Specialist manufacturer FIT AG trusts in EOS solutions for additive manufacturing factory

FIT AG, specialist for Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, is expanding its industrial 3D printing capacities and investing in five EOS M 400-4 systems. The EOS solutions will be part of a factory with 4,200 m² of floor space, specially designed for serial production using industrial 3D printing technology. FIT AG is therefore continuing to build on its globally leading position as a special provider in the field of AM. At the same time, EOS will be strategic supplier to FIT AG, which is planning to use EOS systems to manufacture products mainly for the automotive industry, the world of motorsport, the medical technology sector, and the aerospace industry.

Clever entry into the world of industrial 3D printing

EOS, the world’s leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, introduced the material handling solution IPCM M pro for its well-established EOS M 290 system. For this purpose, the EOS M 290 – a highly productive system for the Additive Manufacturing (AM) of metal components – is equipped with a special process chamber door with coupling points to connect with the IPCM M pro and material containers. The combination of system and periphery enables users to convey material easy, fast and safe out of the system, sieve it and refill it into the system – thus, simplifying industrial 3D printing as an established manufacturing method overall.

Additive Manufacturing: a key technology for plastic injection and die casting

GF Machining Solutions—a long-time, major actor in plastic injection and die casting, supplying market players with high-performance machine tools—continues its legacy of providing customers with solutions for manufacturing the most complex molds, dies and inserts with the addition of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology to its multi-technology portfolio. Discover the GF Division’s AgieCharmilles AM S 290 Tooling solution for mold and die in Hall 27, Stand B24, at EMO Hannover 2017, September 18–23, in Hannover, Germany.

Classic car meets future technology: VW Caddy fitted with 3D-printed front-end structure

Altair, APWORKS, csi entwicklungstechnik, EOS GmbH, GERG, and Heraeus have used the front-end structure of a classic VW Caddy to demonstrate the full potential of industrial 3D printing within the automotive industry. The structure is very light, stable, and, at the same time, features a high degree of functional integration. In this joint development project known as 3i-PRINT, the involved companies covered every development step of the process, from design, simulation, optimization and manufacturing to post production of the part. From conceptual design to final vehicle, the project was completed in only nine months.

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.

Incodema3D increases investment of its Additive Manufacturing capabilities with EOS

EOS, one of the global technology and quality leaders for industrial additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, partnered with Incodema3D, a leader in direct metal 3D printing, to grow their EOS machine portfolio by 50 percent. Incodema3D’s most recent investment – two EOS M 290s and one EOS M 400, will join its existing portfolio of six EOS M 280s – providing its customers expanded production capabilities, enabling them to further capitalize on market opportunities with the latest in AM technology.

EOSPRINT 2.0: Intuitive, open and productive CAM tool for Industrial 3D Printing

EOS, the world’s leading technology provider for industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, presents EOSPRINT 2.0, the newest version of its comprehensive AM (Additive Manufacturing) CAM environment. Together with data preparation software like Siemens NX™, or Magics, the new EOS software provides an intuitive user interface, offers customers greater freedom for application-specific parameter optimization and allows easier part optimization – leading to increased productivity and part quality. EOSPRINT 2.0 is now available for metal systems EOS M 290 and EOS M 400. Future iterations will include support for all current EOS metal systems and future polymer systems.
