Additive Industries largest aerospace customer expands installed base to 10 before the year-end

27 August, 2019

Additive Industries North America, Inc. is proud to announce the purchase of 6 MetalFAB1 systems by a prestigious aerospace company located in California. This firm order validates the Additive Industries’ concept of production-based metal powder bed fusion systems for maximum overall equipment efficiency. When the order for six machines arrives at the customer site later this year, it will bring the installed base of MetalFAB1 systems to 10 with more possible in 2020. This customer was able to consolidate approximately 700 kilograms of powder in the month of June with the 4 laser MetalFAB1 systems currently in operation. The application represents an inflection point in metal powder bed fusion part production where candidate parts were typically limited to fist size volumes to meet ROI calculations.

APWORKS and Additive Industries advance to series production of certified parts

13 August, 2019

APWORKS located at the Airbus headquarters close to Munich was Additive Industries’ first customer and has extensively tested the MetalFAB1 Beta system since its installation in March 2016. The partners have jointly decided to now move to the next phase of industrial additive manufacturing: certification and series production. APWORKS, a 100% subsidiary of Premium AEROTEC and part of Airbus, main focus in Taufkirchen is on development and production of complex and advanced applications for metal additive manufacturing in non-regulated industries such as automotive, robotics or tooling, as well as new material and software development. The collaboration on series production of certified applications for the aerospace industry will be done closer to actual production at the new Additive Industries Process & Application Development Center on the aerospace campus in Filton, close to Bristol.
