UK debut of entry-level metal additive manufacturing machine
EOS will present its extensive and growing portfolio of machines, peripheral equipment, software and certified powder materials for producing metal and polymer components at MACH 2016 (Hall 4, Stand 4861).
EOS M 100 metal AM system
Ideal for companies considering their first use of additive manufacturing, the new, modular M 100 DMLS (direct metal laser sintering) machine from EOS offers reproducible parts quality. It is due to the optimum and consistent processing conditions ensured by the high quality and stability of its 200 W fibre laser beam. Moreover, the small spot size with excellent detail resolution enables highly complex and delicate components to be manufactured.
Real-time, automatic process monitoring during AM of metal parts
An add-on to the EOS M 290 DMLS system, EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring is an innovative, powerful tool that paves the way for complete parts traceability as well as automated surveillance and analysis of the melt pool during the build process for every spot on every layer on every part.
New metal powder
In addition, EOS will introduce a new metal powder to the market, EOS StainlessSteel CX, for mould and tool manufacture. The material is an extremely corrosion-resistant stainless steel with maximum stability and excellent hardness. It is ideally suited to the manufacture of injection mould tools that are used to make medical products or products made of corrosive plastics.
