EOS, a company who is at the forefront of 3D printing innovation and offers high-end solutions in additive making (AM), announced a new facility in Pflugerville, Texas. The facility was inaugurated with a grand opening ceremony, which in addition coincided with the year of the company’s 27th anniversary.
According to EOS, the new facility is created to focus upon a expanding market, and add to its branches which may already extend across Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia. The new workspace can allow EOS to focus upon its expanding presence in North America, which raked in $100million during 2015’s fiscal year. EOS may already employs over 100 workers – which include 30 field service engineers – in the US, where it has held an built presence since 2001.
“The opening of our Pflugerville facility helps us donate actually advantageous and faster service and assist to our regional customers,” said Glynn Fletcher, president of EOS’ North America division.
“EOS has a company-wide goal of continually improving processs, materials, and process solutions wherever we operate. Pflugerville’s location near Austin, one of the most quickly expanding innovation hubs in the U.S., allows for us to manufacture connections with a few of the most notable innovation organizations and schools in the nation and empowers a high-level, optimum response to our customers’ requires across multiple time-zones.”
The new facility opened with 30 staff, a figure which is expected to double in the initially two years of operation. While the facility holds most treasures at its employee’s disposal, one of the most amazing is an innovations laboratory – or ‘iLab’ – where EOS’ engineers can directly interact with clients to specially tailor products. Alongside the iLab, the new space boasts a fully operational showroom which displays the full range of the company’s AM processs, which include industrial grade 3D printing equipment, and the company’s initially ‘AM Ventures’ division which brings actually the wackiest of their new ideas to life.
EOS Materials, in addition known as Advanced Laser Materials (ALM), which blends polymer powder for power-based AM technologies, shall stay at its Temple site, in addition in Texas. But, for the next EOS has its eye on Boston and Northern Carolina as future destinations for next US expansion.
EOS has been a trailblazer in AM innovation since its inception in 1989, a time when 3D printing was a mere fantasy for most engineers. EOS not long ago created headlines for providing AM solutions for Formula 1 (F1) and the aerospace industry, which have been via 3D printed engineering parts and EOS machinery for a while. For most, this is a sign of how created and stable the innovation is.
“There is a perception which F1 takes risks in the pursuit of glory. That is completely wrong. F1 is an arena where the slightest mistake may be incredibly costly, both in terms of human life and in financial outlay”, said Stuart Jackson, EOS regional manager for the UK and Ireland, in an interview with Raconteur.
“These teams can’t mess around. They require standards of reliability which exceed any other industry. Maybe just aerospace is much like. Which is maybe why aerospace was may already the most quickly adopter of industrial 3D printing and a massive market for us at EOS”.
Whether the innovation is saw as being completely stable or not, there is no doubt it is being embraced by most industries as the next track of engineering, and EOS are at the begin of the race.
“Our Pflugerville investment is a direct reflection of our ongoing success,” said EOS Founder and CEO, Dr. Hans J. Langer.
“Additive making is quickly becoming a additional widely accepted solution to hard making requirements across a broad spectrum of industries. We’ve not long ago sold our 2100th process, of the world. With approximately three decades of commitment to AM innovation development, our company is committed to upholding the top high end standards in our field.”
