Freemelt AB, based in Mölndal, Sweden, has received the first eMELT-iD order in the Americas from a university aiming to accelerate Additive Manufacturing as a manufacturing technology for serial production of industrial metal applications. The total order value is approximately $600,000 (MSEK 6.6), with expected delivery in Q2 2024.

The eMELT-iD is an Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine based on Freemelt’s proven open-source technology. The AM machine is designed for industrial application development, reducing the time to market and the related cost of new applications for full-scale production via Additive Manufacturing.
