AS9100 / EN9100
AS9100 and EN9100 are identical standards which define the additional requirements (beyond those of ISO9001) which are applicable to suppliers of the Aerospace Industry. AS9100 is applicable to such suppliers in the United States, while EN9100 is applicable to suppliers in the European Nations.
Depending on locations and markets served, aerospace suppliers are required by regulatory authorities to comply with the requirements of AS9100 or EN9100. AddUp’s quality management systems and AS9100/EN9100 certifications make us a credible support partner and supplier to manufacturers which must comply with those requirements.
ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for organizations to identify and control their environmental aspects, establish environmental objectives and targets, and demonstrate continuous improvement in their environmental performance.
AddUp’s Environmental Management System and ISO14001 certification provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that our environmental impact is being measured and improved.
ISO9001 provides the foundation that has been accepted by all industries as a standard framework for an organization’s quality management system. Quality management systems help an organization improve its overall performance and provide a sound basis for sustainable development initiatives.
ISO9001 applies to general industries including automotive and tooling.
Having this certification gives assurance to all of AddUp’s customers, regardless of their market segment, that AddUp has implemented a foundational Quality Management System that meets international standards.
ISO13485 defines the additional requirements (beyond those of ISO9001) which are applicable to suppliers of medical device components. This standard includes specific requirements related to traceability of processes and products as well as requirements for the validation of equipment and production processes.
Medical device manufacturers are required by regulatory authorities to comply with the requirements of ISO13485.
AddUp’s quality management system and ISO13485 certification make us a credible support partner and supplier to manufacturers which must comply with those requirements.
CMMC certification addresses the crucial aspect of cybersecurity within the USA. This certification assures that sensitive data is protected and ensures the integrity of critical information.
With CMMC certification, AddUp can demonstrate to potential buyers that they have implemented appropriate cybersecurity measures to safeguard information related to defense contracts or other controlled unclassified information (CUI). This certification instills confidence in AddUp’s ability to protect buyers’ proprietary designs, ensuring the security and confidentiality of projects.
ITAR registration and certification assures that a company is adhering to strict regulations concerning the export and import of defense-related articles and services. This certification ensures that parts are produced within a secure environment, safeguarding sensitive information and intellectual property.
To support the defense and aerospace sectors in the USA, ITAR compliance and certification is vital for manufacturers.
With ITAR certification, potential buyers in the defense sector know they can trust AddUp to handle sensitive projects, reinforcing confidentiality and security.

Industries We Serve
AddUp’s reliable and repeatable platform coupled with in-process monitoring solutions provide peace of mind for manufacturers across a variety of industries and applications.
AddUp’s 4-laser PBF system reduces fusion times by up to 75%, when compared to single laser systems, providing maximum throughput to meet the demands of the medical device market. Thanks to our roller recoater technology, a smooth surface finish with fine features and lattice resolution is achievable directly as printed. This coupled with the ability to produce parts with little or no support structures reduces the need for post-processing and therefore overall costs for the device manufacturer.
TOOLING, MOLDING & INDUSTRIAL
Our 3D metal printers take tooling molds and dies to the next level. The FormUp range of PBF machines have the ability to utilize a finer particle PSD and roller recoater technology to maximize the benefits of conformal cooling, reducing cycle time and improving part performance. Our DED machines can be used for tooling repair applications by building material atop an existing part to extend the overall life of the part.
AEROSPACE & DEFENSE
As an expert of two different additive technologies, AddUp has the unique ability to optimize aerospace applications using both PBF and DED. Our FormUp range of PBF machines are ideal for heat exchangers with thin walls and fine features and our BeAM range of DED machines are ideal for larger scale propulsion components such as rocket nozzles.
Additive Manufacturing allows manufacturers across industries to produce innovative parts that they couldn’t make through traditional manufacturing. AddUp has expertise across a variety of other industries including automotive, motorsport, energy and luxury.
