Zeda, Inc. (previously PrinterPrezz / Vertex Manufacturing), a global leader in advanced 3D manufacturing and nanotech solutions for the medical, space, aerospace, and defense industries announces the addition of its first AddUp FormUp 350 Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) machine. This machine is the first placement of eight (8) FormUp 350 systems to support the growth of Zeda’s newly expanded manufacturing facility located in Cincinnati, OH.

AddUp’s FormUp 350 was designed with the industrial user in mind to scale additive manufacturing. Our customers, including that of one of our parent companies Michelin, require a reliable and repeatable solution while meeting the needs of the most stringent quality requirements such as the medical and aerospace markets. In order to support our customers more easily adopt AddUp’s technology we have partnered with ZEDA, a full solution provider with unmatched pedigree in the additive space. With this partnership, we provide further access to the aerospace and medical markets with industry best surface finish and feature resolution thanks to our roller technology with best in class part cost with our larger build platform and 4-lasers.

This first FormUp 350 was deployed in March 2023 to print metal parts using Inconel 718 and will be qualified to support critical aerospace and defense part manufacturing. With fully certified ISO AS9100 facilities, Zeda is providing new levels of insight, understanding, and application of 3D printing technologies. Zeda has identified unique capabilities made possible with AddUp’s FormUp 350 which aid in broadening the application of 3D printing technology and how it can be utilized across multiple industries including those in regulated spaces such as aerospace and defense industries.

Greg Morris, CTO of Zeda and Rush LaSelle, CEO of AddUp welcome the placement of the first FormUp350 system at Zeda’s new 75,000 square foot facility in Cincinnati, OH.
