BeAM Machines, Inc. to host Open House event at new Cincinnati facility

August 17, 2017

BeAM Machines SAS, a leading European specialist in providing Directed Energy Deposition (DED) solutions, opened its US subsidiary, BeAM Machines, Inc., in Cincinnati, Ohio earlier this year. The facility, operating as the BeAM Machines Solutions Center for North America, handles sales, service, process/material development, applications, R&D and training.

The 20,000 ft2 facility houses a dedicated Additive Manufacturing workspace, metallurgical lab, applications training facility, assembly area and post process machining department. BeAM will be hosting an Open House from 11am-8pm on Thursday, August 31 at its facility located at 5101 Creek Road in Blue Ash. Attendees will have the opportunity to view live demonstrations of the company’s flagship machine, the Magic 2.0, and tour the facility.

According to Tim Bell, General Manager of BeAM Machines, Inc., “We chose Blue Ash as the location for our facility because it is the largest suburban employment centre in greater Cincinnati with nearly 40,000 jobs. Additionally, it is centrally located to the major highways, is approximately 30 minutes to the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky International Airport and is populated with a very high concentration of potential customers and suppliers.”

BeAM Machines, Inc. manufactures Additive Manufacturing machines which use a combination of DED and computer numeric control (CNC). DED works by feeding metallic powder through a deposition nozzle and melting it with a high-power laser to create a layer-by-layer construction with CNC controlled accuracy.

The machines support a range of materials such as stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys and cobalt chromium to manufacture and repair parts for clients in multiple industries, including aerospace, defence, nuclear and oil & gas.

BeAM’s Additive Manufacturing machine solutions range from the Mobile, a small scale 5-axis machine optimised for material research, small production volumes as well as the repair of thin wall and complex parts, to the Magic 2.0, a large scale 5 axis machine designed for serial production or repair of high value components in industries with long lead times and high buy-to-fly ratios.

The new Modulo, a medium scale fully integrated 5 axis serial production machine, is ideal for constrained space environments and even remote places such as oil rigs, military conflict zones.
