Arcam Launches Qplus Electron Beam Melting Systems

A new series of electron beam melting systems is said to be more efficient and precise.

Arcam AB has launched Arcam Q10plus and Arcam Q20plus, an enhanced generation of its Arcam Q series electron beam melting (EBM) systems for additive manufacturing. With Qplus, the company is introducing Arcam xQam, an X-ray-based function for high-precision auto-calibration and improved beam control. The systems are also equipped with the EBM Control 5.0, an all-new software platform with more efficient and accurate beam control as well as new melt strategies. The Qplus machines are said to improve productivity as well as surface finish and precision. They are intended for use in the medical implant and aerospace industries.
