Freemelt Holding AB, Mölndal, Sweden, has reported its sixth order in the North American research market is to Texas A&M University. The order includes the new ProHeat technology and the build preparation software Pixelmelt. The university plans to use the machine for research in high-temperature materials.
“Freemelt ONE is an important part of the rapidly growing segment of 3D printing in research and development,” stated Daniel Gidlund, Freemelt’s CEO. “The order is the third in December and once again demonstrates our ability to deliver equipment that meets the highest requirements in advanced materials research. This shows that our products are very attractive for the most advanced research facilities in the world.”
The interest in the research system Freemelt ONE is increasing in North America, the company’s main market. During 2022, Freemelt has received five orders from leading American universities, supplementing the breakthrough order to an industrial customer in December 2021.
Mohsen Taheri Andani, incoming assistant professor in mechanical engineering, added, “We are thrilled to have a Freemelt electron beam system in the lab at Texas A&M University, which is a fantastic way to conduct cutting-edge research on high-temperature materials. Developing new materials requires a robust open-access system. Stay tuned for our upcoming publications.”
The machine is expected to be delivered to Texas A&M in the third quarter of 2023.
