By providing 3D printing solutions for flexible and efficient production on an industrial scale, EOS, a leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, is shaping the future of manufacturing with the launch of the EOS P 500, its newest polymer system. This system processes polymer materials that require operating temperatures of up to 300°C. It addresses the requirements of mass production of high quality polymer parts based on additive manufacturing.
Dr. Adrian Keppler, Speaker of the Corporate Management (CEO) of EOS said: “The AM market is currently experiencing enormous change as it continues to develop into a mainstream market leveraging a well-established technology. As a result, our customers are changing too. AM becomes part of existing production environment and will play a key role in the digitalization of manufacturing. Here, technology integration will be key over the coming years.”
EOS has customers in 65 countries. It increased its turnover by 10% over the previous fiscal year 2015/2016 to an expected 345 million Euros. Over this period, EOS delivered around 450 systems worldwide. The worldwide installed base of EOS systems rose to around 3,000, representing approximately 51% polymer and 49% metal technology. EOS also sees continuous increase of metal applications particularly for serial applications, which is also reflected in the 94 EOS M 4-series metal systems installed to date.
