EOS, the global technology and quality specialist for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, has recently presented its extensive range of AM solutions for all fields of application – from rapid prototyping to large-scale production – at K 2016.
In the area of plastics-based Additive Manufacturing, EOS presented the high productivity system EOS P 770 for the first time. Thanks to its new hardware and software features, the EOS P 770 is up to twenty percent more productive and can achieve up to 10 percent decreased costs per part than its predecessor. For the innovative production of mould inserts for large-volume production using injection moulding, EOS together with GF Machining Solutions (GFMS) presented the metal system AM S 290 Tooling. The system is based on the established EOS M 290 system and forms the basis for a seamless integration of additive into conventional manufacturing. The strategic partnership between both companies is a key driver for the further industrialisation in the tooling sector.
As part of their strategic partnership, EOS and GF Machining Solutions displayed the AM S 290 Tooling system at the EOS booth. The Additive Manufacturing system for mould and die industry offers the proven quality of the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology from EOS and enables the production of high-efficiency injection moulding tools with conformal cooling for serial production.
