BEAMIT and Elementum 3D cooperate to develop EU speciality materials market

November 15, 2019

BEAMIT SpA, Fornovo di Taro, Italy, and Elementum 3D, Erie, Colorado, USA, have signed an agreement to promote each other’s expertise and develop the market for speciality materials in the EU. BEAMIT specialises in Additive Manufacturing and believes that it has the one of the largest AM fleets in Europe.

The company has now expanded its service to create AM business cases including AM process set-up, heat treatment and post-processing of materials that include new alloys developed by Elementum 3D. BEAMIT supports technical developments at Elementum 3D and will act as a European distributor for these powder materials.

According to Elementum 3D, its core business is materials development and distribution of advanced metals, composites, and ceramics. The company explained that it is continuously looking for new solutions to help companies control the cost, weight and performance of critical parts. The partnering of Elementum 3D and BEAMIT is expected to create opportunities for manufactures to produce the highest quality AM components at production scale quantities.

“We are pleased to announce our cooperation agreement with Elementum 3D,” stated Mauro Antolotti, President, BEAMIT. “In a joint venture project BEAMIT and Elementum 3D will work on further material development parameters for all the alloys that Elementum 3D will design and realise in the Colorado facility, keep focus on certain advanced material properties.”

“Targeted parameter sets are necessary to achieve optimal results during the selective laser melting process and BEAMIT’s technical experience as an experienced metal Additive Manufacturing user will allow them to develop unique parameters with high-quality characteristics,” he added. “The knowledge-sharing between the two companies during this process will be mutually beneficial in creating a shorter timeframe for parameter testing.”

Steve Wagner, Vice President of Sales at Elementum 3D, commented, “Elementum 3D is looking forward to a successful cooperation with BEAMIT. Their extensive knowledge of selective laser melting technology combined with superior technical expertise will directly relate to faster releases of AM materials in demand. More importantly, this partnership benefits companies searching for an effective and efficient manufacturing process to bring a game-changing idea, concept or totally new product to market in record time.”
