GE Additive has reported the opening of its Arcam EBM Center of Excellence in Gothenburg, Sweden. The new 15,000 m2 facility has capacity for up to 500 employees, is said to triple the floor space of Arcam EBM’s previous site in Mölndal, Sweden, and will help to meet growing industry demand for Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology.

According to GE Additive, having production, R&D, training facilities and support functions all housed under one roof, allows it to put lean manufacturing at the heart of its operations to increase production capacity. As more industrial additive users begin to make the shift to serial production, the company stated that demand for its Arcam EBM systems is continuing to grow.

“The Arcam EBM team in Gothenburg is energised to be in its new home – a dynamic, sustainable workplace – in a great location. We will harness that energy and continue to research, innovate and drive EBM technology further,” stated Karl Lindblom, General Manager GE Additive Arcam EBM.

“Throughout, we have benefited immensely from GE’s experience and know-how in applying lean manufacturing. Customers joining our annual user group meeting next month will be the first to see our Center of Excellence – which we hope will become a focal point for the entire additive industry.”
