German AM specialist Arcam AB is expanding its presence in the US through a new facility for sales and service in Woburn, Massachusetts, just outside Boston. Arcam Cad to Metal Inc will be headed by recently appointed president Saeed Pirooz.

The new 5500 ft2 facility in Woburn will provide sales, support, spare parts and consumables and house an application and training center to serve clients in North America.

Arcam has been present in the US since 2003 and Arcam Cad to Metal Inc was founded in 2005. The new office in Woburn will cover the needs of Arcam’s rapidly growing electron beam melting (EBM) business in North America, the company says.   EBM technology is seeing increased adoption by clients moving to large scale manufacturing and significant clients in the aerospace industry include Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, CalRam and in the medical industry, Medical Modeling.

‘We are enthusiastic about this important step in strengthening our presence in the US and we welcome Saeed as part of our global EBM team,’ said Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.
