FOR INNOVATORS & VISIONARIES IN MICROMANUFACTURING

EXADDON

We provide high-precision and innovative additive micromanufacturing solutions for technology visionaries and companies aiming to be at the forefront of innovation.

Our unique CERES printing system is designed for researchers and scientists to conduct additive micro-manufacturing (µAM) of metals on the micrometer scale. CERES can print complex micro metal objects with nanometer resolution, in sizes from 1 µm to up to 1000 µm, at room temperature and without the need for post-processing. 

Due to the spectacular market response to our technology, the former business unit from Cytosurge AG was spun-off in 2019 into its own independent company, Exaddon AG.

Our mission is to solve the technological challenges of our partners and customers by creating new additive micro-manufacturing solutions. Speak with us today to discuss how our globally unique technology and expertise can realize and extend your manufacturing vision.
