Validation of EOS M280 and EOS 290 machines

NN, Inc. Precision Engineered Products Group (PEP), a manufacturer of highly engineered precision customized solutions serving the medical market, has recently declared that both its EOS M280 and EOS 290 additive manufacturing machines have successfully completed validation based on installation qualification (IQ), operational qualification (OQ), and performance qualification (PQ) standards.

Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies can reduce costs and lead-times while enhancing product performance. Orthopedic manufacturers have been among the early implementers, and with NN Inc. PEP’s unique additive manufacturing services, orthopedic design engineers and others across the medical device industry can now take advantage of PEP’s advanced resources including the Sawbones Lab and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) capabilities.

“The interest in additive manufacturing among product developers across the entire spectrum is increasing exponentially, and we are proud to be one of the only companies in the world providing additive manufacturing services performed entirely on completely validated machines to ensure the highest and most consistent quality every time,” said Richard Holder, President and CEO of NN Inc. “We are also pleased to announce the addition of Dan Anderson to our exceptional sales team to support the growing demand for our capabilities. We know his 30 years of experience will serve our customers well as they look to us for their manufacturing needs.”
