The new Armadillo Additive facility specializes in Grade 23 Titanium – offering unmatched strength-to-weight ratios and biocompatibility for medical devices. The company’s capabilities extend to intricate lattice design work, optimizing structural integrity, and material efficiency. Complemented by comprehensive in-house services like laser marking, heat treatment, and bead blasting, the company delivers end-to-end solutions that meet the rigorous demands of medical engineering.

According to Noah Smith, Director of Operations at Armadillo Additive, the company chose AddUp’s FormUp 350 because it was the only machine on the market able to produce high-quality medical implants, at volume, with unrivaled surface finish as printed, which limits the need for post-processing. “The FormUp 350 is a dream come true for us. It’s on the cutting edge from both a software and hardware perspective. The large build volume and quad laser system allow us to get production jobs done faster than the competition, while the roller recoater lets us push the design envelope to the next level.”
