Metal Additive Manufacturing is maturing rapidly to become a regular production technology. When applications shift from single parts being prototyped to small and larger series production, process and equipment requirements change from manual flexibility to automated predictability and integrated reproducibility. With its growing installed base in the aerospace, automotive and high-tech industries, Additive Industries has proven its added value in the domain of industrial 3D printing.
Additive Industries has stepped up the game and focusses on traditional manufacturing metrics like reproducibility and productivity in order to beat competing conventional technologies like investment casting and machining on their own turf.
Additive Industries offers the system MetalFAB1 for metal additive manufacturing of high quality functional parts. MetalFAB1 is a modular end-to-end powder bed fusion system. It is configurable from a two module version to eleven modules: from a process and application development printer to a fully automated and integrated 3D metal printing production system. It has a large 420mm X 420mm X 400mm build volume and a patented 4 full field 500 watt lasers design working simultaneously. There is no need for stitching. The MetalFAB1 enables metal additive manufacturing with high productivity and high quality.
The metal additive manufacturing system is seamlessly integrated with an information platform, Additive World Platform, to meet the needs of highly regulated and demanding industrial markets. Additive Industries redefines the business case for metal additive manufacturing applications in aerospace, automotive, medical technology and high-tech equipment. Interesting applications are heat exchangers, manifolds, machine parts, 3D printed hip implants and knees. Additive Industries’ services help customers to develop these applications and also support to ensure the highest possible system uptime.
