GE Additive announced the opening of its Arcam EBM (electron beam melting) Center of Excellence in Gothenburg, Sweden. The 15,000-square-meter facility, which has the capacity for up to 500 employees, triples the floor space of Arcam EBM’s previous site. Having production, R&D, training facilities and support functions all housed under one roof will allow GE Additive to utilize lean manufacturing to increase production capacity.

Demand for Arcam EBM systems continues to grow as more industrial users shift to serial production. The Arcam EBM Center of Excellence, with an increased manufacturing footprint and focus on R&D, will meet that demand.
