Dec. 30, 2017 – Arcam AB, supplier of additive manufacturing (AM) solutions and part of GE Additive, has signed a lease agreement with Castellum for its Electron Beam Melting (EBM) business to move into a refurbished 11,800-square-metre facility in Härryda, Sweden.

Arcam Group provides EBM systems through Arcam EBM in Sweden and powder metals through AP&C in Canada.

According to Arcam EBM, the new Härryda facility, which is almost three times the size of the current site, will offer the ability to expand and set the stage for the accelerated growth of the AM industry. The space will allow for increased machine production capacity and more collaborative set-up within the company; uniting logistics, research and development, services and operations. The facility will be ready for move in the first quarter for 2019, adds Arcam EBM.
