Arcam AB, the Swedish manufacturer of industrial 3D printers owned by GE Additive, has broken ground on its newest facility. The facility, which will enable the GE Additive company to meet demand increases, will be located in the Mölnlycke Business Park outside of Gothenburg.

According to a Linkedin post, the metal AM specialist will be relocating its existing factories in Krokslätts to the Mölnlycke Business Park by this summer. The new facility will be housed on a site that Elanders, the Swedish printing company, used to occupy.

At a recent ground breaking ceremony, Arcam CEO Karl Lindblom drove the bulldozer, marking the beginning of the company’s expansion. Also in attendance were Henrik Axelsson from Castellum; Johan Svennerberg from Trustees Castellum; KimDahlström, Arcam’s construction project manager; FredrikBäckström, the head of Product Supply at Arcam; and local leaders.

Arcam Swedish facility

Arcam is best known for its Electronic Beam Melting (EBM) technology, an additive manufacturing process capable of building up dense metal components from a bed of metal powder. In the process, a high power electron beam is managed by electromagnetic coils, which provide fast and accurate beam control. Notably, EBM systems can create several metal melt pools at once, resulting in faster build times.

Last Spring, GE Additive presented the latest Arcam system, the Spectra H metal 3D printer, which boasts 50% faster build speeds than previous models. The product release marked the first first system put out by Arcam since it was acquired by GE in 2016.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
