Freemelt Holding AB, Mölndal, Sweden, has received an order from the University of Michigan, USA, for a Freemelt ONE Additive Manufacturing machine. The research team at the University of Michigan intends to use the Freemelt ONE to develop new Additive Manufacturing techniques, as well as developing both new and existing materials.
“The order shows that Freemelt ONE is an important part of the rapidly growing segment for 3D printing in research and development. Thus, we continue to strengthen our leading position as a supplier in the important and substantial R&D market,” stated Daniel Gidlund, CEO of Freemelt.
Wenda Tan, assistant professor in mechanical engineering at University of Michigan, added, “We chose Freemelt ONE system because its open architecture will offer us full control of the printing process and allow us to fully explore the potential of [PBF-EB] technology. We will use this system to perform research in process understanding and optimisation, in-situ monitoring and control, and design of novel materials and structures.”
