Fives Michelin Additive Solutions introduces new systems under AddUp brand

Fives Michelin Additive Solutions, a joint venture launched by Fives and Michelin in April 2016, has introduced a range of metal Additive Manufacturing solutions under its new AddUp brand. The company can now supply a complete industrial based system built around its new FormUp™ 350 Additive Manufacturing machine, as well as offering support and advice on part production.

“AddUp stands out because we provide personalised support to industrial businesses in order to find the optimum technical and economic solution. Furthermore, we pay particular and unprecedented attention to operator safety and respect for the environment during the industrial use of powders and metal Additive Manufacturing machines,” stated Bruno Bernard, CEO of Fives Michelin Additive Solutions.

addup-partsThe FormUp™ 350 machine is said to be a flexible and modular industrial Additive Manufacturing machine and can be used for mass production of parts and prototypes. The system has a build area of 350 x 350 x 350 mm and utilises either single or dual 500W Yb fibre lasers. It is claimed to have unrivalled powder tolerance as well as being designed to limit inter-batch contamination and allowing quick changes between powders.
