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. A membership in 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

  • A strong network in additive manufacturing of metals.
  • A platform to monitor and contribute to the development of technology and knowledge.
  • Easy access to test and demo platforms in additive manufacturing of metals.
  • Support in the industrialisation of additive manufacturing of metals.

The Arena highlights focus areas as

  • Quality considerations in additive manufacturing.
  • From prototyping to industrial production.
  • Correlation between raw material and final properties.
  • Qualification of new alloys and alloy development.
  • Remanufacturing applications.
