With its compact size, BeAM's Modulo 250 is not only designed for the manufacturing of small parts: it is particularly suitable for material research activities. Many laboratories, universities and research centers adopt this Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machine. After the People's Friendship University (Russia) and LAPRAS in Brazil, BeAM announces two new deliveries, one for Carleton University in Canada and the other for Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems R&D in Japan.

At FormNext, AddUp presents the first pieces made of pure copper as part of the “Ambition” project. This collaborative Research and Development project brings together several industrial partners, including SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC (leader), PSA GROUP, VARINOR, LIFCO INDUSTRIE and ESI, as well as research laboratories: PIMM (Arts et Métiers ParisTech), SIMAP (INP Grenoble), LPGP (Université Paris-Sud) and LERMPS (Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard). The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the technico-economic feasibility of additive manufacturing of pure copper and copper alloys with powder bed laser beam melting (LBM) technology. Launched in 2018, the “Ambition” project is planned to last 42 months. It has a budget of 5.6 million euros, financed to the tune of 1.8 million euros by national funds (BPI France) and regional funds (Auvergne Rhône-Alpes and Ile- de-France regions) in the form of a FUI (Single Interministerial Fund).

AddUp continues its strategy of increasing productivity for its FormUp® machine line. At the FormNext show, the manufacturer presents a part made on FormUp® 700, an industrial demonstrator of LBM (laser beam melting) machine equipped with a large platform and multi-laser technology. This first demonstrator was developed for IREPA Laser, a reference technology resource center in France for the implementation of industrial laser manufacturing processes. AddUp and IREPA Laser are partners in a research and development project on high productivity.
