AddUp, Clermont-Ferrand, France, and Decayeux STI, a metal processing company located in Nibas, France, demonstrated the potential of metal Additive Manufacturing for the luxury industries on an industrial scale with their ‘La Mallette’ showcase during Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, November 19–22. 

The two companies entered into partnership in 2018 to devise new metal AM solutions tailored to the specific needs of the luxury sector. Together, they are said offer comprehensive solutions to these industries, including part modelling, prototyping, industrialisation and serial production. 

The ‘La Mallette’ showcase at Formnext included ten original objects designed by Raphaëlle Hanley and created specifically to illustrate the possibilities of metal AM in in leather goods and luxury jewellery. The objects featured included  belt buckles, chains, clasps, carabiners, a shoe heel and more.

Manufactured on AddUp’s FormUp machines and finished using processes developed by Decayeux STI, the parts included in the showcase were also accompanied by explanatory sheets, prices and expected lead times for the production of equivalent objects.

David Muller, business development manager for Luxury at AddUp, commented, “All these products, which meet the demanding criteria of luxury in terms of aesthetics, are perfectly reproducible, with a constant level of quality identical to the prototype, regardless of the volume of the series to be manufactured.”
