Process Validation Tools

Arcam EBM LayerQam and Arcam EBM xQam

When it comes to process validation technology for additive manufacturing in production, Arcam is leading the way. In fact, the Arcam EBM® technology itself opens unique opportunities for monitoring and validating the process that would otherwise not be possible.

Arcam EBM LayerQam™ for defect detection

Arcam LayerQam is a high resolution camera system for powerful defect detection. It tracks porosity layer-by-layer and reports defects in the entire build and individual components.

Arcam EBM xQam™ – Autocalibration

Frequent high precision calibration is crucial for a robust and predictable operation. With Arcam xQam, a unique, built-in X-ray detection system, you can rely on quick, high precision autocalibration and system diagnostics that is completely operator independent.

Arcam EBM xQam – Future Applications

Arcam xQam technology works very much like a scanning electron microscope (SEM), which is widely used as a powerful material character­ization tool. This new functionality will position Arcam xQam for future application possibilities for more robust monitoring and validating processes.
