EOS, the world’s leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, introduces its EOS P 500 system for additive manufacturing (AM) at formnext 2017. The system addresses companies who want to mass produce polymer parts on an industrial scale in combination with premium part quality.

The new system offers high efficiency for lowest cost-per-part, comes automation ready and can process polymer materials. For the development of a first high performance polymer, EOS has recently signed a joint development agreement with Arkema. With the EOS P 500 businesses receive smart and robust technology to foster a reliable, flexible and cost-effective production.

The EOS P 500 comes alongside several solutions for monitoring and integration. The system offers industrial quality assurance through sensory, as well as camera based (optical and thermal), data evaluation.

The first company acquiring the new polymer system EOS P 500 is Materialise. The company incorporates 3D printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D printing services, which together form the backbone of the 3D printing industry.
