Carpenter Technology has acquired MB CalRAM LLC, which offers powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing (AM) metal printing services.

California-based CalRAM makes parts for the aerospace, defense, power generation, and oil and gas industries. It has a 25,000 ft2 manufacturing facility and can reportedly produce a range of differentiated parts.

‘This strategic acquisition builds upon our existing additive manufacturing capabilities and provides direct entry into the rapidly expanding part production segment of the additive manufacturing value chain,’ said Tony Thene, Carpenter’s president and CEO. ‘The addition of CalRAM […] is a strong complement to Carpenter’s deep technical experience in producing highly engineered metal powders and wire for additive manufacturing applications, including mission-critical applications such as jet-engine fuel nozzles, rocket-thrust chambers, and orthopedic implants.’
