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.

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.

Robotics meet Additive Manufacturing
