Read more
One of the things that is often talked about in our industry is productivity. Many times it is communicated as a deposition rate but this doesn’t include time lost where operators remove the parts, or where builds finish in the middle to the night and the machine is left idle. The fully automated MetalFAB1 allows us to talk about metrics such as OEE and uptime that are commonly used in manufacturing other industries. Find out more about via this videohow Additive Industries monitor this metrics and why we consider ourselves productivity leaders.
The parts you build in AM are only ever going to be as good as the material you use to make them. With the MetalFAB1s integrated powder handling, where parts are automatically depowered after being built, not only do we make a much safer environment for the operator but the powder is stored in an inert environment from the moment its is produced by our powder suppliers through its entire life cycle in the MetalFAB1. In order to do this we had to become experts in powder. Watch the video
Building parts quicker and lower cost mustn’t be at the expense of quality. The large platform of the MetalFAB1 allows you to build not only large parts but also a greater number of small parts, helping to lower costs further. With multiple lasers, all able to at every point on the large platform, controlling such things as the gas flow become critical in achieving the desired quality. Watch the video
In a joint partnership of the engineering teams of Sigma Labs, a leading developer of in-process quality assurance software for the additive manufacturing industry, and Additive Industries, the MetalFAB1 is now qualified as PrintRite3D Ready. This will allow the MetalFAB1 to be equipped with a melt pool monitoring solution. Read more
One of the things people first associate with increasing productivity in Laser Powder Bed Fusion is increasing the number of lasers working at any one time. The full field lasers on the MetalFAB1 have many advantages as all lasers effectively work as one, meaning no visual stitching lines on parts, or overlap regions where the part is scanned twice leaving undesirable material properties. In this episode find out how Additive Industries provide the user the ability to control all these lasers exactly how you want whilst still ensuring quality. Watch the video
As productivity leaders we often get challenged to push the boundaries of parts built in additive manufacturing.

In this Automotive World report, OEMs, suppliers and other leading stakeholders provide insight into how the technology could be used in vehicle production. Suppliers are keen, vehicle manufacturers are cautiously optimistic, and toolmakers sense an opportunity: 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is coming to the automotive industry. One of the quates from this report is from Daan Kersten, Co-Founder/CEO of Additive Industries: “Parts made with our technology fall within much smaller tolerance bandwidths. It also achieves tenfold productivity, which, depending on the part being made, typically results in a cost-per-part reduction of 40% to 50%”. To be able to read this full report, please click here.
Three years ago, Additive Industries started developing the first truly industrial 3D metal printing system, building on the mechatronic and system engineering experience of the Dutch Brainport region. In one year a functional model was realised, and one year later, in 2015, a beta version was presented, which is now being tested by launching customers.

De winnaars worden bekend gemaakt tijdens de Additive World Conference op 15 maart 2017 in Eindhoven. Lees meer [Bron: brainport.nl]
On Thursday, September 29, in cooperation with the Financiele Telegraaf, the Chamber of Commerce has presented (for the 11th time) the rankings with 100 concrete innovations achieved by the Dutch SMEs. Additive Industries became the regional winner of the Top 100 small and medium-sized innovative firms! The Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to stimulate the growth of SMEs. Innovation is therefore one of the main pillars. Innovation allows them to pay back in better business performance: in extra revenue, but also in employment, earnings and even international trade.
