The Arcam EBM A2X machine is ideal for material studies because it operates in a vacuum which provides a clean and controlled environment and minimizes the risk of contamination. This machine uses electrons as energy carriers, provides deep energy penetration and low reflection in the powder. For academia and research institutes it is delivered with development mode option. This makes it possible to control more machine and process.

The Arcam EBM A2X machine is appreciated for material studies because it operates in a vacuum which provides a clean & controlled environment & minimizes the risk of contamination. Using electrons as energy carriers, provides deep energy penetration & low reflection in the powder.

Arcam EBM has a long experience of material development & has today tested & build with over 40 materials, many of them together with customers. You can benefit from this experience through our training & consultancy services.


Process temperatures up to 1100° C

The build chamber of the Arcam A2X is specifically designed to withstand extremely high process temperatures, up to 1100° C. This makes it particularly useful for manufacturing components in TiAl and Inconel 718. In addition to production, the Arcam A2X is very well suited for research and process development for new materials. Arcam has an open material strategy that can actively support customers working with their process development. The Arcam A2X is ideal for this purpose.

Since the Arcam A2X system is designed to process titanium alloys as well as materials that require elevated process temperatures, such as titanium aluminide and Inconel, it is well suited for both production and materials R&D. This EBM® platform offers a build envelope of 200x200x380 mm.

Superior material properties

The Arcam A2X system can deliver a beam power of up to 3000 W and maintain a scan speed that allows melting at multiple points simultaneously. The vacuum system is designed to maintain a vacuum level of 1×10-5 mBar or better throughout the entire build cycle. This, combined with elevated temperatures, eliminates residual stress and ensures superior material properties.
