SUPPLIER SHOWCASE 34 NOVEMBER 2018 Additive Manufacturing AddUp was formed on April 1, 2016, following the decision of two leading indus- trial firms, Fives and Michelin, to create a major player in metal 3D printing. This joint venture's ambition is to bring the benefits of its experience and know-how to customers by developing and marketing industrial machines and production lines on a worldwide scale using metal additive manufacturing technology, commonly known as metal 3D printing. AddUp's offer has integrated LBM (Laser Beam Melt- ing) technology as well as DED (Directed Energy Deposition) technology since its acquisition of BeAM in June 2018. AddUp also offers services, consulting and training to assist its customers in the adoption of the technology. AddUp, with its head office in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and subsidiaries in the United States and Singapore, currently employs more than 220 people.

Phone: 866-248-1-2- FlexCare System The FlexCare is a turnkey metal AM production module built to consider the health, safety and environmental aspects of working with metallic powders. The system includes a fully integrated HVAC, coupled with patented airlock technology, to control the atmosphere even as materials and operators enter and exit. The FlexCare neatly houses the FormUp 350 including the fully inert powder charging, evacuation and recycling equipment. The FlexCare offers a fast, economical alternative for safely supporting and operating an end-to-end metal 3D printing process. FormUp 350 The FormUp 350 is an industrial metal AM machine for production of serial parts and prototypes. The platform is designed to offer an open, flexible and scalable solution based on LBM (Laser Beam Melting) technology. The FormUp features dual 500-W lasers, each with three-axis optics and coverage of the full build area. The versatility of the FormUp system is unique, allowing the user to target printing for high resolution and fine surface quality, high productivity, or a clever balance between the two. This machine provides fast, reliable and accurate production of metal parts directly from CAD data.
