Metal manufacturing

Swedish Arena for Additive Manufacturing of Metals

The Swedish Arena for Additive Manufacturing of Metals is a network for collaboration with the goal to increase adoption and speed up sustainable industrialization of metal AM.

Sweden was once an early adopter of additive manufacturing and now has class leading AM suppliers. Additive manufacturing has the potential to make Swedish industries competitive and leading through high-value manufacturing that will create growth, uniqueness, jobs, and export opportunities. The Arena gives participating companies and research organisations an opportunity to take part in the effort to make this to be a reality.

The Arena offers

  • An interface and entrance point to metal AM in Sweden
  • Coordinate and support needs for a digitalized and sustainable industrialization of metal AM
  • Networking and knowledge sharing
  • Competence development

The Arena is a joint initiative from Swerim, RISEChalmers University of Technology, Materials and Manufacturing Technology and University West, Engineering Science. Today we are a network of industrial and academic partners.

Industrial offer

The industrial partners have different offers along the AM value chain, e.g. metal powder, printers, services, or use metal AM as end-user for their own products.

The academic group coordinated by Emmy Yu Cao from Chalmers has mapped the education and competence within metal AM available at universities and institutes of the AM-Arena. Read more about the education and competence.
