Freemelt has received an order at a value of approximately SEK 3,5 million for a Freemelt ONE system, including options, from the Polytechnic University of Turin in Italy. The system will be used for new materials development.
“The research activities of the Interdepartmental Center for Integrated Additive Manufacturing of Politecnico di Torino, covers the full process chain needed for producing additively manufactured parts: the design for additive manufacturing, the development of new materials with relevant background on the gamma titanium aluminides production by EBM as well as big experience in the simulation of AM processes and the definition of new and innovative thermal treatments and component finishing processes. Now, we are very proud to announce the acquisition of a Freemelt ONE that we are sure will contribute to further improve our capabilities.”, said Sara Biamino, Professor in Material Science and Technology at the Polytechnic University of Turin.
The Polytechnic University of Turin is a leading university in material science with previous 3d-printing development of material processes that have contributed to the implementation of successful industrial production. The Freemelt ONE order includes the new ProHeat technology from Freemelt and the Polytechnic University of Turin will perform advanced testing and develop methods around the use of ProHeat by assignment from Freemelt.
“This is an important order for us and a confirmation that customers with great knowledge and ambition in materials development value our product. We are also excited about the ProHeat evaluation that will be performed as this technology provides great possibilities for the future of 3D printing processing. Furthermore, this is our first order in Italy establishing Freemelt as a supplier of advanced 3D printing technology in yet another country in Europe” said Ulric Ljungblad, CEO, and co-founder of Freemelt.
