BeAM, Strasbourg, France, will exhibit its Modulo 250 Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machine for metal Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2018, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany, November 13-16, 2018. BeAM will showcase its technologies on a joint booth with AddUp, Clermont-Ferrand, France, which acquired the company in June 2018.

The 5-axis Modulo 250 offers a build volume of 400 x 250 x 300 mm, and employs a 500 W laser alongside BeAM’s proprietary deposition nozzle, multiple powder feeders and controlled atmosphere system for processing reactive materials. Designed for research, process development and the production of small parts, it is currently in use at the University of People’s Friendship (RUDN), Moscow, Russia, and the Laboratory for Advanced Process and Sustainability (LAPRAS), São Carlos, Brazil.

In addition to the Modulo 250, which is the latest offering in its range of DED machines, BeAM will showcase industrial applications of its technology, including a 700 mm diameter exhaust nozzle, aerospace tubes and repair use cases.

AddUp’s complete range of products and services for AM will also be showcased on the joint stand. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about AddUp Think, a training and consulting service; AddUp Start, which offers access to the group’s multi-technology fleet of machines to produce proof-of-concept parts, develop and qualify applications; and the FlexCare System™, an easily-transportable controlled atmosphere solution.
