If you had any questions regarding a potential slow down in 3D printing or additive manufacturing endeavors around the world, industry leaders like GE Additive should put those to rest, evidenced by a momentum that just doesn’t quit. Now, they are announcing the opening of another facility dedicated to AM, at the Arcam EBM Center of Excellence in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Featuring 15,000 square meters, the new site is centered in the Mölnlycke Business Park, within the Härryda municipality, southeast of Gothenburg. Up to 500 employees are expected to be working at the center, offering three times as much floor space as their previous building in Mölndal—and housing all production, research and development, and training and support divisions in one place.
GE Additive will now be able to place an even stronger focus on lean manufacturing, maximizing operations and production capacity, along with inviting more of their customers to learn about and make the transition to serial manufacturing with Arcam EBM systems. The plan is to continue expanding their ‘footprint’ in manufacturing, along with increasing research and development in both Europe and the US.
Today, GE Additive is comprised of Arcam EBM, Concept Laser, and additive material provider AP&C. Their highly integrated team is made up of experts in additive manufacturing, offering advanced technology and materials—all encouraging the clients they work with to strive for innovation within their industries, focusing on:
- Solving manufacturing challenges
- Improving business outcomes
- Helping change the world for the better
“The Arcam EBM team in Gothenburg is energized to be in its new home—a dynamic, sustainable workplace—in a great location. We will harness that energy and continue to research, innovate and drive EBM technology further,” said Karl Lindblom, general manager GE Additive Arcam EBM.
“Throughout, we have benefited immensely from GE’s experience and know-how in applying lean manufacturing. Customers joining our annual user group meeting next month will be the first to see our Center of Excellence—which we hope will become a focal point for the entire additive industry,” added Lindblom.
Both GE Additive and Arcam EBM continue to contribute innovations to both the 3D printing and additive manufacturing realm, from opening a variety of new facilities around the world to working with others in many projects, ranging from development of combat vehicles to 3D printed high fashion, and much more, including accelerating the industry with other partnerships.
Established in 1997, Arcam AB began working with EBM 3D printing technology and delivered their first system in 2003. Just acquired by GE Additive in 2017, they have made huge strides in strengthening their offerings with EBM, along with offering metal part production in volume—and a technology that promotes latitude in design, strong material properties, and stacking ability.
