AddUp’s pre-fabricated, turnkey FlexCare System is a containerized production system for metal additive manufacturing, built according to health, safety and environmental standards for working with metallic powders in the 3D printing process.

The system houses the FormUp350 industrial metal 3D printer, including all inert, ancillary powder charging, evacuation and recycling equipment required to safely operate the 3D printing process. An integrated washing machine cleans plates and parts as they exit the system. The system includes an integrated HVAC system with airlock technology to control the atmosphere and exchange of air, and is designed to protect operators and avoid the risks associated with metal additive manufacturing. 

The system’s modular units can be customized for space constraints and can be adapted to house several additive machines or other postprocessing equipment in a workshop. Module design, according to the company, offers a cost-effective alternative for housing, supporting and operating a metal printing process.

  • Reduce the Time and Costs of Jig and Fixture Manufacture

    When it comes to the manufacture of jigs, fixtures and assembly tools, time-to-market for new products can be reduced, overall costs can be saved and the quality of the resulting components/production can increase with the use of additive fabrication—laser sintering and fused deposition modeling.

  • Laser Sintering And Conformal Cooling Channels

    Moldmakers who are interested in exploring conformal cooling, but are concerned about its complexity and expense need to understand two things: it is neither complex nor expensive.
