Armadillo Additive selected a four-laser FormUp 350 AM machine with a build volume of 350 x 350 x 350 mm. “The FormUp 350 is a dream come true for us,” shared Noah Smith, Armadillo Additive’s Director of Operations. “It’s on the cutting edge from both a software and hardware perspective. The large build volume and quad laser system allow us to get production jobs done faster than the competition, while the roller recoater lets us push the design envelope to the next level.”
