Open materials strategy defined as key AM trend in a new report
The Additive Manufacturing Landscape 2020 is the title of a new interesting market report from AMFG in London. The report identifies “The move towards an open materials model” as a key trend in additive manufacturing, concluding that increasingly more companies are expected to adopt an open materials strategy in the next couple of years, spurring even more dynamic material development for 3D printing.
We at Freemelt are pleased to see that others share our vision of increased openness and collaboration within the AM community. Many more AM materials must be developed to make AM reach its full potential. Our Freemelt ONE system with its open source concept is an excellent tool for this purpose.

Freemelt contributes to groundbreaking research project – Postdoc positions available in Stockholm/Hamburg!
Freemelt is a proud partner and supplier to the R&D project Real-time measurements of additive manufacturing with electron-beam melting that recently received funding from the Swedish Research Council through the Röntgen-Ångström Cluster. The project aims to employ high-speed synchrotron X-ray imaging to monitor the Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (E-PBF) process in situ and in real time. This will be truly groundbreaking research!
Röntgen-Ångström is a German-Swedish research collaboration in structural biology and materials science. The project is led by Greta Lindwall, Assistant Professor at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Other project partners are Friedrich-Alexander-Universitet Erlangen Nürnberg, Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht and DESY.
Are you interested to contribute? Two post-doc positions are presently available in Stockholm/Hamburg. Application deadline is June 3rd.
Freemelt support cloud launched
Freemelt ONE now comes fully prepared for remote installation and remote software upgrades equipped with a connection to a brand new Freemelt Support Cloud!
We can now perform advanced remote diagnostics and remote upgrade of all software including firmware and PLC software on customer Freemelt ONE systems.
Furthermore, we can also offer new customers a complete package of remote installation and remote training. All you need to do is unpack the system and plug it into the wall. Getting started with a metal 3D-printer has never been easier!
EBAM 2020 postponed
Freemelt was going to exhibit at EBAM 2020, the 3rd International Conference on Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing, in Erlangen, Germany, 25-27 March. Due to the corona virus situation, the conference has been postponed until 5-7 October 2020.
We will be there in October, looking forward to presenting Freemelt at the exhibition. Come and see us there!
First publication of results from a Freemelt ONE system
We are proud to see the first ever publication of results developed in a Freemelt ONE system:
Periodic Open Cellular Raney‐Copper Catalysts Fabricated via Selective Electron Beam Melting.
This study demonstrates catalyst fabrication with nano-porosity, a very interesting application for our E-PBF technology. Great work by our customer in Erlangen!

Adding value to:
Onboarding process for universities
Research providers are important for us. You are the best ambassadors for our technology! We listen to your needs and help you reach your research goals. That is the best way for us to show the potential in our technology.Our onboarding process
Onboarding process for commercial R&D
Many products have improvement potential if made in new materials. Freemelt ONE is the starting point for product material upgrades. Our technology enables fast iterations to establish the important fundamentals in your product development cycle.Our onboarding process
If we combine our efforts we can move faster than if we work alone. Our open source platform lets you adapt and evolve the code, and share it within the community, to accelerate the development of tomorrow’s materials.
