Designed for the needs of industrialists

The Modulo 400 machine is a concentrate of technology adapted to the needs of industrial DED production.

Productivity and quality in a single machine

The Modulo 400 machine is a DED machine equipped with two nozzles of different sizes and power. Opt for the 24Vx nozzle to make the massive sections of your parts, and change during production to the 10Vx nozzle to make parts that require precision.

The 10Vx deposition nozzle can deposit weld beads 0.8 to 1.2 mm wide, with an accuracy of 0.1 mm.

The 24Vx deposition nozzle can deposit weld beads 2 to 2.4 mm wide, with an accuracy of 0.2 mm.

Nozzle change takes a few seconds, without interrupting production.

Working with reactive powders

The Modulo 400 machine is equipped with an enclosure inerting device, which allows working with reactive powders. This feature makes it one of the few machines on the market capable of producing titanium or aluminum parts.

The best of AddUp’s DED technology

Many devices available as standard or optional on the Modulo 400 make this machine a concentrate of technology:

  • Vibration powder dispenser for stability and reliability in the powder supply of the deposition nozzle
  • Process control systems allowing continuous observation of the melt pool and early detection of possible drifts during production. The integration of a pyrometer allows for closed-loop control of the melting temperature.
  • A nozzle-part distance control device, which maintains an optimal and constant distance between the nozzle and the part, thus ensuring the geometric quality of the part.
  • An automatic deposition nozzle change system. This system incorporates a probe, which allows significant productivity gains, and makes adaptive repair applications possible.

A balance between compactness and volume of work

The Modulo 400 has a working volume of 650 x 400 x 400 mm, allowing it to handle a wide variety of applications.

Despite this large volume, the machine has a small footprint in order to remain transportable. It can be easily inserted into a marine container, making it the ideal tool for manufacturers who need to produce or repair parts as close as possible to their place of use.
