JEOL USA Inc, based in Peabody, Massachusetts, USA, has reported the installation of a JAM-5200EBM Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine at Cumberland Additive, located at the Neighborhood 91 advanced manufacturing production campus at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Prior to its arrival in North America, the JAM-5200EBM AM machine underwent an operational qualification at JEOL’s manufacturing facility in Japan. The results of this qualification demonstrated that the machine meets the minimum requirements specified in AMS 7011 for PBF-EB machines. Once at the Cumberland facility, the machine was reported to be fully operational within six days.

Cumberland Additive CEO Dawne Hickton, stated, “This collaboration with JEOL signifies a new era in advanced Additive Manufacturing at Neighborhood 91. We look forward to harnessing the capabilities of the JAM-5200EBM E-Beam system and unlocking new possibilities in the world of materials science and 3D printing.”

The JAM5200EBM machine at Cumberland Additive will initially focus on processing titanium alloy, although a second hopper and feeder system can be added to enable a seamless transition to produce components in pure copper and Nickel 718 alloy, for example.

“JEOL has been the leading supplier of electron-beam based imaging instruments and manufacturing tools for seventy-five years and has a well-established global customer service organisation. However, we are a relative newcomer to the Additive Manufacturing machine market,” explained Robert Pohorenec, JEOL USA president. “The opportunity to collaborate with an Additive Manufacturing leader like Cumberland Additive in the Neighborhood 91 Additive Manufacturing campus provides us the perfect partner and location to introduce the JAM-5200EBM electron beam system in North America and to demonstrate our commitment to customer service.”
