FormUp 350 PBF machine

FormUp 350

Multipurpose laser PBF technology

An open and scalable machine architecture to meet your requirements in terms of productivity and parts quality.

HIGH-END FLEXIBILITY

The FormUp 350 machine gives you access to all manufacturing parameters, so you can define recipes that are perfectly suited to each application (more than 150 production parameters accessible on the machine).

With its wide choice of spreading systems, FormUp 350 adapts to all metal powders: fine, medium or coarse granulometries.

Work with reactive or non-reactive powders, with argon or nitrogen inerting system.

Choose a machine with 1 or 2 lasers, depending on your productivity requirements.

The drawer powder-feeding system ensures that you only deposit powder where it is needed, saving raw material.

AddUp Manager preparation software is compatible with popular 3D print file formats (STL and 3MF) but also with CAD files, to help you streamline your production preparation process.

HIGH QUALITY PARTS

By choosing to work with fine powders, on a FormUp 350 machine equipped with a roller spreading system, you can get parts with unmatched geometric and metallurgical qualities.

REDUCED DOWNTIME

The FormUp 350 machine is designed to minimize the time between the end of one production and the start of the next one:

  • Quick locking and automatic referencing of the manufacturing platform

  • Long-life smoke filtration system (replacement interval greater than 12 months)

  • No disruption of powder supply, either with the container system or the autonomous powder supply module

  • Laser lens protection system (no lens cleaning between each production)

  • Two access doors for faster and easier powder extraction

  • Maintenance-free roller spreading device

  • Fast uploading of manufacturing files

DESIGNED FOR INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION

The FormUp 350 machine is designed to fit into your production workshop, and adapts to all your requirements in terms of:

  • Production monitoring. Real-time monitoring through AddUp Dashboards.

  • Traceability. Automatic marking of parts and platforms with AddUp Manager software, storage of all production data with AddUp Dashboards software.

  • Interoperability. Generation of production file from the 3DEXPERIENCE® software suite, use of production data with any OPC-UA/MQTT-compatible software on the market.

  • Safety. Easy integration into an existing workshop with the AddUp Flexcare protection system.

AND MANY OTHER ADVANTAGES…

Among the other advantages of the FormUp 350 machine:

  • Track the progress of your production in real-time with AddUp NCore, on the machine or remotely.

  • Recycle your powder continuously during production with the optional autonomous powder module.

  • Produce “Right the first time” parts with Distortion Simulation AddOn, a software that can anticipate the deformations of the part during manufacturing, and adapt the geometry of your parts accordingly.
