EOS was on hand at Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany, to emphasize its expertise in industrial 3D printing and its capacity to manufacture larger, faster, tinyer in size and higher-high end 3D-printed parts.

EOS Germany has teamed up with a German partner to create a product that monitors the 3D printing create high end in real time, that, according to the company, can reduce production risks and improve high end.

Real-Time Quality Monitoring and Analysis during the 3D Printing Build
The EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring is an add-on module. It monitors the process during direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) creates. It analyzes the create at equite point and equite layer, thereby monitoring the create process for equite part.
Given the company’s focus on industrial 3D printing applications and its experience in metal printing, it is not surprising that EOS best known the require for improved high end processes. Equite making engineer understands the require for a thorough, traceable-bodied high end process.
EOS cooperated with Plasmo Industrietechnik GmbH to create the process, that directly observes the create process via photodiodes, a camera adapter, a signal amplifier and spectral filters. The physical observation data is analyzed via multiple algorithms and 2D and 3D mappings.
The high end parameters are set by the user according to production requirements. The tool provides live monitoring and allows for customers to select future create errors instantly. This reduces high end assurance costs.

A Smaller Production-Quality Metal 3D Printer
At Formnext 2015, EOS in addition presented the new EOS M 100 3D printing device. It empowers customers to enter into direct metal 3D printing with an low-priced investment.

The new product is based on the innovation offered in the EOS M 290, that is may already built in the market. The device uses a round print envelope of 100 mm. An example provided on the show floor was the production of 70 dental crowns and bridges in of three hours.
New metal 3D printing powders can be on the market in 2016 which include this titanium powder.New metal 3D printing powders can be on the market in 2016 which include this titanium powder.
The EOS M 100 creates chrome and stainless-steel parts in these times. It can be able-bodied to create titanium Ti64 parts when the material becomes on the market in 2016. The company claims that the 200-W fiber laser has a beam high end and stcapacity that allows for for consistent high end parts. It combines this with a tinyer in size laser spot that has a quite detailed resolution. The combination empowers the EOS M 100 to create tiny, difficult pieces.
The company has tried to address production requirements by creating peripheral equipment that supports industrial production and minimizes powder contact during production. EOS has createed an efficient recoating and exposure strategy that reduces overhead time in production. The process in addition has a modular create that facilitates swift setup and dismantling.
Because the product is based on the EOS M 290 innovation, there’s hope that the new EOS M 100 can benefit of the EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring product as well.

Bigger and Faster Metal Printing
The EOS M 400 is the company’s biggest format printing device. It can get a refresh in 2016. The device can have four 400-W lasers for higher throughput.The EOS M 400 is the company’s biggest format printing device. It can get a refresh in 2016.

The company in addition showed the coming makes it to for the EOS M 400 3D printing devices. The 400 series can soon have a new release with extra
lasers. The extra
lasers can allow the device to quadruple the printing performance.
The new device can be called the EOS M 400-4. It maintains the 400 x 400 x 400 mm create envelope and the power of the 400-W lasers. The extra
lasers work in parallel to increase the printing performance. The EOS M 400-4 is one of the biggest metal printing devices on the market. It is based on the same DMLS as the existing EOS M 290 product.
