EOS, a leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, and AMFG, a leading provider of MES software for additive manufacturing, announced a partnership enabling direct streaming to and connectivity with EOS machines.
The lack of connectivity across the additive manufacturing workflow remains one of the biggest barriers to adoption. Through their partnership, EOS and AMFG aim to remove this barrier and establish a fully connected and automated additive manufacturing workflow. Customers of EOS machines will be able to manage their entire additive manufacturing operations with AMFG’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES), while simultaneously connecting directly with their machines through the software platform.
Through AMFG’s MES software, EOS customers can also prepare build jobs and set important parameters like part orientation. Builds can then be sliced and the data sent directly to an EOS 3D printing system. The ability to monitor and receive machine data in real time is also in the works. Both EOS and AMFG are exhibitors at this year’s Formnext trade show. Visit EOS in Hall11.1, Stand D31 and AMFG in Hall 12.1, Stand G81.
