The FormUp® range of machines for direct metal multi-laser melting, offer reliability and productivity.
Michelin’s experience in industrial production and the use of the “PMPM” (Powder, Machine, Part, Method) quality planning process, in which all parameters are fully controlled, guarantee that the parts produced are high-quality and ensure repeatability under the qualification conditions required for all types of certification.

FormUp® machines are flexible and upgradeable: they are designed so that options can be added as needs and uses change.
Additional machines will be available from 2017.
When multiple machines are integrated into a full production line, certain functions are combined:
FormUp® machines are designed to be compatible with all types of materials:
An analysis of the industrial and medical risks generated by the composition of certain alloys (Ni and Co) and the powder granulometry used (< 100-150 microns), as well as our mass production experience, highlighted the need to deploy solutions which integrate HSE (Health, Safety, Environment) issues from the earliest stages.
AddUp benefits from the experience of Fives and Michelin, which share the same values when it comes to protecting operators’ health and creating a safe working environment.
FormUp® machines integrate HSE from the design phase, to limit operators’ exposure.
In addition to infrastructure consulting for additive manufacturing workshop creation, AddUp offers AddUp Control Systems, specific protective solutions that enable its customers to produce safely.
AddUp FlexCare System™ is a flexible, innovative patented solution of one or more transportable plug & play HSE units, which includes everything you need for production with peace of mind.
The AddUp teams can assess the benefits of using a full FormUp® Line industrial solution, based on the customers’ needs, the sectors in which they operate and the types of parts to be produced, and propose a fully functional, productive industrial architecture.
