Amplify Additive, Scarborough, Maine, USA, a metal Additive Manufacturing start-up which specialises in orthopaedic implants, is producing a range of titanium implants using GE Additive Arcam’s Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. The company operates three Arcam EBM Q10plus machines at its facility in Scarborough.

The Arcam EBM Q10plus is designed for the industrial production of orthopaedic implants, and operates under vacuum at elevated temperatures to provide material properties that exceed industry standards.

Brian McLaughlin, President, CEO, and Founder of Amplify Additive, stated, “By 3D printing titanium with this Electron Beam Melting technology, we can produce implants that not only have never been able to be designed and manufactured before but provide a better quality of care for patients.”

McLaughlin added, “Because we have experience on all sides of the industry – design & manufacturing with one of the largest orthopaedic suppliers, clinical experience as an orthopaedic implant distributor, unique and specific experience helping commercialise the 3rd generation Arcam platform, and having had an opportunity to provide guidance to the FDA on Additive Manufacturing – we fully understand what it takes to bring an additive product through the FDA and out to the market. This complete experience is what separates us from other suppliers.”
