Freemelt, Mölndal, Sweden, has received an order for a Freemelt ONE Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine from Linköping University. The machine, scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2022, will be used in materials research.

“The research activities at Linköping University on metal Additive Manufacturing initially focused mainly on characterisation of AM materials and design for AM,” stated Johan Moverare, Professor in Engineering Materials at Linköping University. “However, during the recent years we have been working more also on material development for AM, a field we think is of great importance for the continued development of the AM field. Therefore, we are very glad to announce our acquisition of a Freemelt ONE machine that will further strengthen our capabilities in material and process development for AM.”

Ulric Ljungblad, CEO of Freemelt, added, “The order from Linköping University to yet another university in Sweden consolidates our position in materials research equipment with 3D printing on our home market. It shows that research on materials and applications focusing on Swedish industry is a good match for the technology and solutions in Freemelt ONE. Linköping University is a leader in applied materials research with its own high-class materials laboratory for testing and development. Freemelt’s office and production facility in Linköping is directly adjacent to Linköping University, which creates excellent opportunities for collaborations with the research group in Linköping.”
