Arcam: Arcam continues to invest in capacity at AP&C, builds new powder manufacturing plant

Arcam AB, listed on NASDAQ Stockholm and a leading supplier of
Additive Manufacturing ("AM") equipment, announces that its powder
manufacturing subsidiary AP&C in Montreal, Canada, continues to add
significant capacity by building a new powder manufacturing plant.

The new facility will provide manufacturing redundancy, short term
capacity increase and long term expansion capability. The new
capacity increase follows on significant growth in 2015 and 2016 and
a surge in demand for AP&C's high quality titanium powders for
additive manufacturing. AP&C's Plasma technology converts efficiently
raw material to powder with excellent key properties such as
flowability, density, chemistry and traceability. With the present
capacity and planned build-out AP&C will reach an atomizing capacity
of at least 750 tons per year.

"The need for high end titanium powder is driven by the fast growth
and adoption of Additive Manufacturing. Arcam is determined to serve
the industry through cost efficient solutions thus converting
traditional manufacturing into Additive Manufacturing.

A requisite is to offer highest quality powder for production at
competitive cost",

says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.
"With this investment we are committing to supply our present and
future customers with superior quality materials to meet the high
manufacturing standards of the biomedical and aerospace industries.
With the powder plant and atomizing technology advancements, AP&C
will add significant capacity in 2017 and onwards",

says Alain Dupont, President of AP&C.
