BEAMIT to purchase 15 more machines from SLM Solutions

BEAMIT, Italy’s largest metal additive manufacturing service bureau, has come a long way since 3dpbm staff last visited the company’s AM facilities in 2013. The Fornovo-based firm has grown into one of the largest metal AM factories in Europe and – by extension – worldwide. However, its expansion is not slowing down. In fact it is accelerating with an agreement to purchase 15 Selective Laser Melting machines from SLM Solutions within the next three years. The commitment emphasizes SLM Solutions as the preferred supplier for BEAMIT’s machines.

“Through the replacement of single laser products with SLM Solutions` multi-laser technology we are able to increase our productivity and provide competitive pricing to our customers, says Mauro Antolotti, Chairman and Founder of BEAMIT. He further emphasizes: “By partnering with SLM Solutions, we can meet our customer`s requirements to build high-quality parts at increased productivity and expand our facilities.” The commitment is in line with the expansion of BEAMIT´s plant, which is then more than twice the size of the previous space.

BEAMIT today is a trusted supplier of advanced metal AM-components to demanding industries like aerospace, automotive, energy and racing – and holds a number of relevant quality certifications, including AS 9100 for aerospace and NADCAP approval. In July 2019, an industrial partnership with SANDVIK was announced which will integrate, complement and expand a value chain of AM applications.

As per the letter of the intent signed, the order includes various models of systems based on SLM® technology, including SLM®280, SLM®500 and SLM®800. BEAMIT pointed out that the company values the systems’ multi-laser capabilities for higher productivity, in order to replace current single laser systems, as well as SLM Solutions’ closed-loop powder handling for the reliable, efficient and safe production of dense parts.

“We are very pleased to deepen our cooperation with BEAMIT and to be a long-term partner in its additive growth,” said Meddah Hadjar, CEO of SLM Solutions. “It shows the trust and the confidence in our machines and in our multi-laser technology. We are looking forward to a successful future and collaboration not only on these products but also for future NextGen products and technology developments.”

BEAMIT and SLM Solutions share a long-term partnership, jointly working on high-speed, top-quality parameters targeting the specific needs of the customers.
