Arcam EBM Q20plus

– for production of aerospace components

The Arcam EBM Q20plus is specifically designed for cost-efficient production of aerospace components, such as turbine blades, structural airframe components and much more. The build envelope is impressive and allows for building large components and optimal stacking of smaller ones. Like the Arcam EBM Q10plus, the build chamber interior is developed for easy powder handling and fast turn-around times.

The Arcam EBM® process takes place in a vacuum and at elevated temperatures, resulting in stress relieved components with material properties better than cast and comparable to wrought material. Like the Arcam EBM Q10plus, the Arcam EBM Q20plus includes advanced validation technology, including Arcam EBM LayerQam™ for inline part quality verification and the groundbreaking Arcam EBM xQam™ for precision autocalibration.

Up to 15% higher productivity

In addition to enhanced precision and process robustness, test results indicate that the Arcam EBM Q20plus can offer up to 15% higher productivity compared to our previous Q20 machine platform. This is made possible by many important new features including an entirely new software platform and electronics for efficient and accurate beam control.

Arcam EBM Q20plus is based on the Arcam EBM Q10 technology platform, with the same EB gun for higher productivity and improved resolution, but with a larger build envelope (Ø350×380 mm). It also includes Arcam EBM LayerQam™, Arcam’s camera-based monitoring system for inline part quality verification and the groundbreaking Arcam EBM xQam™ technology for high precision autocalibration.

The Arcam EBM Q20plus is also delivered with a powder recovery system (PRS) for efficient powder handling.
