For over sixty years Geo Kingsbury has supplied the UK’s most advanced manufacturing sectors with high-quality German machine tools. The latest addition to the Geo Kingsbury portfolio is its exclusive distributorship for AddUp metal additive manufacturing.
Created in April 2016, AddUp is a joint venture of two major players in the industrial sector, the Fives and Michelin groups.
Despite its recent formation, AddUp is offering production solutions that have been developed over many years. Fives Group entered the sector in 2011 with the design and manufacture of its first metal laser deposition machine. Michelin started working on AM as early as 2003, as it was keen to introduce innovative sipes into the tread patterns of tyres and it was not possible to produce the required mould inserts in any other way.
Using the combination of their know-how, skills, and experience, AddUp offers reliable scalable industrial solutions in the field of additive metal fabrication. The AddUp FormUp 350 system is aimed at aeronautics, automotive and medical manufacturers, as well as other industrial sectors, where metal additive manufacturing can offer an advantage in terms of productivity, parts quality, production flexibility and lead-time.
