GE Additive is experiencing a growing demand for its Arcam Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. So, to meet this demand, GE Additive opened a Centre of Excellence in Gothenburg, Sweden. The centre has a capacity for up to 500 employees, the new 15,000 square meter facility, triples the floor space of Arcam EBM’s previous site in Mölndal.

The centre will have production, R&D, training facilities and support functions all housed under one roof. It will allow GE Additive to put lean manufacturing at the heart of its operations to increase production capacity.

GE Additive believes that the industria users are now making the shift to serial production through additive manufacturing methods and thus the demand for Arcam EBM technology is growing. The new Arcam EBM Centre of Excellence with increased production capabilities and a focus on R&D will be able to meet the growing demand. This also shows GE Additive’s continued investment in manufacturing facilities in US & Europe.

Lindblom added, “Throughout, we have benefitted immensely from GE’s experience and know-how in applying Lean manufacturing. Customers joining our annual user group meeting next month will be the first to see our Centre of Excellence – which we hope will become a focal point for the entire additive industry.”
