Additive Industries, an industrial metal 3D printing manufacturer, has installed its MetalFABG2 3D metal printer at ADDDAM, a volume-flexible metal processing and production solutions supplier. The printer has been installed at ADDDAM’s facility in Brixen, making it Additive Industries’ first customer in Italy. 

ADDDAM has acquired the MetalFABG2 printer to access the die-casting industry. With this purchase, the company aims to become a leading producer of complex aluminum parts for the automotive and machine engineering sectors. The automotive industry is changing rapidly due to the shift to electric vehicles and changes in customer behavior. ADDDAM offers prototyping and initial testing, with the ability to transition to high-pressure die-casting as volumes grow – providing flexibility to adapt to forecasting volumes for electric vehicles.

For ADDDAM to be successful in this venture, the company has identified four key mission ingredients: focus, environment, automation, and quality. Complying with these mission ingredients has led ADDDAM to choose Additive Industries’ MetalFABG2 as its metal AM printer for delivering high-quality die-cast replacement parts. They chose Additive Industries’ system for its high level of automation, which lowers costs, increases competitiveness, and improves resilience to workforce changes.

“We are very excited to partner with Additive Industries to move forward in our next step: Accessing the die-casting industry. The MetalFABG2 printer will be a great new asset to accommodate us in this next stage,” said Mathias Wiese, Chief Executive Officer at ADDDAM.

“We as Additive Industries are very happy to be able to provide ADDDAM with our MetalFABG2 printer to support them in their expansion towards the automotive and machine engineering industry,” said Mark Massey, Chief Executive Officer at Additive Industries.

ADDDAM will soon be hosting its first-ever AM Tech Day, together with partners and customers, at Durst Kraftwerk in Brixen, Italy, on September 21, 2023. The event is centered around assessment of the status quo and future development of AM in volume-flexible manufacturing of complex aluminium products.
