AddUp, specialized in the design, production and commercialization of metal 3D printing machines and production lines, has recently announced the acquisition of BeAM.
BeAM is specialized in the Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technology, a 3D printing process dedicated to the production of large parts and the repair market. Remember the Modulo 400 machine unveiled at Formnext last year. The 3D printing system integrates a 2kW fiber laser, fully controlled atmosphere system, multiple deposition heads, touch trigger probe, and even a light duty milling spindle for dry machining.”
If this acquisition enables AddUp to expand its different technologies, it also enables the company to increase its portfolio of clients in a wide range of sectors such as aeronautics, defense and energy.
BeAM’s DED technology complements the laser beam melting (LBM) technology mastered by AddUp and covers specific market segments, such as large, highly complex parts, the component repair market and feature addition.
In their support to their clients, both companies focus on industrial robustness, HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) and certification.
Even though the exact terms of this acquisition have not been disclosed, we can’t wait to see the first innovations that will arouse from this acquisition.
