Freemelt receives further order for Freemelt ONE system

The Swedish company Freemelt recently received an order from a renowned American university. The Freemelt ONE system, which specializes in the 3D printing of metals, will be used there in future for research into refractory metals.

Refractory metals such as tungsten are characterized by high melting points, excellent mechanical properties and resistance to corrosion and wear. These properties are particularly advantageous for industrial processes that are exposed to extreme conditions. The traditional manufacturing process for these metals is complex and costly due to their high melting points. Here, additive manufacturing offers an innovative solution by overcoming geometric limitations and thus opening up new manufacturing possibilities.

Freemelt’s CEO, Daniel Gidlund comments,m”It is rewarding that another prestigious American university chose to build their material research and development on Freemelt’s 3D printers. We have intensified our presence in the American market, ramping up sales and marketing efforts, which we now see the results from. This is another important order for Freemelt, as it contributes to the expansion of our installed base for Freemelt ONE. This is the ninth Freemelt ONE system sold in the U.S. and the twenty-fifth sold globally. Universities and research institutes in the U.S. play a pivotal role in the industrialization of additive manufacturing in the U.S. and are therefore critical to Freemelt for our industrial expansion in North America.”

Universities and research institutions play a central role in the industrialization of 3D printing in the US, making them an important factor in Freemelt’s industrial expansion in North America.

Gidlund continues:m“We continue to see an increased demand for Freemelt’s expertise within additive manufacturing and the value our innovative technology brings to critical applications based on refractory metals. A trend that further strengthens our position in the market.”

The Freemelt ONE system will not only support materials research at the university, but also foster collaboration with regional and national manufacturing industries. This should help to identify new applications for additive manufacturing and increase the competitiveness of the US industry.
