EOS, on of the world’s leading technology suppliers in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, will showcase its latest and growing portfolio of additive manufacturing (AM) systems and software solutions, services and consulting at this year’s formnext in Frankfurt/Germany from November 14-17, 2017.
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.
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, 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.
AUDI AG based in Ingolstadt, Germany, one of the leading manufacturers of premium automobiles, has started a development partnership with EOS, one of the global technology and quality leaders for high-end Additive Manufacturing solutions. The EOS consulting division “Additive Minds” is supporting Audi in the holistic implementation of this industrial 3D printing technology and the development of a corresponding 3D printing center in Ingolstadt.
EOS, one of the worldwide technology and quality leaders for high-end solutions in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM), exhibited its latest AM and software solutions at the formnext trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. These included a scalable EOS Shared Modules concept to optimise all stages of the AM build process, the integrated manufacturing software EOSPRINT 2.0 as well as EOSTATE Exposure for the real-time monitoring of the build process.
