The MetalFAB-600 will offer a build size of 600x600mm and 1000mm Z-height, one of the largest volumes in the industry, and 5X larger in volume than Additive Industries’ current MetalFAB1, that already offers 420x420x400. The MetalFAB-600 will be highly productive with a deposition rate up to 1000cc/hour, using 10x1kW lasers. It is developed on a platform that allows even further expansion of the build volume and productivity in the future.
The MetalFAB-600 will build upon the knowledge and experience gained with the MetalFAB1 in robustness and automating key production processes. The automation will focus on powder handling, alignments, and calibrations to ensure the highest possible output. The MetalFAB-600 is designed to achieve the lowest cost per part, targeting traditional casting and machining industry.
In view of the importance of this project, and other projects on the development roadmap of Additive Industries, acting CEO Mark Vaes will reassume his role as CTO and manage the development team of the MetalFAB-600. Vaes combined both roles over the past few months. Jonas Wintermans, co-founder of the company, will step in as acting CEO.
Jonas Wintermans: “Right now it is crucial for Additive Industries to develop and innovate. The new MetalFAB-600 project is very relevant for our customers and therefore important for Additive.
