Additive Industries, an industrial metal 3D printing company, has introduced its latest innovation, the MetalFab 300 Flex. This system offers a unique on-demand platform size – providing unprecedented flexibility for manufacturers and making metal AM more accessible than ever.

The MetalFab 300 Flex signifies Additive Industries’ commitment to enabling the adoption of industrial metal AM. With its proven powder bed fusion (PBF) technology, the MetalFab 300 Flex promises to unlock new possibilities for manufacturers with various application/part sizes. Unlike traditional metal AM printers, MetalFab 300 Flex offers a cost-effective entry package with a novel business model to make it easier than ever for manufacturers to reduce the cost and risk of adopting metal AM.

Designed as a cost-effective entry package, the MetalFab 300 Flex will have two full-field 500-watt lasers that can access every corner of a flexible build envelope. The baseline build area will be 11.81 x 11.81 x 15.75in, with the ability to flex access to a larger 16.54 x 16.54 x 15.75in envelope on-demand, either with a monthly or lifetime license. The MetalFab 300 Flex is priced at the same level as a medium-frame printer. It is also the only printer that lets users increase their build area on demand.

The MetalFab 300 Flex ensures reliability and efficiency, but the true innovation of the system lies in its configuration – specifically designed to simplify the adoption process for new market entrants, coupled with an innovative business model that allows for flexible scaling.

The system caters primarily to new entrants in the metal AM market, across industries such as automotive, defense, and energy (including oil and gas, semiconductor, and industrials). By offering a flexible build envelope and scalability options, the MetalFab 300 Flex appeals to companies with varying production needs and budget constraints.

“At Additive Industries, we are proud to lead the way in making metal additive manufacturing more accessible and affordable. The MetalFab  300 Flex which is based on our proven metal PBF technology is designed to help our customers manage their technical and financial risk as they grow their AM business. It is specifically aimed at customers who need to be able to build both small and large parts but without incurring the upfront expense of a large printer,” said Mark Massey, CEO of Additive Industries.
