Zeda, Inc., Fremont, California, USA, has announced delivery of its first FormUp 350 Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machine from AddUp Inc, Cincinnati, Ohio, the North American subsidiary of France’s AddUp SAS. This machine is the first of eight FormUp 350 machines, ordered to support the growth of Zeda’s newly expanded ISO AS9100 certified manufacturing facility located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This first FormUp 350 will be used to additively manufacture metal parts using Inconel 718 and will be qualified to support critical aerospace and defence part manufacturing. Zeda has identified unique capabilities made possible with the machine which may aid in broadening the application of Additive Manufacturing technology and how it can be utilised across multiple industries including those in regulated spaces such as aerospace and defence industries.

“We are pleased to be adding AddUp’s tools to our portfolio of advanced manufacturing technologies,” said Greg Morris, CTO, Zeda. “AddUp has demonstrated a set of capabilities that enable us to address unique design and application challenges faced by our growing base of aerospace, space, and defence customers.”

Rush LaSelle, CEO, AddUp, added, “The success that Greg Morris achieved in pioneering the use of Additive Manufacturing in regulated industries combined with the novel approaches being introduced by the extended Zeda team represent a critical service for our customers. We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to collaborate with such a veteran team in delivering high-value metal components to industry using our factory-proven solutions.”

Ohio is expected to represent a high-growth manufacturing environment for AM, with the Biden Administration announcing the AM Forward programme in Cincinnati in 2022. Zeda’s advanced manufacturing facility enables the expansion of production capacity with thirty additional AM machines in the near-term and factory space to implement over 100 tools as the business grows in the mid-term.
