Additive Manufacturing equipment manufacturer Arcam AB, Sweden, has announced that Inconel 718® is now a qualified material for use in the company’s Electron Beam Melting (EBM) systems. Inconel 718 is a high-strength, corrosion resistant, nickel-chromium based superalloy suitable for a range of demanding applications.

“With the introduction of the Inconel 718 our customers in the aerospace industry can now further expand the range of components that they produce in their EBM machines”, stated Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.

The material properties comply with chemical requirements of UNS N07718 and properties of ASTM F3055-14 specification.

The Inconel process is initially available for the Arcam A2X platform. The machine material parameters and mechanical testing was done in collaboration with the US Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
