EOS has presented the EOS M 100, a new system for Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) ® at this year’s Formnext in Frankfurt/Germany. Dr. Adrian Keppler, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at EOS: “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. With its small build volume, which is based on a round build platform with a diameter of 100 mm, the system focuses on the cost-efficient production of small quantities. For example, the system can produce approximately seventy dental crowns and bridges in three hours.” And he adds: “Initially, the EOS M 100 system can process two types of materials, specifically EOS CobaltChrome SP2 (CE-certified, CE 0537) and EOS StainlessSteel 316L, depending on the specific industry application. EOS Titanium Ti64 is still in the development stage, and will be the next material to be made available for this system.”
The system features a 200W fibre laser, which due to of its beam quality and performance stability ensures optimum and consistent processing conditions, resulting in reproducible parts qualities. This feature makes it possible to produce high-quality, highly-complex and delicate components on the EOS M 100 system.
