Arcam’s new EBM system, Arcam Q10, is developed in close collaboration with leading implant manufacturers. The development is partly financed by Vinnova. The system is designed to meet the implant industry’s need for ease-of-use, productivity, accuracy and quality assurance. Arcam Q10 replaces Arcam A1, the current industry standard for Additive Manufacturing of orthopedic implants.

The orthopedic market is one of Arcam’s two main markets. The EBM technology is used for implant production since 2007, and more than 30.000 EBM-manufactured orthopedic devices have been implanted worldwide. The market share of EBM-manufactured implants is growing steadily. Arcam Q10 includes several new features for industrial volume production, including increased productivity, higher resolution, and Arcam LayerQam™, a new camera-based monitoring system for continuous quality assurance.
