Additive Industries presents competitive entry model MetalFAB1 for process development & prototyping

15 March, 2017

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - On the first day of its Additive World Conference, Additive Industries has presented a new entry-level model of its MetalFAB1 industrial 3D metal printing system. The system is developed specifically for process & application development and prototyping. Its compact footprint and competitive price point help first time users to gain experience with metal additive manufacturing before scaling for series production. The modular architecture, typical for the MetalFAB1 system family, allows for upgrading to a full size MetalFAB1 system later. The technology and build volume (420 x 420 x 400 [mm]) are identical to the larger size systems for series production.
