Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Statesville, North Carolina, USA, has installed a further two large platform EOS M400-4 metal Additive Manufacturing machines from EOS GmbH, headquartered in Krailling, Germany. With this latest installation, KAM now has five large format EOS AM machines, with a total fleet of twenty AM machines installed at the company’s North Carolina facility.
The company reports it is seeing a surge in demand for large metal hypersonic parts, heat exchangers, turbomachinery, and monolithic components designed for space, aerospace, and defence applications. To meet this, in addition to its fleet of large and mid-size Additive Manufacturing machines, the company has twelve multi-axis CNC machine tools for an integrated advanced manufacturing supply chain.
“One of the biggest challenges to our industry is in building end-user confidence in the manufacturing supply chain,” commented Brad Keselowski, owner, and founder of Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing. “The rapid growth in both volume and size of additively manufactured parts must be answered with a corresponding increase in machine bandwidth, material availability, and finishing capability. Responding to this development is critical, and today we are adding two more large platform EOS M400-4 printers. The machine installation today speaks to KAM’s commitment to keep pace with the AM industry and our customer needs.”
