The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has expanded its capabilities in the aerospace and Additive Manufacturing sector with the purchase of an AddUp Magic 800 Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machine.

This new machine, released by AddUp in early 2023, is the largest five-axis CNC blown powder DED machine in their fleet. It features a 2 kW laser, two exchangeable heads, and a build volume of 1800 x 1000 x 1000 mm.

ISRO is focused on developing components for space applications and enhancing R&D capabilities to better position India as a recognised player in the global space sector. With the addition of this DED machine, they will have the ability to develop critical parts for space exploration.

“Access to Space is a key part of our collaborative roadmap with ISRO and AddUp will provide our full support so that ISRO can realise all benefits of our Directed Energy Deposition technology to develop and industrialise innovative space applications,” shared Julien Marcilly, CEO of AddUp.

AddUp welcomed the ISRO team to its factory in Saint-Laurent les Tours, France, to commission the machine before shipment to India in late August 2023. This visit coincided with the state visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to France, which marked the 25th anniversary of the India-France Strategic Partnership.
