formnext 2018: EOS showcases new polymer technology and metal 3D printing production cell

– EOS LaserProFusion technology produces up to 10 times faster using one million

diode lasers

– Latest EOS M 300-4 system with automation and software integration is basis

for a metal AM production cell for series manufacturing

– Technology Readiness Level for materials and processes offer users a validated

data basis for additive serial applications

EOS continues to drive the industrialization of additive manufacturing (AM) and will present its newest solutions at this year’s formnext. With LaserProFusion, EOS introduces a revolutionary technology for polymer additive manufacturing: with nearly one million diode lasers melting the material, building up the part layer by layer, this build process is so productive that it can serve as an injection molding alternative for many applications. Furthermore, EOS will show the latest EOS M 300-4 system as foundation of a production cell for serial additive manufacturing with metal materials. In addition, the company introduces Technology Readiness Level (TRL) in both the field of metals and polymers, which will provide additional clarity on the maturity of materials and processes.

The formnext trade show will be held in Frankfurt/Main from November 13 to 16, 2018. With the slogan “Start your industrial production now” EOS will showcase its portfolio of additive manufacturing systems, software solutions, materials and a range of services and consulting in hall 3.1 at booth G50.

Dr. Tobias Abeln, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at EOS says: “With the LaserProFusion technology, we are achieving a new level of productivity in polymer industrial 3D printing for serial manufacturing. It is a technology that can be an alternative to injection molding in many applications, respectively enables tool-free injection molding. This will make industrial 3D printing attractive for a completely new market in the future.”
