Arcam and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have signed a cooperation agreement under which the parties will facilitate the introduction of Arcam's EBM technology to U.S. industry through a manufacturing demonstration facility (MDF).
ORNL purchased its first Arcam EBM system in 2009. Since that time ORNL and Arcam have worked together to create opportunities for U.S .industry to adopt Arcam's EBM technology to meet emerging advanced manufacturing challenges. Under a newly installed (Cooperative Research and Development Agreement) Arcam and ORNL will deepen their collaboration to advance Arcam's technology to bring even greater advanced manufacturing benefit to U.S. industries. As part of this agreement Arcam intends to locate an application development center at ORNL to support U.S. industry application development.Arcam
