EOS and Germany’s MTU Aero Engines have signed an agreement for joint strategic development related to a system of quality control for metal-based additive manufacturing. The first result of the joint endeavor is use of optical tomography (OT) in the modular EOS monitoring portfolio. In addition to several sensors that monitor the general system status, the camera-based OT technology controls the exposure process and melting characteristics of the material to ensure optimum coating and exposure quality.

According to EOS, the system enables a large part of the quality control process that previously took place downstream to now be performed during the manufacturing process, resulting in reduced costs.
