Additive Manufacturing Customized Machines (AMCM), an EOS Group company based in Starnberg, Germany, was founded five years ago to provide the market with bespoke industrial metal Additive Manufacturing machines. The company offers AM solutions with varying degrees of customisation based on proven EOS technology and processes, and lists the USA as the main market for its large systems.

Driven by the aerospace company Launcher, among others, the company developed its AMCM M 4K Additive Manufacturing machine. The goal was to additively manufacture combustion chambers in one piece, enabling an optimised design of the internal cooling channels, a reduction in components, process simplification and lower overall costs. The machine was said to be the first capable of additively manufacturing components up to 1000 mm high.

In the USA, aerospace suppliers such as Sintavia and Morf3D use machines from AMCM to serve the high local demand. In Europe, ArianeGroup is also reported to rely on the AMCM M 4K, taking its designs for aerospace launch systems to the next level.

A recent cooperation with Hyperganic, a company involved in the design of components using Artificial Intelligence, demonstrates the use of scaled AM to enable increasingly advanced manufacturing. Using AMCM’s technology, Hyperganic additively manufactures AI-designed aerospike engines (approximately 800 mm in height) in a single piece.

“We are rising to this challenge and are pushing ahead with further development based on AMCM M 4K,” stated Martin Bullemer, Managing Director, AMCM.

AMCM is also involved in the ultra-fine structures in the micron range of materials, such as tungsten for the anti-scatter grids in computer tomographs.

AMCM will present the complete range of its technology at Formnext 2022, which will take place November 15-18 in Frankfurt, in Hall 11.1/Booth C51. While AMCM will display the large build volumes and copper Additive Manufacturing examples, the company will also showcase its capability for ultra-fine structures.
