Sweden’s Arcam AB has announced it has received an order for ten Arcam EBM systems from Avio Aero based in Turin, Italy. Avio Aero, a subsidiary of GE Aviation, is moving into series production of its state of the art turbine blades, and has decided to double its Arcam EBM machine capacity.

“These machines will be vital to move to series production of turbine blades. Arcam is the leading supplier of titanium alloy additive manufacturing systems and we again turned to them with confidence, having used their products for years”, says Giacomo Vessia, Plant Leader at Avio Aero.

“This is the largest single order ever for Arcam EBM systems. The deal confirms the potential of the Arcam EBM technology as a volume production system for the aerospace industry. We truly look forward to supporting Avio Aero in their turbine blade manufacturing”, says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.
