting (<1×10-4bar)
  • Low residual stress
  • Standard Arcam materials (Ti-64, Ti-64 ELI, CoCr, CP Ti)
  • Prototyping, customising, topology & design optimisation, light-weighting
  • Batch process that runs between $4k and $10k (less when combining multiple builds)
  • Depends on part volumes and quantity in chamber
Metallic rings with grooves around edges. Presumably for crank like function. Impeller vanes
