EOS North American User Day Comes to IMTS
The User Day is one of multiple events at IMTS addressing heightened interest in additive manufacturing technology. Additive has also added its name to a pavilion.
Rebuild, Don't Replace
If you could rebuild a damaged or worn-out mold insert instead of replacing it with a new one, wouldn’t you?
Laser Sintering System Builds Metal Parts
EOS’ M 290 direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) system, the successor to its EOSINT M 280, is designed for the production of serial components, spare parts and prototypes.
The freedom to tailor a part’s shape to its engineering needs—particularly when the result is a complex organic form—might be the most transformative benefit of additive manufacturing.
Partners Create Medical Products Using DMLS
EOS has partnered with medical device manufacturer Innovative Medical Device Solutions (IMDS) to offer product development resources for metal additive manufacturing designs.
Movable Components, No Assembly Required
A medical device maker produces a 13-piece articulating section with zero assembly work, thanks to DMLS’s ability to make the
free-moving section as one complete piece.
Additive and Subtractive Together
At the recent International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, EOS and machine tool maker GF AgieCharmilles demonstrated additive and subtractive processes working together to produce a titanium tibial tray for knee implants.
The Future of Manufacturing
According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?
Conformal Cooling Through DMLS
Unlike subtractive methods such as cutting or drilling, EOS’ direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) system is an additive process that enables users to seamlessly “build in” cooling channels while creating a part layer by layer.
