Arcam has received its largest single order ever for their proprietary EBM systems from Avio Aero, a GE Aviation subsidiary.
The Italy-based company is working on the design, production and maintenance of components and systems for the civil and military aeronautics sector and will use Arcam’s systems to start series production of TiAl alloy turbine blades. Avio Aero has also developed metal powders specifically for additive manufacturing processes, including Electron Beam Melting (EBM).
Giacomo Vessia, Plant Leader at Avio Aero on the recent order: “These machines will be vital to move to series production of turbine blades. Arcam is the leading supplier of titanium alloy additive manufacturing systems and we again turned to them with confidence, having used their products for years.”
“This is the largest single order ever for Arcam EBM systems,” stated Arcam CEO Magnus René. “The deal confirms the potential of the Arcam EBM technology as a volume production system for the aerospace industry. We truly look forward to supporting Avio Aero in their turbine blade manufacturing.”
