EOS opens Innovation Center for 3D printing in Düsseldorf

EOS, one of the world’s leading technology suppliers in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, is opening a new location in Germany, the EOS Innovation Center Düsseldorf. The customer and technology center offers companies regional support for their 3D printing innovation projects with a wide range of consulting and training services that address key aspects along the entire process chain. The EOS Innovation Center has been formally opened on March 13, attended by numerous EOS customers as well as representatives of the regional capital of Düsseldorf.

Continental trusts in EOS industrial 3D printing technology

EOS, one of the world’s leading technology suppliers in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Continental. With the purchase of several EOS M 290 systems, Continental is investing in industrial 3D printing as a production technology. The company is deploying the EOS systems to produce metal components in series and has also received key support from EOS in installing the systems, training employees, developing applications, and launching manufacturing capacities.

Advancing Additive with CGTech

The manufacturing world is embracing 3D metal printing in a big way. GE Aviation is using it to print fuel nozzles, saving aircraft owners millions in operation costs annually per plane. Medical device companies use it to print patient-specific orthopedic implants and life-saving surgical instruments. These are just a few examples of the gigantic strides metal printing has made over the past decade, with countless more to come as the technology becomes increasingly main stream.

3D Systems to Keynote at Dubai Airshow 2017

This year at Dubai Airshow, 3D Systems’ Bryan Hodgson, Advanced Aerospace Applications, will deliver a keynote discussing the benefits of industrializing 3D printing for aerospace. Being held during the event’s conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems on November 15 at 12:40pm, Bryan’s presentation will introduce the benefits of additive manufacturing technologies for the industry and reveal how 3D Systems’ industrial-grade engineering software, additive manufacturing platforms, materials and On Demand Manufacturing services are enabling new levels of productivity in the aerospace industries.

Design for metal AM – a beginner’s guide

Additive manufacturing (AM) gives us tremendous freedom to create components with free-form and intricate features, direct from CAD and without the need for expensive tooling. These complex designs would be impractical, if not impossible, to produce conventionally. Additive components are often lighter, more efficient and better adapted to their application.

Renishaw and Aeromet work to optimise high-performance alloy

Renishaw and Aeromet International Limited announced a collaboration to establish additive manufacturing process parameters and material properties for Aeromet’s A20X® aluminium alloy. Following a successful debut at the Paris Air Show, last month, the two companies are working together to optimise the processing techniques for the high-performance alloy on Renishaw metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems. They are also investigating a range of heat treatment regimes to deliver optimum properties in additively manufactured components. The results of these developments will be made available to Renishaw and Aeromet customers.

Desktop Metal and its Mission to Make Metal 3D Printing Accessible

Additive manufacturing, probably better known by the masses as 3D printing, is a technology that’s been around for a long time but more recently has generated a lot of buzz, and not just among the technophiles and early adopters. Students, home hobbyists, makers, and yes, certainly product designers and engineers are seeing manufacturing from a fresh, new perspective. Imagine a technology that enables you to quite literally make anything, any shape of any complexity. No more minimum production runs. You need just one? It’s now doable.

First Air-Worthy Metal Printed RF Filter Ready for Take-Off

The last two years (2015 and 2016) could be looked upon as the tipping point for direct metal printing (DMP) within the aerospace industry, as the technology increasingly made the jump beyond prototyping to production parts and assemblies ready for flight.

EOS releases EOSTATE Exposure OT: Optical Tomography (OT) for real-time monitoring of metal-based Additive Manufacturing

EOS, a leading technology provider for industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, is expanding its EOSTATE monitoring suite to include an additional tool. EOSTATE Exposure OT, the first commercial system for optical tomography worldwide, now provides real-time, camera-based monitoring of the additive, metal-based build process, based on the EOS M 290 system. The solution fully maps each part throughout the build process, layer by layer, regardless of its geometry and size.
