Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing’s capabilities now include five large format EOS additive printers among a fleet of 20 additive manufacturing machines
STATESVILLE, N.C.—Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM) added two large platform EOS M400-4 metal additive printers to its operations, raising the total of additive manufacturing machines on its factory floor to 20. The company now offers five large format EOS machines, along with multiple midsize machines, the company said in a release.
The increase in large format printers parallels the recent surge in industry demand for large metal hypersonic parts, heat exchangers, turbomachinery, and monolithic components designed for space, aerospace, and defense applications, according to the release.
“One of the biggest challenges to our industry is in building end-user confidence in the manufacturing supply chain,” said Brad Keselowski, owner and founder of Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing, in the release. “The rapid growth in both volume and size of additively manufactured parts must be answered with a corresponding increase in machine bandwidth, material availability, and finishing capability. Responding to this development is critical.”
In response, KAM balances a comprehensive fleet of 20 large and mid-size additive machines alongside 12 multi-axis CNC machine tools, assembling what the company called “an integrated advanced manufacturing supply chain.”
“The machine installation today speaks to KAM’s commitment to keep pace with the AM (additive manufacturing industry) and our customer needs,” Keselowski added.
