Further improved systems and processes provide high quality for series production;
new fields of application are developed
Frankfurt - Working metal and plastic laser-sintering systems, plus new metal and plastic materials, will be on display at the EOS booth (new hall 11 #C08) at this year's EuroMold in Frankfurt. The latest offerings from EOS, world-leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, have been developed in direct response to customer requests for e-Manufacturing solutions that increase productivity, cost-effectiveness and quality, particularly in the field of series production.
"At EuroMold, EOS' introduction of an enhanced system for Direct Metal Laser-Sintering (DMLS) sets new standards in terms of part quality and repeatability, while providing a higher cost efficiency and improved usability," says Peter Klink, Executive Vice President Global Sales at EOS.
Klink adds, "At the same time, the debut of new EOS materials further expands our quality leadership function. Very often, the development of these materials is based on a dialogue with our customers. Together we can solve their challenges in production. In addition, these new materials open up completely new fields of application."
The most recently developed metal material, EOS NickelAlloy IN625, is particularly useful in the aerospace industry. Notes Greg Morris, CEO of Morris Technologies, "We are using IN625 with DMLS to build complex aerospace parts for high-temperature and high-strength applications. The process achieves material properties that are comparable to wrought metals and far exceed casting. For prototyping projects, DMLS saves our customers weeks and often thousands of dollars compared with traditional methodologies."
EOS is also introducing two new plastic materials: PrimePart FR (PA 2241 FR)-a non-flammable material also geared especially to aerospace-and PrimePart ST (PEBA 2301), a flexible plastic that, due to its special material properties, offers unlimited potential applications.
Since they were introduced at EuroMold 2009, EOS' Part Property Profiles (PPP) for standardization and quality control of plastics have been successfully deployed in production. This year PPPs are available for the metal sector. EOS continues to extend the Part Property Management (PPM) concept related to the PPPs.
You're invited to join the EOS press conference on Dec. 1, 2010 at 14.00 h at the EOS booth. Please confirm your attendance under www.eos.info/interview. If you wish to arrange an interview with EOS at EuroMold 2010 please arrange an appointment in advance with Claudia Jordan (see contact details below).
EOS was founded in 1989 and is today the world leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems. Laser-sintering is the key technology for e-Manufacturing, the fast, flexible and cost effective production of products, patterns and tools. The technology manufactures parts for every phase of the product life cycle, directly from electronic data. Laser-sintering accelerates product development and optimizes production processes. EOS completed its business year 2008/2009 with revenues of approximately 60 million Euros. The company employs 300 people worldwide, 250 of them in Krailling near Munich, Germany.
