Metal 3D Printing - Directed Energy Deposition

Our range of DED machines for industry and R&D center

Why choose DED technology?

Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technology is a process of bringing metal powder into a melt pool created by a laser. Parts are created by an overlay of weld beads.

DED technology is suitable for the manufacture of large parts. It also allows other types of applications:

  • Repair of worn or deteriorated parts
  • Addition of features (modifying the geometry of an existing part)
  • Metal coating on existing parts (modification of part properties)
  • Creation of new materials from multiple metals

Why choose AddUp’s DED machines?

AddUp offers two ranges of DED machines.

The Modulo range refers to compact and integrated machines. The Modulo 400 is designed for industrial production and equipped with numerous production monitoring systems.

The Magic range refers to large-format machines. Suitable for the manufacture or repair of large parts, the Magic 800 is equipped as standard with two deposition nozzles: a nozzle equipped with a 10 kW laser, for areas of parts that require precision, and a nozzle equipped with a 24 kW laser for areas of parts that can be produced with high productivity.


The Modulo 400 is a revolution in DED machines. It completely integrates all necessary peripherals into the machine cabinet. This makes it easy to fit into a shipping container or a traditional truck and can be transported and used in remote locations.
