Freemelt, Mölndal, Sweden, has received an order for a Freemelt ONE Additive Manufacturing machine from the University of Texas in El Paso, USA. The machine will be used for materials research and is scheduled to be delivered during the first quarter of 2022.

“The acquisition of the Freemelt ONE open-source Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion system will expand the existing capabilities in the W.M. Keck Center for 3D Innovation at UTEP, to propel research in various aspects of Additive Manufacturing, including new materials and monitoring, and furthering opportunities for students to engage in research experiences,” stated César A Terrazas-Nájera, Assistant Professor of Research.

Freemelt explains that the order from the University of Texas is the second to the US in a short time, signifying a great deal of interest in the company products in North America, which is now one of the its main markets.

Ulric Ljungblad, CEO of Freemelt, commented, “The University of Texas is a leader in 3D printing and, therefore, one of the most sought-after universities to have as a customer. The fact that they see the benefits of our solution to enable their research and development of materials bodes well for our future in the North American market.”
