FormUp™ 350

The FormUp™ range of machines for direct metal multi-laser melting, offer reliability and productivity.

Insights into the FormUp 350

  • AddUp machines can produce 24/7, with OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) that meets industrial companies’ toughest expectations.
  • Currently unrivaled surface quality, material integrity and internal stress levels
  • Possibility of manufacturing surfaces with very low angles relative to the unsupported horizontal
  • Michelin’s experience in industrial production and the use of the “PMPM” (Powder, Machine, Part, Method) quality planning process, in which all parameters are fully controlled, guarantee that the parts produced are high-quality and ensure repeatability under the qualification conditions required for all types of certification.

“Our raison d’être is to add more value to customers’ AM production than our competitors can. We start this process by changing the mindset of prospective users with respect to any preconceptions they may have about production methods and then providing holistic counselling along the AM route.”

– Vincent Ferreiro, CEO, AddUp
