Arcam Q10 represents the 3rd generation EBM technology. This EBM machine is developed specifically for cost-efficient manufacturing and is applicable for industrial production of small to medium-sized components with fine details, such as orthopaedic implants. It is designed to meet the high productivity, high resolution, user friendliness and quality control requirements of the implant industry. The size of the build area is chosen 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.
