Additive Industries' advantages

Group 452@2x

Reliable completion with four-laser full-field coverage

Our printers’ full build plate coverage with four lasers ensures every project reaches completion, every time. The laser coverage enables customers to either use zonal or full-field approaches to laser assignment, meaning large parts can be built without stitching zones and small parts can be split effectively across a build plate.

Full automation – never interrupt your print cycle

Additive Industries’ printers feature full automation that extends to post-printing processes. Build plates are exchanged and levelled automatically, preparing for subsequent jobs, thus facilitating an uninterrupted, continuous print cycle. This substantially raises productivity and efficiency, while ensuring consistent quality.

Automated laser calibration – a leap in precision and efficiency

As the only system manufacturer to fully automate tests for all four lasers, we ensure perfect calibration of focus, stability, beam position, power, spot size, beam shape and laser-to-laser position. Our user-operated calibration guarantees unparalleled quality in printed parts, and significant time savings compared to manual methods used by competitors.
Group 20@2x

Build beyond boundaries

Tailored for the most ambitious work, our 
printers accommodate the complexity and size requirements of components essential to advanced applications such as rockets and satellites.
