AM specialist Arcam says that it has been working with Lima, an Italian provider of orthopaedic parts, for 10 years.

In 2007 Lima decided to use Arcam´s electron beam melting (EBM) technology to address the functional limits of the coatings applied to traditional prosthetic implants. Lima decided to partner with Arcam to further develop the potential of its trabecular titanium (TT) technology.

Lima has today a comprehensive program of orthopedic products manufactured in Arcam EBM systems.
