Freemelt AB, headquartered in Mölndal, Sweden, has entered into a strategic collaboration with 3DMZ (3D Makers Zone), based in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Within the collaboration, 3DMZ aims to establish a new metal field lab and invest in an eMELT-iD, Freemelt’s Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine, by Q4 2024.

As a result of its increased commercialisation efforts, Freemelt is reportedly gaining substantial interest and growing demand from European companies. This includes the development of critical tungsten components for defence and energy applications, as well as industries with a high sense of urgency to establish local manufacturing to secure supply chains.

Herman van Bolhuis, 3DMZ CEO, added, “We are thrilled to enter this collaboration. The AM market is maturing, and the manufacturing world is in need of digital supply chain solutions. Freemelt offers the next generation of metal printers. However, there is a lot to learn and to develop at the same time. By shaping this new field lab, the AM Campus Amsterdam will offer additional technology to its scope of solutions already in place. At the same time, several industrial partners will be invited to enter the new field lab ecosystem.”
