About us

Centre for Additive Manufacture – Metal, CAM2 focus on material and process development for powder-based metal additive manufacturing (3D printing).

CAM2 is one of only eight Vinnova​ (Sweden's innovation agency) funded competence centres in Sweden. In the competence centers, universities, research institutes, companies and public actors will conduct research in close cooperation in areas that are important for Sweden's competitiveness. The venture is part of the government's initiative regarding strategic collaborative programs.​

Vision

To bring powder based AM into industrial practice, enabling Swedish industry to employ cost-effective AM for manufacturing complex light-weight components with improved performance and functionality.

Mission

To increase the use of powder based AM for added-value components within a broad range of applications and industries.

Strategy

To combine a set of critical research areas with a number of instruments as e.g. PhD and MSc projects, postdocs, education and mobility on different levels, etc.
The centre gathers industrial know-how in:
  • powder development
  • hardware (LS and EBM)
  • high-end manufacturing by additive manufacturing
  • post-processing
