Zenith Tecnica, a supplier of titanium additively manufactured parts, headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, reports that it has completed the installation of its fourth and fifth GE Additive Arcam Q10plus Electron Beam Melting (EBM) machines. Matt Wielenga, CEO of Zenith, stated, “That makes five Arcam EBM machines in five years. We now have three Q10plus and two Q20plus systems and we believe that currently makes us one the largest EBM service bureaus in the world.”

According to the company, its investment in the two systems from GE Additive adds additional capacity to fulfil a number of newly-signed contracts with a US-based medical implant manufacturer, as well as customers from other sectors. Zenith Tecnica is ISO 13485 and AS9100 certified, and has completed IQ, OQ & PQ for medical implant manufacture on its existing Q10plus machine.

“We have additively manufactured over 400 components that are now in orbit. So, we’re used to working with highly-regulated industries, such as aerospace and defence and the medical sector,” added Wielenga. “Where we add even more value is through our very deep expertise to get the most out of EBM technology, design for additive – whether it is determining what geometry is possible, how to get the best finish, what tolerances are achievable, or simply how to reduce cost.”

“It’s great to see Zenith Tecnica’s business thrive. And although we’re on the other side of the world in Sweden, we’re constantly in awe at their passion and advocacy for EBM technology, and their ingenuity in developing game-changing applications in titanium,” commented Karl Lindblom, General Mranager, GE Additive Arcam EBM.
