Arcam q10plus ebm machine
Orthopedic Implants, Aerospace & More
The Arcam EBM Q10plus is particularly ideal for the production of high volume, press fit implants with advanced trabecular structures as derived from CT scans of individual patients.
The machine includes groundbreaking Arcam EBM xQam™ technology for high precision autocalibration, a powerful software platform and electronics for efficient and accurate beam control.
The Arcam EBM Q10plus has the latest generation EB gun which allows for both higher productivity and improved resolution. It also includes Arcam EBM LayerQam™, our camera-based monitoring system for inline part quality verification. The Arcam EBM Q10plus is delivered with a powder recovery system for efficient powder handling.
Benefits of EBM
Stacking & Optimal Positioning
EBM has the ability to stack multiple layers of parts allowing for maximum build capacity within the build space.
High-Power electron Beam
The high-power electron beam gun has the ability to melt layers more efficiently, as well as penetrate deeper into the layers of sintered powder.
The EBM process maintains an elevated surface temperature allowing for parts to be stress-relieved directly after melting. This results in low residual stresses final components.
Rapid Scan Speed
The electron beam can move upwards of 8,000 meters per second allowing for the creation of multiple melt pools and maintaining an elevated surface temperature throughout the build platform.
Vacuum Safe Environment
The EBM melting process happens inside a high vacuum providing a clean and regulated environment. The vacuum provides thermal insulation that contributes to high energy efficiency.
Reduced support Structures
EBM technology allows for easily removed support structures that do not require wire EDM or secondary removal techniques. This increases productivity in post-processing.
For Orthopedic Implant Manufacturing
The Arcam EBM Q10plus is designed specifically for the cost-efficient production of orthopedic implants. The size of the build area is designed to allow for optimal stacking of the most common implant types, and the build chamber interior is developed for easy powder handling and fast turn-around times.
