Arcam Q20plus 3D Printer

EBM Industrial 3D Printer


The Arcam EBM® process takes place in vaccum and at elevated temperatures, resulting in stress-relieved components with material properties better than cast and comparable to wrought material. Like the Arcam Q10plus, the Arcam Q20plus includes advanced validation technology, including Arcam LayerQam for inline part quality verification and the ground-breaking Arcam xQam for auto calibration.

Higher Productivity

In addition to enhanced precision and process robustness, Arcam Q20plus offers high productivity. This is made possible by many important new features, including ground-breaking Arcam xQam technology for high precision auto calibration, a powerful new software platform and electronics for efficient and accurate beam control.

Cost reduction

Finding ways to reduce weight is key in the aerospace industry. So is cost reduction. Of particular interest is the so-called Buy-to-Fly ratio — the weight ratio between the raw material used for a component and the weight of the component itself. Ratios as high as 15-20 for flying components are common, adding a lot of cost to the component for material and machining. The Arcam EBM® process opens up exciting opportunities to produce lightweight components with a Buy-to-Fly ratio very close to 1.

Shorter lead times

Aerospace companies often have to rely on a few dominant suppliers for traditional casting of components, and the lead-time for design iterations can be many months. Since Arcam EBM® technology is a tool-less production technology, it allows design modifications to be made with minimal lead-time and cost.

New design possibilities

The freedom in design provided by Arcam EBM® technology enables designers to create completely new and innovative product designs. Components can be optimized in terms of weight reduction or functional aspects such as improved cooling, heating or filtering characteristics.

The main driver in 3D printing for vehicles is not printing the entire vehicle, but a move to 3D printing tooling and end-use parts. According to SmarTech, prototyping has only penetrated automotive prototyping by 15% to 20%. Ford, for example, has been 3D printing prototypes for over 20 years to decrease design time.
