With the purchase of several EOS M 290 systems, Continental, a developer of pioneering technologies and services for the sustainable and connected mobility of people and their goods, is investing in industrial 3D printing as a production technology. The company is deploying the EOS systems to produce metal components in series and has also received key support from EOS in installing the systems, training employees, developing applications, and launching manufacturing capacities.
The EOS M 290 enables Continental to quickly and cost-effectively produce metal parts using additive manufacturing (AM) technology. Continental has also collaborated extensively with EOS at other levels: EOS installed the systems at the Continental plants within two months and subsequently helped the customer’s staff to launch its additive manufacturing capacities. The close cooperation when introducing the systems at Continental is being supplemented and continued by the comprehensive local EOS service network.
With a building volume of 250 x 250 x 325 mm, the EOS M 290 allows a fast, flexible and cost-effective production of metal parts directly from CAD data. The system’s intuitive user interface, the intelligent software concept with a combination of open and standardized parameter sets and the improved filter system are designed for the industrial production. A range of validated materials and processes as well as extensive software solutions for data preparation and quality management complete the solution portfolio provided by the EOS M 290 system.
