BeAM to introduce new industrial metal AM machines at formnext

BeAM’s Magic machines are in use around the world

BeAM, a French manufacturer of industrial metal Additive Manufacturing machines using the Laser Metal Deposition process, will showcase its new Magic 2.0 and Modulo machines at formnext, Germany, November 15-18 2016. BeAM will be on booth 3.1- J70 together with its partner Addup, the metal Additive Manufacturing company set up by Fives and Michelin.

BeAM also announced that it has reached a milestone in Additive Manufacturing with the qualification of flight critical aerospace components. The company said that it had achieved this with its first machines Mobile and Magic 2.0 through its partnership with Chromalloy, a leading supplier of technologically advanced repairs, coatings and services for critical turbine engine components. Chromalloy is a global supplier to commercial airlines, the military and industrial turbine applications.

The Mobile and Magic machines are in use around the world, with customers including Safran, Chromalloy, Polytechnique ESTIA and others. The Magic 2.0 machine is in production and is being delivered to several customers, whilst the Modulo machine is available for pre-order and will be delivered in June 2017.

“Our philosophy at BeAM is not to integrate the DED processes in existing machines and then ask our customers to adapt to the limits of technology. On the contrary, we develop customised machines which harness the potential of our processes, nozzles and software. This is what allows us to innovate continuously with our R & D ecosystem. Our machines are constantly evolving to meet more industrial applications opportunities and this is what the market expects,” stated Emeric d’Arcimoles, President of BeAM.
