Last week we attended the RAPID+TCT event in Fort Worth, Texas. We were very excited to present our findings on putting Machine Learning to productive uses in additive (slides are here, video coming shortly). During our stay there, we got to see a host of new 3D printers being announced, as well as new, intriguing AM techniques. The list of worthy news would be way too long, so here’s a couple pieces that stood out.
GE Additive unveils Arcam EBM Spectra H machine at RAPID + TCT
GE Additive today unveiled the Arcam EBM Spectra H, a new metal additive manufacturing system designed to handle high heat and crack prone materials. The Arcam EBM Spectra H complements the company’s existing electron beam melting systems.

MELD Manufacturing Corporation Awarded RAPID + TCT Innovation Award For Patented MELD Technology
On Thursday, April 26, 2018, MELD Manufacturing Corporation was selected from the more than 300 exhibitors at RAPID + TCT 2018 as the recipient of the Innovation Award. MELD is a unique process for additive manufacturing that avoids melting the metal, thereby eliminating the weaknesses and other issues associated with melt-based processes. MELD’s open-atmosphere operation and scalable equipment also make it more efficient and capable of making larger parts than similar processes. In addition to additive manufacturing, MELD can be used to repair, coat, and join a wide range of materials, including some metals that cannot be welded with traditional processes.
