Working metal and plastic laser-sintering systems, plus new metal and plastic materials, will be on display at the EOS booth at this year’s EuroMold in Frankfurt. The latest offerings from EOS, a world-leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems meet requests for e-Manufacturing systems that increase productivity, cost-effectiveness and quality, particularly in the field of series production.
“The Direct Metal Laser-Sintering (DMLS) system sets new standards in terms of part quality and repeatability, while providing a higher cost efficiency and improved usability,” said Peter Klink, Executive Vice President Global Sales at EOS.
The most recently developed metal material, EOS NickelAlloy IN625, is particularly useful in the aerospace industry. Noted Greg Morris, CEO of Morris Technologies, “We are using IN625 with DMLS to build complex aerospace parts for high-temperature and high-strength applications. The process achieves material properties that are comparable to wrought metals and far exceed casting. For prototyping projects, DMLS saves our customers weeks and often thousands of dollars compared with traditional methodologies.”
Flexible laser-sintered PrimePart ST plastic, expanded—
EOS is also introducing two new plastic materials: PrimePart FR (PA 2241 FR)—a non-flammable material geared to aerospace—and PrimePart ST (PEBA 2301), a flexible plastic that, due to its special material properties, offers unlimited potential applications.
