AddUp inherits the experience of Fives and Michelin

AddUp inherits the industrial experience of the Fives and Michelin groups.
Our experts speak the same language as you, to make your project a success.

Michelin, the experience of metal additive manufacturing in large series

The Michelin group was one of the first companies to deploy additive manufacturing for the production of serial parts. The world leader in tires developed its own laser powder bed fusion technology (PBF) in the early 2010s. Used to produce parts for tire curing molds, this technology allows the company to both reduce production costs and to make significant advances in product performance.

Today, Michelin produces more than one million mold parts per year with this technology. It was also the world’s first company to have fully automated additive manufacturing workshops.
