LAI International and AddUp formed a partnership to advance industrial production of Metal AM components and materials, including Inconel, aluminum and titanium in the USA.

The partnership will employ AddUp’s FormUp-350, Dual 500W Laser-Powder-Bed-Fusion machine as the platform for the program, the first of its kind to be delivered in the USA. The FormUp- 350 will be installed at LAI International’s Tempe, Arizona facility, ready for full-rate, qualified production in January 2018. AddUp’s FormUp-350 will complement LAI’s existing Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology, providing a significant expansion of the capabilities and materials in LAI’s Metal AM portfolio.

Additionally, AddUp and LAI International are exploring co-locating an advanced additive customer technology center in Tempe, Arizona to provide expert local additive services and machine demonstrations for Metal AM customers and research institutions in the Southwestern United States.
