Freemelt AB, located in Mölndal, Sweden, has launched eMELT-iD, a new eMELT Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine at Formnext. The machine is designed to reduce product and application development times for customers, while enabling the seamless transition to large-scale serial production with the eMELT-iM.

The eMELT-iD is said to be a crucial milestone in Freemelt’s strategic plan to position itself as a productivity partner and key player that improves productivity and service to maximise customer value.

“This further strengthens our value to the customer compared to competing solutions, as we offer a complete product and service portfolio that supports industrial customers from product idea to full-scale serial production,” stated Daniel Gidlund, Freemelt’s CEO. “What makes eMELT-iD exceptional is the seamless integration with eMELT-iM, enabling a smooth transition from product development to serial production.”

In contrast to machines that are initially developed and then scaled up for productivity, the eMELT-iD version is based on the core technology for serial production from eMELT-iM.

“We have high expectations for this year’s Formnext, an important context for us to show both customers and the industry that with eMELT-iD we are further improving the conditions for large-scale metal 3D printing with electron beam technology,” Gidlund added.

The eMELT-iD is based on Freemelt’s proven open-source technology and designed for industrial application development.

Per Woxenius, head of product management, added, “Together with our research system Freemelt ONE, eMELT-iD will be an important bridge and enablement for optimised transfer of material processes, as well as product development to initial production and later full-scale serial production in Freemelt’s eMELT-iM.”

Freemelt is now exhibiting at Formnext 2023 at Hall 12, E138.
