We have an Arcam electron beam melting (EBM) machine that is being installed right now. Although the process uses an electron beam rather than a laser to melt the metal powder, it directly produces fully dense metal parts just like LENS. Arcam offers steel powder right now, and we saw one of the well-known rook pieces (with the internal spiral staircase and rope) built from a titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V I believe) when we visited them in Sweden a month ago. Arcam hasn't officially released the titanium alloy yet, but that rook suggests that they are probably pretty close. Give me a call (919 - 515 - 1549) or send me e-mail (email@example.com) if you'd like to know more about the process.
