Arcam Uses Electron Beam Melting (EBM) for 3D Printing Metal Implants

—————————————————————————–

Arcam is a Swedish company founded in 1997.  Arcam provides cost-effective 3D printing solutions for metal parts.  The Arcam EBM (Electronic Beam Melting) builds metal parts from metal powder by melting the metal powder with a powerful electronic beam.  The electron beam is precisely controlled using electromagnetic coils.

Arcam uses the EBM technology to manufacture patient specific orthopedic implants.  Computer Tomography (CT) is used to build a CAD model of a patient specific implant and EBM technology is used to 3D print the part from the CAD model.
