What We Do:
Aditiv Solutions, a South African tech start-up, is all about crafting high-quality, cost-effective additive manufacturing equipment. Our expertise shines in developing metal 3D printers with the latest technology in hardware and software, pushing the boundaries of additive manufacturing and solving problems from a different angle in manufacturing.
To trigger a transformative phase of manufacturing innovation, we dedicate ourselves to refining the accessibility and scalability of 3D printing, specifically within industrial manufacturing. Our mission revolves around harnessing the great potential of 3D printing to guide people in new dimensions of design innovation. This will open the opportunity to engineer parts that are lighter and superior in quality compared to some other manufacturing processes. We aim to revolutionize the conventional manufacturing landscape.
Through cost-effective hardware and software solutions, we are committed to popularising the benefits of industrial Additive Manufacturing, making it more accessible across various industries and applications. Our goal is to assist with the wide-ranging deployments of large-scale, distributed Additive Manufacturing fleets. This will shape the future of manufacturing into a domain of efficiency, creativity, and superior solutions.
It’s important to note that our mission does not promote 3D printing as a universal “cure for all challenges“, but rather focuses on making it viable for a diverse range of tailored solutions, redefining the possibilities of industrial manufacturing.
We want to make metal 3D printing more useful and affordable for creating things. Our mission is to encourage people to use 3D printing more regularly in a variety of industries as a form of production manufacturing. This will help you to design lightweight, high-quality, and customisable parts for various uses. But it’s important to know that 3D printing isn’t a solution for everything, just an awesome alternative to a wide and new range of manufacturing needs.
“To empower a new era of manufacturing innovation by enhancing the accessibility and scalability of Metal 3D Printing across diverse industries and applications.”
Who we are
Aditiv Solutions was founded in 2019 by a team of engineers experienced in the development of high-end metal additive manufacturing machines for the aerospace industry. Our founders identified a gap and an opportunity in the additive manufacturing market to make the technology accessible to more users.
The main purpose was to develop a range of metal 3D printers, based on Powder Bed Fusion technology, that can be used by a “wider” range of industries, without compromising on quality.
Traditionally, metal additive manufacturing was limited to highly specialised industries and use-cases. For most applications, designers and engineers could not afford to capitalise on the advantages of metal 3D printing. We believe this is changing.
We certainly do not promote 3D printing as a solution to all challenges, but firmly believe that the technology is largely untapped, and our systems are designed to address the challenges our customers have when using 3D printing.
We pride ourselves on building machines to the highest standard that are safe; easy to use; simple to install and maintain; and cost-effective. All our machines have an open architecture, meaning that we do not limit the materials you can use, and you have full access to all process parameters.
Our flagship machine, the HYRAX, was built to operate just as well in a small manufacturing environment as in a large production plant. The machine is compact in size and cost-effective to buy, install and maintain. It requires almost no support equipment and runs on single-phase power.
Since the launch of the HYRAX, this innovative machine has already been recognised on a global scale. In 2021, Aditiv Solutions was awarded the international EUREKA label by the European EUREKA network, and in 2022, it was honoured with the prestigious Electra Mining award for the most innovative South African product of the year.
A 3D printing machine is of course much more than just a piece of hardware. The real magic lies in software. Software to take a CAD design and convert it into an intricate piece of metal. Software that allows an operator to interface with his machine in the most ergonomic way possible. Software that interfaces a machine with the factory around it. Software to allow remote control of a “fleet” of printers in a production environment.
At Aditiv Solutions, we realise the value of software as an integral part of the solution. Our software solutions are unique, and our architecture is designed to support a new industrial revolution in manufacturing. Our software team is constantly developing new solutions and working closely with our clients to solve industry-specific needs.
Feel free to reach out to us with your questions or specific needs.
Our team is anything but ordinary. We’re a dynamic group of specialists with decades of experience in crafting high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines. But we’re not bound by tradition; we marry our expertise with the latest software technologies. From design and simulation to code development and product life-cycle management, we’re at the forefront of innovation. Our commitment is simple: High-end doesn’t have to mean high-cost.
