Zeda, Inc. (previously PrinterPrezz / Vertex Manufacturing), a global leader in advanced 3D manufacturing and nanotech solutions for the medical, space, aerospace, and defense industries announces just added its first FormUp 350 Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) machine from AddUp. This machine is the first placement of eight (8) FormUp 350 systems to support the growth of Zeda’s newly expanded manufacturing facility located in Cincinnati, OH.

This first FormUp 350 was deployed in March 2023 to print metal parts using Inconel 718 and will be qualified to support critical aerospace and defense part manufacturing. With fully certified ISO AS9100 facilities, Zeda is providing new levels of insight, understanding and application of 3D printing technologies. Zeda has identified unique capabilities made possible with AddUp’s FormUp 350 which aid in broadening the application of 3D printing technology and how it can be utilized across multiple industries including those in regulated spaces such as aerospace and defense industries.

“We are pleased to be adding AddUp’s tools to our portfolio of advanced manufacturing technologies,” said Zeda CTO, Greg Morris. “AddUp has demonstrated a set of capabilities that enable us to address unique design and application challenges faced by our growing base of aerospace, space, and defense customers.”
