Industrial metal Additive Manufacturing company Delva Oy, Hämeenlinna, Finland, has expanded its metal AM capabilities with its investment in a further EOS M290 metal Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) machine from EOS GmbH, Krailling, Germany. The contract for the machine purchase was signed at the Subcontracting Trade Fair in Tampere, Finland, on September 21.
Founded in 2017, Delva Oy acquired its first EOS AM machines and began production in 2019. The company offers design and engineering services, as well as metal Additive Manufacturing prototype and serial production.
Jarmo Kastell, Delva’s CEO, sees metal Additive Manufacturing taking a foothold alongside conventional manufacturing methods, and the increased capacity is an essential step for the company. “Delva offers Finland’s widest range of materials and offers the industry new opportunities to build solutions with materials that work even in highly extreme conditions. Moreover, with several machines, we always serve our customers flexibly and reliably.”
Markku Lindqvist, Delva’s Chief Technology Officer, added, “EOS’s technology lead in hardware development, quality, excellent cooperation and especially the strength offered by EOS Turku, which focuses on materials research and development, are the foundation of our decision. The core of Delva is deep know-how and its tireless further development. The cooperation with EOS is seamless. We operate from the customer’s needs, and we will continue to make the impossible possible when the needs of our customers so require. Here, EOS is the best partner.”
