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.
