BeAM, a French manufacturer of industrial metal Additive Manufacturing machines using Directed Energy Deposition (DED), has opened a US subsidiary, BeAM Machines, Inc., in Cincinnati, Ohio. The new 20,000 ft2 facility will handle sales, service, process development, applications, research & development and training, and will operate as the BeAM Solutions Center for North America.
Tim Bell has been appointed as General Manager for the new facility. “I am excited to introduce American companies to BeAM’s DED technology. Our ability to provide solutions that meet our customers’ needs is the result of design and manufacturing through a system of collaboration, feedback and experience across multiple industries including aeronautic, aerospace, defence, nuclear, and oil & gas. And our solution-oriented support minimizes both technological and financial risks for these customers, while maximizing their competitive advantage through innovation,” stated Bell.
“Opening a US Subsidiary is a major milestone, given the prospects for robust and rapid growth harboured by the American market. BeAM intends to become a major player in the US, which has become the world leader in Additive Manufacturing,” stated BeAM’s CEO Emeric d’Arcimoles.
