ADDITIVE INDUSTRIES, NEXT GENERATION INDUSTRIAL 3D METAL PRINTING SYSTEMS 

Additive Industries will bring industrial additive manufacturing/3D printing for selected high tech markets (aerospace, defence, medical, high tech, automotive) from lab to fab. Additive Industries is an OEM of dedicated industrial grade additive manufacturing equipment & -systems for direct printing of functional parts.

  • Additive Industries launches at RAPID 2017 its 4 laser version of the MetalFAB1. This industrial metal additive manufacturing system is the first large (16.5x16.5x15.7 [in]) system with 4 lasers, (500 [W] each, designed to reach the complete build plate. This allows for full flexibility in developing the most optimal and seamless build strategies without any zones and therefore without stitching or division lines. The modular architecture of the MetalFAB1 allows users to start with 1 or 2 lasers and upgrade later when the productivity needs to be increased for growing demand. Besides the launch of its 4 laser system for high volume production, Additive Industries presents its smaller MetalFAB1 Process & Application Development tool for new users or process qualification and material development purposes. Although the system footprint is smaller, the maximum build size stays large (16.5x16.5x15.7 [in]).

  • The MetalFAB1 Process & Application Development Tool is an entry model for process development & 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. 

    The MetalFAB1 Process & Application Development Tool is Additive Industries' latest addition to the MetalFAB1 range of machines. The MetalFAB1 uses powder bed fusion with up to four lasers. In addition to the core 3D print process, heat treatment, automated build plate handling and can be integrated into one industrial grade production system. In industrial applications, reproducibility of the core 3D printing process is assured by a solid machine design in combination with a smart calibration strategy. Predictability is achieved by combining simulation and in-process quality controls with the core additive manufacturing process.

    MetalFAB1 was developed by a team of highly experienced engineers with a background in 3D printing complemented with high-tech equipment developers of semiconductor, electron microscopy and medical scanning systems. Open innovation has led to a new and distinctive system architecture based on well-proven concepts and efficient application of functional building blocks from robotics, lithography and other opto-mechatronical systems.
