One of the largest collections of direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) systems is open for touring at the PDx/amerimold show (May 11-13, Cincinnati, OH). EOS e-Manufacturing partner Morris Technologies (MTI) will kick off the show by hosting the tour from 9 a.m. to noon on May 11 at the nearby MTI plant. EOS, a leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, will also demonstrate its EOSINT M 270 DMLS machine and exhibit laser-sintered parts at booth 319.
“This is a great opportunity to see traditional manufacturing equipment and DMLS systems running side-by-side,” says Andy Snow, Regional Sales Manager, EOS of North America. “Visitors can learn first-hand from Morris how laser-sintering fits into a job shop’s suite of processes to give customers the very best options in terms of cost, quality and lead time.”
Morris Technologies was the first U.S. firm to install DMLS equipment, in 2003. Today MTI and its sister company, Rapid Quality Manufacturing (RQM), have nine DMLS systems, including the EOSINT M 270 Extended system for processing titanium (Ti64), a nickel superalloy (NickelAlloy IN718), and an aluminum alloy (AlSi10Mg). In addition to these three, laser-sintered metals available at MTI include maraging and stainless steels, a bronze alloy, and cobalt chrome. Morris Technologies will exhibit at booth 419 during the PDx/amerimold show, where they will be joined by RQM and MicroTek Finishing, North America’s exclusive provider of the Micro Machining Process (MMP) for high-precision surface finishing. The MMP is a unique finishing technology developed by the Swiss company BESTinCLASS.
