Arcam EBM Spectra L

The Spectra L offers the largest build volume of our Arcam EBM machines, allowing enhanced capacity to produce large, high-integrity parts, faster than ever before. The Spectra L allows for mass production of parts by offering the unique EBM feature to tightly stack parts without compromising on quality.

The key to higher productivity

The Spectra L machine offers increased productivity and reduces cost per part by up to 20%*. Due to an increased beam power to 4.5 kW and enhancements in the beam control, the build speed is increased by up to 30%*, compared to previous Arcam EBM machines.

The Spectra L allows for mass production of parts by offering the unique EBM feature to tightly stack parts without compromising on quality. Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology provides you with design freedom and allows you to build free-floating parts in sintered powder. Any supports are primarily used for heat equalization and are easily removed when the build is finished.

Spectra L's improved melt process results in enhanced surface finish and consistent material properties for thin and bulky geometries. This provides the freedom to design parts without limiting your imagination. In addition, the Spectra L offers the largest build volume of our EBM machines, allowing enhanced capacity to produce high-integrity parts, larger and faster than ever before.

Build Performance Analyzer (BPA)

Our BPA is an analytics software that combines machine behavior, EBM physics and domain knowledge of system into an in-depth analysis to give users a quick and easy understanding of performance of each build job.

  • Analyzes performance of key machine and process sub-systems such as Vacuum Unit, Beam Unit, Powder Distribution Unit and Auxiliary Units (such as chiller)
  • Quickly assesses severity of errors through simple red-yellow-green indicators
  • Diagnoses root-cause for failed/aborted builds
  • Provides specific recommendations for the user to mitigate the diagnosed issues
  • Provides summary or deeper analysis with detailed plot views and statistical summaries
  • Easy and simple tracking of actions taken
  • Generates reports and analyzes historic builds

Achieving qualification

Qualification is an important aspect to scaling additive production. And more rigor comes into play when you are producing parts for regulated industries, such as orthopedics and aerospace. Our additive experts have experience qualifying hardware in highly regulated markets and can help shrink the learning curve to get your product to market faster. You will ultimately qualify the machine, the material and the process. Our approach conforms to industry-wide processes for establishing robust and repeatable production outcomes.

Installation Qualification (IQ)
The purpose of the IQ protocol is to provide documented evidence that the machine is installed according to documented and pre-approved specifications.

Operational Qualification (OQ)
The purpose of OQ is to demonstrate that a system operates according to written pre-approved specifications throughout a specified operating range.

Performance Qualification (PQ)
The purpose of PQ is to demonstrate that the additive process, under anticipated manufacturing conditions, consistently produces product(s) that meet all engineering requirements.
