AMEXCI OY, the Finish subsidiary of AMEXCI established in 2021, has invested in its first Additive Manufacturing machine, an AMCM M 290-2 from AMCM GmbH, an EOS Group company. The Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine will be installed at AMEXCI’s newly-built Additive Manufacturing lab in Tampere, Finland.

The company explains that its investment in the new AM machine is essential in AMEXCI’s goal of connecting the Nordics, allowing the company to provide higher quality services and products to customers locally in Finland. AMEXCI states that it is already supporting its customers to develop business cases, designing for AM and this investment will also enable localised production of parts.

Additive Manufacturing in Finland has reportedly matured in previous years, and AMEXCI OY already works closely with its Finnish shareholders, Wärtsilä and Stora Enso. AMEXCI’s strategic presence in both Sweden and Finland aims to strengthen the collaboration between shareholders, partners and customers in Finland, creating an Additive Manufacturing hub for continuous development in metal AM.

“We are excited to have our first industrial 3D printing system in production by Q3,” stated Johannes Karjalainen, Managing Director, AMEXCI OY. “Our lab in Tampere is constructed according to highest industry standards and responds to the demands for high-quality AM parts and safe AM environments. This acquisition allows us to push metal AM forward across the Baltic Sea and the rest of the Nordics.”

AMXECI explains that compared to the EOS M 290, the AMCM M 290-2 has two 400-watt lasers providing AMEXCI customers with EOS M 290 technology while almost doubling the productivity and reducing customers’ cost per part. Additionally, the AM machine comes with Optical Tomography (OT), which provides users with data from the Additive Manufacturing process, containing quality indicators based on the specific requirements for each build.

Markus Glasser, SVP EMEA at EOS, commented, “Both EOS and AMEXCI believe in AM facilitating unique applications, and AMEXCI is the perfect end-to-end solution partner for us. Beyond the system installation, EOS Oy will co-operate with AMEXCI Oy to further push innovation in metal AM and develop new materials and parameter sets for our technology.”
