ARC Group Worldwide, Inc., has announced that its 3D printing/Additive Manufacturing division, 3D Material Technologies, LLC, (3DMT) has further expanded its metal Additive Manufacturing capacity with the purchase of new machines from Concept Laser and EOS.

The new machines, a Concept Laser M2 Cusing 400W Dual Laser and an EOSINT M280, will add to 3DMT’s already significant metal 3D printing experience and capacity, as well as its leading plastic 3D printing capabilities.

“We have recently experienced increased demand for our Additive Metal/3D printing services from the aerospace industry, Department of Energy, Department of Defence, and medical device markets, which led us to purchase these new machines. Further, with production jobs from our existing customers tying up significant existing capacity, the additional equipment allows us to continue to use our expertise in powder metals to increase capacity and develop new materials not currently being offered,” stated Ashley Nichols, General Manager of 3DMT.

“Notably, we will be working on new aluminium alloys, as well as high strength, high temperature ferrous alloys, which are of great interest to our customers. We have been quite encouraged by this recent increase in adoption of metal 3D printing by clients who traditionally used legacy manufacturing processes, and believe this is potentially indicative of the future market opportunity that additive metals may have,” added Nichols.

Overall, these additional machines will significantly increase 3DMT’s capacity and reduce lead time to support customers in the aerospace, defence, dental, and medical industries, as well as in ARC’s metal injection moulding, injection moulding, tooling, and various capabilities. Further, these new machines have the capability of making a wide variety of parts out of Inconel 625, Inconel 718, titanium, aluminium, stainless steel, cobalt chrome, and maraging steel.
