Industrial 3D printing expertise

Additive Manufacturing

ADDere Additive Manufacturing provides a number of best-in-class metal 3D printing products and services, from complete enclosed additive systems to just additive engines. ADDere’s products and services are based on clean, safe and reliable laser-wire additive manufacturing (LWAM) technologies that work on a fused metal deposition layering method that produces near-net shaped results in the final printed part.

ADDere Additive Manufacturing

ADDere is designed to manufacture large-scale industrial parts in some of the most challenging metal-based materials. With our internally developed control systems, the ADDere laser-wire systems are capable of 3D printing high-quality, near net shaped metal deposition with post-processing taken into consideration.
