Addman Engineering purchases Velo3D additive manufacturing system

May 10, 2021
Velo3D’s AI-powered, full-stack additive manufacturing solution eliminates the constraints that come with traditional manufacturing or other additive manufacturing providers.

Advanced additive manufacturing solutions provider Addman Engineering (Bonita Springs, FL and Westfield, IN) has selected Velo3D (Campbell, CA) to meet a growing demand from its energy and aerospace customers in the Indianapolis, IN area.

Velo3D’s AI-powered, full-stack additive manufacturing solution, which integrates Flow design software and Assure quality assurance, allows for simplification of parts, previously impossible geometries, and shorter print times without the constraints that come with traditional manufacturing or other additive manufacturing providers.

The full-stack laser powder-bed fusion 3D printing solution from Velo3D enables customer design of the next generation of spacecraft and turbomachinery without compromising their designs for the sake of manufacturability. The process saves time and avoids waste by removing unnecessary steps, and reduces time to test or go to market, while also ensuring production-ready quality in every build.

In addition to owning and operating the first Velo3D metal AM solution in the Indianapolis area, ADDMAN holds reservations for the highly anticipated VELO3D Sapphire XC large format metal AM solution. Each Sapphire XC system will provide up to four times the productivity of ADDMAN’s new Sapphire system, positioning the company to keep up with increasing demand for complex, high-performance parts spurred by the booming commercial space industry.

Addman delivers large-capacity 3D metal printing for aerospace, defense, energy, and manufacturing. The company is ITAR-registered and compliant with ISO9001:2015 and AS9100D, meeting FAA, DoD, and NASA quality requirements for aviation, defense, and space organizations.

Addman closed on the purchase of 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing in March 2021. In a little over a month since the acquisition, additional highly skilled staff have been hired to support the growing relationships with existing aerospace clients. Additional machining, quality, and capacity expansions are also being realized. Already AS9100-certified, the quality department is being bolstered through the addition of a Creaform EXAscan Black and a high-end CMM. Planning for NADCAP accreditation is also in progress.
