    2009

    Arcam released the A1, specifically developed for volume production of orthopedic implants. The same year Arcam also released the A2X, offering a build chamber more suitable for processing high temperature materials and a slightly larger build envelope.

  6. Product launch A2XX
    2012

    2012

    Arcam released the A2XX, offering the largest build envelope so far on the EBM platform.

  7. Product launch Q10 & Q20
