Freemelt AB, Mölndal, Sweden, has entered a strategic collaboration with Weaream an Additive Manufacturing service provider based in Brescia, Lombardia, Italy. Together, the companies aim to use Freemelt’s eMELT Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machines for serial production.

”Freemelt and Weaream is a perfect match! It is exactly this kind of strategic collaboration the manufacturing industry needs and embraces – competence and application centres supporting industrial companies in the transition to more innovative manufacturing technology, like 3D printing,” stated Daniel Gidlund, Freemelt CEO. “This strategic partnership ensures that eMELT and the E-PBF technology (Electron Powder Bed Fusion) take another important step in establishing Freemelt and eMELT as the leading technology for innovative serial production of industrial applications.”

Industrial companies that are transitioning from traditional manufacturing to Additive Manufacturing can experience a significant gap in competence and support in application and product development, it was stated. This gap needs to be bridged to ensure an efficient transition to serial production with Additive Manufacturing, which is essential when moving towards a more innovative, cost-effective, and sustainable manufacturing sector.

Paolo Folgarait, Weaream CEO, added, ”With this strategic partnership, Weaream and Freemelt will enable the full potential by complementing each other perfectly to serve the market, support clients and the industry to adopt high-tech solutions based on new materials and the most innovative Additive Manufacturing technologies. Weaream is proud and excited about this collaboration with Freemelt.”

The Italian AM industry has been experiencing steady growth of approximately 20% over the past decade. The northern region has for many years been a cluster of key early adopters and innovative companies in research, design, and engineering, which have been driving the industrialisation of AM. The Italian State and the European Union are said to be strong drivers behind the successful development of Additive Manufacturing in Italy, providing funding and resources.

Maurizio Romeo, Weaream CTO, concluded, “Thanks to our long-term expertise in E-PBF technology, Weaream is a perfect partner for Freemelt to ensure that the eMELT technology will deliver effective industrial production of demanding applications, where new materials and cutting-edge technologies will make the difference.”
