EOS will unveil a new metal system, a new monitoring solution, and a new material at the inaugural formnext trade fair, an additive technology and tool making conference taking place Nov. 17-20 in Frankfurt.
The EOS M 100, which the company created as a new system for Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), “presents a compact system that provides an easy and cost-effective entry into Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS),” the company said in a press release profiling its participation at the additive technology and tool making conference. The new system is said to parallel the EOS M 290 metal system in terms of process and component quality.
“The EOS M 100 system impresses with the proven DMLS quality, and is also the ideal choice for those considering an entry into additive manufacturing,” said Dr. Adrian Keppler, EOS’ chief marketing officer. “With its small build volume, which is based on a round build platform with a diameter of 100 millimeters, the system focuses on the cost-efficient production of small quantities.”
EOS’ new monitoring solution, the EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring, will allow for the observation of the entire DMLS build process, “per melting point, per layer, and per component,” EOS claimed. The monitoring solution will be released as an add-on to the EOS M 290 DMLS system.
“With EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring we offer a powerful expert tool to those who need to improve their quality assurance procedures for AM and who want to build up deep insights into the DMLS process to e.g. support further process development,” said Dr. Tobias Abeln, EOS’ chief technology officer.
EOS’ new material, the EOS StainlessSteel CX, works well when developing injection molding tools, especially those used to create goods made of corrosive plastics or medical products.
“The stainless steel is resistant to most corrosive plastics and diluted acids, making it the first choice for many demanding industrial applications,” the company said.
In addition to the presentation of its new products and solutions, EOS will discuss its current portfolio of AM systems, solutions, and materials, as well as the services it provides, like modular consulting services intended to help customers throughout the valued-added process.
