BEAMIT adds eighth AM system from SLM Solutions

November 19, 2019

 

Italy’s BEAMIT is reported to have acquired a SLM 500 quad-laser system, their third SLM Solutions machine of the year, bringing their total to eight Additive Manufacturing units from SLM Solutions. BEAMIT is one of the largest Additive Manufacturing suppliers in Europe, and is reported to have over 20 years of experience with the technology.

Holding a number of quality certifications, including ISO 9100 for aerospace, energy and automotive, it was reported that BEAMIT will use their newest AM machine to further expand into the motorsport and automotive market. To target these segments, BEAMIT plans to use the open parameter access of SLM machines to develop custom, high-speed parameters for Al2024X and Al6061.

“This summer we announced that Sandvik acquired a stake in BEAMIT because of our well-recognised expertise in metal Additive Manufacturing, and our partnership with SLM Solutions allows us to further leverage that expertise,” stated Mauro Antolotti, Chairman and Founder of BEAMIT. “With the advanced material knowledge of Sandvik and the parameter freedom of the SLM machine, we plan to develop top-quality parameters targeting the specific needs of our high-performance automotive and racing customers.”

“The benefits of SLM Solutions’ machines, including open parameters and multi-laser productivity, will help BEAMIT offer their customers unique solutions,” added Meddah Hadjar, CEO of SLM Solutions. “They purchased two selective laser systems earlier this year to develop parameters for nickel-based alloys and we are confident that they will have an equal amount of success in advancing aluminium parameters for the industry on their newest SLM 500.”
