To guarantee that its customers can produce quality industrial parts with ideal technical and economic feasibility, in addition to its FormUp™ machines, AddUp offers support through all the phases of assessing additive manufacturing, from exploration to investment, through implementing an industrial solution.
Thanks to Michelin’s experience in large-scale production, acquired through tire mold lamelle production, AddUp has unique expertise and can advise its customers with an objective, pragmatic industrial vision that takes into account all of the essential elements to control for qualified industrialization.
AddUp supports its customers throughout the development phases, to help them make their industrial additive manufacturing project a success, from the feasibility study to industrialization and qualification..
AddUp implements direct metal laser melting on an industrial scale. With this technology, low granulometry powder and a small-diameter laser can be used to make parts that combine precision, surface quality, material integrity, and internal stress levels.
Example of the level of precision obtained on small-scale maraging steel parts: +/- 35 µm
With the company 3A, AddUp also has expertise in Electron Beam Melting machines, which can be used to produce parts in a vacuum at high temperatures.
AddUp supports all industrialization projects for additive manufacturing of parts by tailoring its production equipment to meet its customers’ needs.
AddUp relies on its technical platform in Ladoux (Clermont-Ferrand, France), which is home to all of its process parameter development and adjustment expertise.
AddUp’s machine fleet will change over the coming years, to support its customers specific execution needs.
