October 11, 2017: Specialist manufacturer FIT AG trusts in EOS solutions for additive manufacturing factory

Lupburg/Krailling, October 11, 2017 - FIT AG, specialist for Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, is expanding its industrial 3D printing capacities and investing in five EOS M 400-4 systems. The EOS solutions will be part of a factory with 4,200 m of floor space, specially designed for serial production using industrial 3D printing technology. FIT AG is therefore continuing to build on its globally leading position as a special provider in the field of AM. At the same time, EOS will be strategic supplier to FIT AG, which is planning to use EOS systems to manufacture products mainly for the automotive industry, the world of motorsport, the medical technology sector, and the aerospace industry.

As a specialist manufacturer of prototypes and pilot series, FIT AG offers its customers a broad portfolio of AM solutions that feature short lead times as well as software and hardware solutions. Both national and international companies from numerous industries rely on FIT AG to supply them with optimized, additively manufactured components more quickly and with greater efficiency. In turn, FIT AG is relying on the 3D printing solutions of EOS, in order to meet the continually growing market demand for high-quality products. EOS is the world's leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers.

Seamless AM integration in industrial manufacturing The newly purchased EOS M 400-4 systems are equipped with four lasers to ensure greater productivity and excellent part quality. At the same time, the system features a particularly large build platform of 400 x 400 x 400 mm, making the EOS M 400-4 the ideal machine for manufacturing high-quality metal components on an industrial scale. With these five new systems, FIT AG is looking to increase the diversity of the materials it can process in-house and thereby boost its overall manufacturing capacity. FIT AG aims to automate its processes and therefore drive the future of large-scale industrial Additive Manufacturing.

Accordingly, building on a wealth of experience gathered over decades, in April 2016 FIT AG began operating the first factory specially designed for Additive Manufacturing - the FIT Factory - where it already deploys a number of EOS systems. By the end of 2017, FIT AG plans to establish an additional AM factory on its AM campus, where the five new EOS M 400-4 systems will be initially installed.

Carl Fruth, CEO of FIT AG explained, "The new generation of EOS systems not only convinced us with the outstanding quality of the components it produces, but above all with its open interfaces, which allow us to seamlessly integrate these machines in our quality assurance concepts - a further big step towards achieving the industrial-scale Additive Manufacturing of components." He continued by saying, "It is our declared objective to supply our customers with components of exceptional quality from one single source. We intend to achieve this objective as we move forward with EOS as a dependable partner and long-term supplier."

Dr. Adrian Keppler, CEO of EOS GmbH, stated, "I am delighted that over 20 years of successful collaboration between EOS and FIT AG in the field of Additive Manufacturing of polymer parts are now being extended to include metal components. Carl Fruth of FIT AG is one of the most experienced pioneers in 3D printing manufacturing. We are therefore proud that he has placed his trust in EOS when it comes to establishing his AM factories. The investment in five EOS M 400-4 systems shows that our solutions are ideally suitable for an integrated large-scale AM production scenario."

July 10: EOS enters into a strategic cooperation with GF Machining Solutions

EOS, the global technology and market leader for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, has entered into a strategic cooperation with GF Machining Solutions, the Swiss-based industrial company GF (Georg Fischer), Schaffhausen, to offer customers innovative solutions combining both companies' technologies.

The two companies have agreed to focus on the mold and die sector. They will develop exclusive solutions for mold makers, a market in which GF holds a leading position thanks to its EDM, high speed milling and automation technologies.

The additive manufacturing technology offers for such customers the possibility to generate metal inserts featuring cooling close to the surface, thus allowing for a shorter mold cooling sequence and therefore a much faster plastic injection cycle.

GF and EOS will undertake the integration of the additive manufacturing machines into the production process of mold inserts, including the necessary software and automation link with downstream machine-tools and measuring devices.

"The cooperation allows us to increase the value for customers by integrating conventional and additive technologies. This is a large step towards seamless production and we join forces with a strong and experienced partner." says EOS founder and CEO, Dr.

May 14: RAPID.TECH 2014: EOS launches the EOS M 290 metal system to succeed the established EOSINT M 280 system

EOS M 290 Metal Additive Manufacturing system (source: EOS) EOS M 290 Metal Additive Manufacturing system (source: EOS) Erfurt, 14 May 2014 - EOS, the technology and market leader in design-driven, integrated e-manufacturing solutions in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM), will be exhibiting its products at its stand at this year's Rapid. Tech, on 14-15 May in Erfurt. At stand 2-301 in Hall 2, the company will be displaying its brand-new EOS M 290 system, the successor to the established and market-leading EOSINT M 280, designed for the tool-free production of high-quality serial components, spare parts and prototypes. With a build volume of 250 mm x 250 mm x 325 mm, the EOS M 290 permits flexible and economic manufacturing of metal components. The system is available now to purchase.

Dr. Adrian Keppler, CMO at EOS stresses, "EOS has incorporated proven elements from the M 280 system generation in the new EOS M 290, but at the same time, the EOS M 290 also allows us to set new standards in Additive Manufacturing while expanding our product portfolio for metal applications and extending our innovation leadership in terms of quality management and monitoring. This new system is designed to serve the requirements of our serial-production customers. At the same time, we have also created new optimisation potential in terms of build quality for customers from the prototyping space." Despite all the innovations that have been incorporated in the EOS M 290, its central processing elements have been retained: process chamber, gas stream, process parameters, etc. This ensures constant process behaviour and in turn consistent component quality beyond the EOSINT M 280 and EOS M 290.

Extensive quality management, expanded monitoring functions, EOSTATE The new EOS M 290 offers extensive monitoring functions both for the system itself and for monitoring the build process.
