What is ADDere?
The ADDere 3D printing system at its heart is a 3D Laser-Wire Additive manufacturing process. The system uses laser power as a main heat source to melt the base material while hot wire is used to pre-heat the welding wire.
The ADDere additive printing system uses a 6 axis industrial robot with multiple external position axes as its motion system. Using industrial robotics for motion control allows for much finer position as well as the opportunity to deposit materials in much more flexible ways than traditional Cartesian gantry systems in the market.
The robust, closed loop deposition sensor package maintains quality and precision at much higher levels. It further opens the ADDere 3D metal printing system to even more metal printing techniques due to the fine-grain control the purpose-built control system delivers.
