EOS Announces 3D Printing Training Program

announced a new 3D printing training course, collaborating with two leading universities in the UK and Germany.

For this six monthAdditive Manufacturing Application Engineerprogramme, EOS will work directly with theUniversity of Wolverhampton, a long-standing partner of EOS with an existing high-level metal AM expertise especially in automotive, Formula 1 and aerospace andSRH Hochschule Berlin, one of the leading private universities in Germany, specializing in international business administration and management.

One of the major barriers for metal Additive Manufacturing technology is the shortage of AM application engineering experts at a global level. The programme aims to empower the future generation of AM engineers through specialized training and expertise. With this initiative, we also want our customers to turn this AM knowledge into a competitive advantage. They will save time and money, as well as boosting their business productivity with industrial 3D printing. comments Gngör Kara, Director Global Application & Consulting at EOS.

The first participants will start their expert training programme in May 2017, with a maximum number of eight participants per course.

Until recently, an application engineer would need up to two years experience to acquire adequate AM knowledge. This programme is designed to reduce the learning curve to six months, and lower the general threshold that companies are facing when implementing Additive Manufacturing technology. The programme will also substantially reduce the investment risk for entering AM production. Based on the trained workforce, a customer is now able to bring innovative AM metal applications to their industries as well as introducing both radical innovations and serial manufacturing more rapidly.

In close cooperation with both universities, the course offers a mix of intense theoretical and practical learning blocks at the partner universities, at EOS and in-house with the customer. After a period of six months, participants receive their AM Application Engineer certification.

Understanding AM (at EOS and in-house): Participants are being introduced to the fundamentals of Additive manufacturing, including the definition and development of the right applications for the use of this technology

Improve knowledge and technical AM competence (at the University of Wolverhampton and in-house): during the next four months, participants will improve their know-how in process development (e.g. defining parameters, supports), material characteristics (e.g. metallurgy, powder, density, post processing), quality assurance (destructive and non-destructive testing, CT-Scanning etc.) and how to leverage the freedom of designing for AM

Implement AM (at SRH): during the last week of this educational programme, participants will attend strategy courses focusing on how to implement AM in the organization, how to generate and communicate AM business models and how this will all affect internal value chains.

Gngör Kara concludes: The programme is giving engineers the technical expertise to master AM more efficiently. As such, it supports them to develop and improve AM applications, implement serial production, optimize innovation and keep their organization well ahead of their respective competition.

This is a proven short-cut for our customers – they can build new AM metal-based competencies internally. This will make the difference when it comes to introducing AM driven innovations. We believe that the industrial champions of the next decade have to build up their AM technology competencies in this decade.

Aidro redesigns and optimizes metal 3D printed hydraulics with EOS

Italy-basedAidro Hydraulicsis now manufacturing components for fluid systems on a DMLS metal 3D printer. The company previously only used FFF 3D printing to prototype the designs of its hydraulic devices.

After investing in anEOS M290metal 3D printer last November, Aidro is now 3D printing metal components on a regular basis and is evenrecruiting engineerswho specialize in additive manufacturing.

Hydraulic components have been 3D printed by companies likeAirbusandMcLaren, for their own specialist applications. However, a specialist company 3D printing hydraulic devices on demand makes wider adoption of this technology all the more possible.

The advantages of 3D printing hydraulics

Metal 3D printing holds many advantages over subtractive manufacturing techniques, including reducing material waste and cutting production times. CNC machining a metal component can take between 30 and 60 days, casting may take months, but a metal object can be 3D printed in days.

When it comes to hydraulics, where the internal design of the component can make all the difference, 3D printing is particularly useful.

Firstly, a component can be completely redesigned to minimize weight. In the case of hydraulic valves, they may be up to 60% lighter. This is especially important in automotive and aerospace engines.

Secondly, a components internal geometries can be redesigned to optimize flow and eliminate the leakage from the auxiliary drilling and plugging that is required from CNC milled hydraulics.

The additive manufacturing process at Aidro

Aidro 3D prints a range of components, including hydraulic manifolds, heat exchangers, and valve blocks. The materials used depend on the amount of pressure the component will undergo. With DMLS, Aidro can manufacture parts out of Stainless Steel (AISI316L), Aluminium (Alsi10Mg) and Inconel (718).

Hydraulic components are initially designed in CAD software and analyzed usingfinite elementmethod (FEM). They are then 3D printed with DMLS and subjected to material testing,pressure resistance measurement and dimensional control via 3D scanning. Finally, the components are CNC milled and heat treated.

Speaking toHydraulics & Pneumaticsmagazine, Aidro Managing Director Alberto Tacconelli said,

Because of its ability to build internal features and passageways, additive manufacturing is well suited for the design and manufacture of manifolds.

Our internal channels of the valve block (shown on page 12) are optimized for greater flow within a smaller space, Tacconelli added. Furthermore, the potential for leaks is eliminated because auxiliary drillings (hole plugs) are not needed.

Audi and EOS announce 3D printing partnership

Additive Minds by EOS will support Audi with systems, processes and knowledge building.

Audi has entered a development partnership with high-end additive manufacturing company EOS.

The partnership will see EOS help the car manufacturer implement industrial additive manufacturing (AM) printing technology and support the development of a corresponding 3D printing centre in Ingolstadt, Germany, where Audi is based.

Gngr Kara, director of global application and consulting, said: The aim is to not only supply Audi with the right additive systems and processes but to also support them during applications development, when building up internal AM knowledge and training their engineers to become in-house AM experts.

Audi already works closely with EOS and industrial 3D printing has been applied to equipment and prototype building at Audi. The company has also set up its own competence centre for 3D printing in order to gain experience with the materials and the process, and to further develop them for series production.

The car manufacturer said that 3D printing can revolutionise the process of tool manufacturing and will be able to create much more complex geometry and assemblies that are not possible with conventional manufacturing methods.

Jrg Spindler, head of toolmaking at Audi, said: A close cooperation with AM solution providers such as EOS, who can support innovation in technology development, is essential for these aims. With this technology, we are able to integrate internal structures and functions in tools that we have not been able to create so far with conventional manufacturing methods. Especially with components in small batches, we can now produce components using lightweight construction, quickly and economically based on this technology.

Audi will also focus on the production of inserts for die casting molds and hot working segments. The company said it can positively influence the process of series production by conformal cooling, producing parts and vehicle components more cost-effectively. This is made possible by using complex, additively manufactured cooling channels, which are tailored to the component and could not be implemented conventionally before. Specifically, the optimised cooling performance leads to a reduction of the cycle time by 20%, which reduces the energy consumption and cost efficiency of the components.

Dr. Stefan Bindl, team manager at the Innovation Centre at the EOS consulting division Additive Minds, said: The close cooperation concerning application and process development as well as internal knowledge building makes a significant contribution, which is why Audi can quickly achieve substantial effects for their own business by applying our technology.

Elon Musk Makes 3-D Printing History

In an act of true technological achievement, the SpaceX CEO unveiled the worlds first fully 3-D printed rocket engine.

Wearing his hat as CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk unveiledthe future of space transportwith the Dragon V2 spacecraft on Friday. Unlike Dragon V1, which was designed to carry cargo loads to and from the International Space Station, Dragon V2 will be able to transport up to seven humans to and from the ISS, and its robust thermal protection system makes the spacecraft capable of lunar missions, paving the way for interplanetary human travel.

Dragon V2 includes significant upgrades never before seen on a human spacecraft, including the addition of eight specially designed SuperDraco rocket engines capable of producing up to 120,000 pounds of combined axial thrust, which can be used during any stage of the ascent to carry astronauts to safety in the event of an emergency and land with helicopter-like precision. As an added benefit, the SuperDraco engines will also eliminate the need for parachutes when reentering earths gravitational field. Retrieving a spacecraft that landed somewhere in the ocean will become a thing of the past when Dragon V2 it starts shuttling humans to and from the ISS in late 2016.

In an act of true technological achievement, the SuperDraco engines were made entirely with a 3-D printer out of an extremely durable metal superalloy called Inconel and will be the first 3-D printed rocket engine to ever experience flight. Below youll find the relevant video segment during the Dragon V2 unveil, where Musk talks about the SuperDraco.

A match made in heavenOn a high level, 3-D printing is a layer-by-layer additive manufacturing process that excels at creating complicated designs because it eliminates the need for expensive tooling and its associated waste. The drawback of using a repetitive layer-by-layer manufacturing process is thatits slow as molasses, making it currently impractical for large-scale manufacturing runs. Where 3-D printing really shines is with lower volume, or one-off manufacturing runs where tooling isnt economical and production is limited. The SuperDraco rocket engine, of which only a relatively small amount will be produced, is theperfectapplication.

Musk believes that through 3-D printing, robust and high-performing engine parts can be created at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional manufacturing methods; and added, SpaceX is pushing the boundaries of what additive manufacturing [3-D printing] can do in the 21st century, ultimately making our vehicles more efficient, reliable and robust than ever before. What Musk is alluding to is how 3-D printing enables the SuperDraco engine to be manufactured as one finished part, which requires no assembly, increases the parts structural integrity, improves its reliability, and lowers the overall cost to manufacture. Building a SuperDraco engine wouldve been next to impossible using conventional manufacturing methods because Inconel is a very difficult super alloy to machine.

The 3-D printer behind SuperDracoBased on Elon Musks Twitter post from Sept. 5, its highly likely the unveiled SuperDraco engine was made by an EOS 3-D printer, a privately held German-based 3-D printing company that competes directly with3D Systems(NYSE:DDD)in the 3-D metal printing segment.

SpaceX SuperDraco inconel rocket chamber w regen cooling jacket emerges from EOS 3D metal itter.com/Tj284OuAk1

EOS is widely regarded for having the most capable and accurate type of 3-D metal printing technology known as direct metal laser sintering, or DMLS, which utilizes a laser to selectively heat and melt medal powder in a layer-by-layer process. For obvious concerns around safety and quality assurance, SpaceX went with the most robust 3-D printing technology on the market and pushed its boundaries.

Plenty of roomWith 3-D metal printing growth beingas strong as it has been, the market appears to be large enough for 3D Systems and other players to also carve out market share in the segment. Last year, 3D Systems purchased Phenix Systems in an effort to strengthen its 3-D metal offerings against EOS and other competitors in the space. During 3D Systems first-quarter earnings call, the company highlighted that demand for its 3-D metal printers continued to outstrip supply, despite it recently adding increased manufacturing capacity. 3D Systems metal 3-D printers have been a significant contributor to its printer orders backlog, which stood at $17.9 million at the close of the first quarter. Going forward, 3D Systems investors should expect the company to introduce a larger format metal 3-D printer by the end of the year that will better appeal to companies likeGeneralElectric– and possibly even SpaceX — with large manufacturing footprints.

It all starts from the topAs a technology, 3-D printing has often been touted as the foundation for what is referred to as the Third Industrial Revolution, promising to fundamentally change how the world manufactures anything and everything. From SpaceXs 3-D printed rocket engines, to General Electrics3-D printed jet engine fuel nozzles, 3-D metal printing for real-world manufacturing applications continues to advance at what certainly feels like an incredible pace. Although it will likely take many years until the technology expands beyond the scope of advanced manufacturing applications were seeing today, companies like SpaceX and General Electric will continue to push the boundaries of 3-D metal printing technology further, which may not only benefit 3-D metal printing suppliers like EOS and 3D Systems, but also society at large.

As she said, the Additive Manufacturing environment is so fast-paced, they are constantly learning and pushing the possibilities of 3D Printing.

Could you let us know about your background and what brought you into 3D printing in the first place?

I had the opportunity after my sophomore year at the University of Connecticut to do an internship in the Additive Manufacturing Group at Pratt & Whitney. Before my internship, I had no idea what AM was but after the first week, I knew I wanted to be a part of this industry and build my career in AM. We had an incredible, motivated team with very diverse backgrounds. I spent that summer working with and designing experiments for metal AM equipment. It just so happened that same summer that I did my internship, Pratt & Whitney opened the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center at my university. I continued on the team as a co-op and spent three days a week creating build files and running the machines on campus. I was very lucky as a student to have access to state-of-the-art equipment and also to have a supervisor who encouraged me to experiment with and test the technology.

Have you followed a course about 3D Printing during your studies?

While we didnt have any formal courses on 3D Printing at my university, I was able to do independent study research using the machines at the AM Innovation Center. Most of the work that I did was on design features for AM.

What was your very first experience with 3D Printing?

The summer that I worked at Pratt & Whitney was my first experience with 3D Printing. I was working with some of the newest technology, machines that were the first of their kind on the east coast. I was able in that summer to create build files and see my parts in just a few days. I was immediately hooked on the industry.

Could you explain furthermore what your company is and the services that you are providing?

EOS is the worlds leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers. At Additive Minds, the consulting unit of EOS,weenable our customers to produce innovative and high-quality products based on industrial 3D printing technologies. In particular, what my team is focused on is walking step-by-step alongside our customers throughout the whole AM process chain, from selecting the right parts, to re-design, and implementing serial production.In addition we have a mission to develop and grow theAdditive Mindsmentality which is why I developed our Expert Program.

Could you describe your work at EOS?

I focus on applied process consulting.My main role is to support our customers in optimizing processes on metal AM machines.I use my knowledge of our EOS systems in order to help customers develop parameters for their innovative applications. Our customers range from brand new users to experienced experts. Sometimes the work is on the fundamentals of editing parameters and inspiring customers about the possibilities of where they can go with AM. Other times it is helping them develop more efficient parameters for serial production or evaluating a new material powder to be built using our machines.

To what industries belong the customers you give training to?

My customers come from all industries, automotive, aerospace, medical, industrial, etc. I really enjoy that about my job!I have the opportunity to see many different applications for our technology and bring my expertise into each industry.

How is the 3D printing industry in Germany today?

Strong! It is a very lively industry, lots of growth and development.

Do you have any (fun or not) story about the company or your career to share with us?

Through my role as a consultant I travel to customers all over the world.Ive led workshops in Turkey, collaborated with partners in the UK, learned how to drive a manual car on a business trip to Poland.It has been quite the adventure working in different countries and getting to experience the working environment of different cultures as well.

I also really enjoy the culture at EOS. Our HR department does a great job of seeking out individuals who really love what they do and are committed to the EOS values. The team we have is very special and like nothing I have experienced at any other company. There isnt a single person at EOS that I wouldnt grab a beer with after work.

What is the most impressive or impactful use of 3D printing youve seen so far?

Aerospace will always be cool to me (3D printed parts on satellites and rockets! In space!!). I am also amazed by the 3D printing advancements in the medical industry.

What makes the 3D printing industry particularly interesting for you:

The rate at which the 3D printing industry is growing makes it very exciting! Development is happening quickly.

AM offers complete new business models for organizations.

I think the fact that everything is new makes it particularly interesting for me as a woman. Women have the opportunity to jump in where we see a need and really lead this industry. Also since it is a new industry I dont feel like the boys club is as prevalent as in traditional manufacturing companies.

Women can shape the culture of this industry and future development of this disruptive technology.

In your opinion, how could we encourage more women to become involved with 3D Printing?

One of the biggest ways, which I think Women in 3D Printing is doing a great job in tackling, is giving young women role models in 3D printing. I was very fortunate in my previous job to have an incredible supervisor and mentor, who I continue to look up to and seek advice from (seeCaitlin Oswald, also here on WI3DP). Caitlin believed in me and she encouraged me to take on challenging project which instilled confidence in me.

Another is in changing theconversationabout engineering and showing young women that engineering is a creative field that makes a huge impact on the world. At the University of Connecticut I was a part of the Engineering Ambassadors outreach organization. Our mission was to inspire k-12 students to pursue engineering as a career through engaging presentations on engineering applications.

Lastly, put a 3D printer in front of them! For our Engineering Ambassadors presentations on 3D printing we would bring a desktop plastic FDM printer with us and let them run all day. The students were mesmerized by them. This always renewed my passion for what I do, by watching kids get so excited about the possibilities of the technology.

Another inspiring woman youd like us to interview?

Tons! I have several incredible female colleagues here at EOS, who inspire me every day and also some really great customers. At EOS in particular I would love to recommend my colleague Julia, who did her masters in Biomimetics and did her thesis on an AM heat exchanger modeled after shark gills, which I think is so cool, and also another colleague,  Laura who leads our global medical business development team and is a role model of mine. Outside of EOS I recently had the pleasure of meetinga customer of ours who is an incredible designer, manages a university innovation lab, and is also a huge advocate for increasing the number of women in the engineering field.

Thank you for reading and for sharing!

EOSTATEis an automated and intelligent multi monitoring suite that enables customers to conduct a real-time quality assurance of all production and quality relevant data. It is composed of four different monitoring tools: System, PowderBed, MeltPool and Exposure OT (optical tomography).

EOSTATE Exposure OTprovides real-time, camera-based monitoring of the additive, metal-based build process. The solution fully maps each part throughout the build process, layer by layer, regardless of its geometry and size. Developed in close collaboration with EOS strategic partner MTU Aero Engines, EOSTATE Exposure OT enables companies to significantly reduce costs for non-destructive examination in computer tomography after the build process, as potentially defective parts can be rejected at an earlier stage.

EOSTATE MeltPoolmakes it possible to transparently display the complex melting process. During the build process, the tool measures the light emissions of the melt pool by means of sensors. For this, the process light is separated from the reflected laser light using elaborate hardware. The data thus captured is additionally processed and interpreted by the software system. EOSTATE MeltPool is ideal for users who want to advance their research and process development or optimize their manufacturing methods.

EOS Develops New Metal Materials for Biocompatible 3D Printing

With 3D printing being used to create medical devices and implants, 3D printer equipment manufacturers are starting to take notice by developing specialized materials to meet this new demand.

EOSin particular is attuned to the needs of the healthcare industry and has just announced two metal materials that are biocompatible making them ideal for the development of new medical technology.

These new materials are not only applicable for medical manufacturing, but for other industries as well, such as aerospace, shipbuilding, jewelry and watchmaking. Christiane Krempl, Product Marketing Manager Metals at EOS states: A broader variety of titanium and stainless steel materials mirrors the ever changing requirements among our customers and opens up new fields of application.

The two new materials are a light titanium alloy and a stainless steel alloy. Both are corrosive resistant and biocompatible.

EOS Titanium Ti64ELI: light metal alloy corrosion resistant and biocompatible

Parts built in EOS Titanium Ti64 have a chemical composition and mechanical properties corresponding to ASTM F136. Providing a high detail resolution it can be processed on an EOSINT M 280 (400 Watt) metallaser-sinteringsystem. This light metal alloy shows an excellent corrosion resistance. Due to its biocompatibility and high grade of purity it is particularly suited for the additive manufacturing of medical implants.

EOS StainlessSteel 316L: corrosion resistant and biocompatible stainless steel

This stainless steel alloy has been optimized specifically for the processing on the EOSINT M 280 metallaser-sinteringsystem. It shows a good corrosion resistance and a high ductility. Parts built from EOS StainlessSteel 316L have a chemical composition corresponding to ASTM F138 (Standard Specification for Wrought18Cr-14Ni-2.5MoStainless Steel Bar and Wire for Surgical Implants UNS S31673). In the medical industry, this alloy is particularly suited for surgical instruments, for endoscopic surgery, orthopedics and implants.

The material is also a good choice for use in the watch and jewelry industry, where the designer benefits from extensive freedom of design. Shaping and structural restrictions as such are a thing of the past. Parts such as watch cases, thanks to defined hollow spaces, can be manufactured morecost-efficientlyand easily, at the same time saving resources. The material is also well suited for additive manufacturing applications such as spectacle frames or functional elements in yachts. In the aerospace industry, EOS StainlessSteel is a good choice for the manufacture of clamping elements or heat exchangers. Parts manufactured from that material can be mechanicallypost-processedor polished.

German partners found 3D printing cluster

UnternehmerTUM, Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship and EOS collaborate in Munich.

Unternehmer-TUM is taking action to stimulate new business.UnternehmerTUM, theStrascheg Center for EntrepreneurshipandEOSare taking action to stimulate new business models and innovative start-ups based on the booming industrial 3D printing – also known as laser additive manufacturing – sector.

The two German R&D centers have just founded a 3D Printing Cluster together with EOS, a leading 3D additive manufacturer. Their objective is to create an interdisciplinary network of actors from all over Germany.

Many political leaders, analysts and economists have in recent years said that 3D printing is going to change the world by bringing about a new industrial revolution. For example, in his State of the Union address in 2013, Barack Obama stressed the major relevance of 3D printing to society. He said he sees it as a potential means of withdrawing industrial production processes from low-wage countries and relocating them back home (so-called reshoring).

In Germany, the importance of 3D printing technologies has also been recognized. The 3D Printing Cluster, which was set up by businesses and start-up centers in Munich, is working to advance applications in this field and intends to build up a strong network of interdisciplinary actors. The Cluster recently commented that it intends to bring together innovation drivers from science, established companies, and start-ups, to enable them to take advantage of the disruptive possibilities of the 3D printing technology for business and society.

Dr. Helmut Schönberger, CEO of UnternehmerTUM said, Scientists at theTechnical University Munichhave been researching 3D printing techniques and innovative applications, which have already led to the formation of outstanding company start-ups. UnternehmerTUM hopes that the activities of this Cluster will help to encourage more growth-oriented start-ups in this field.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Sailer, CEO of SCE, said Additive manufacturing gives us a chance to redefine market accessibility and business models. Solutions will be made available more quickly and cheaply, allowing us to alleviate such urgent social problems as those encountered in public health and disaster management. The value of team work, which our innovative research already emphasizes, will only increase with this technology.

Nikolai Zaepernick, Head of Strategy and Business Development at EOS added, Start-ups that focus their attention on applications based on the industrial 3D printing production technology from EOS are important partners for us when it comes to subsequent market development activities.

EOS has been supporting start-up business for several years already. These include companies such asShapeways, who have developed into a successful player in the field of additive production in only a few years. These companies are quick to learn and employ our innovative technology in creating sustainable products with a high degree of customer benefit.

They are continually redefining limits and repeatedly push us to new peaks of performance. Within the 3D Printing Cluster, we are able to identify the most promising start-ups very quickly. At the same time, we can support them in the most suitable way with what they need very urgently for their continued development while taking their first tentative steps on the market.

The future-oriented Cluster is dedicated to the field of additive production at several levels. Their main areas of activity are as follows:

(1) Start-up supportThe idea here is that the network will support the initiation of new entrepreneurial projects and develop them into eventual business start-ups. The Entrepreneurship Centres and EOS along with other members of the network will support these teams as they grow into what will hopefully be promising activities.

Manhattan project: 3D manufacturing has diverse applications.(2) Training and continuing educationA focal point of cluster activities will be the growth of training opportunities. In a variety of training courses and seminars, trainees, students and skilled workers will learn how to operate the new tools and gradually familiarize themselves with the possibilities of this versatile technology.

TechShop, the new prototype workshop, will also be giving its own courses, beginning in 2015. In addition, the new infrastructure will allow course participants to realize their own projects, thus giving them a chance to learn from each others experiences.

(3) Communication and networkingEvents such as the annual Cluster meetings and regular pitch sessions, in which innovators and start-ups present their projects, will serve to strengthen the network. It is planned to open marketplaces too in which know-how such as material databases can be exchanged, resources and production capacities shared and new standards discussed and defined.

For Additive Manufacturing Application Engineer program, EOS will work directly with the University of Wolverhampton, a long-standing partner of EOS with an existing high-level metal AM expertise especially in automotive, Formula 1 and aerospace and SRH Hochschule Berlin, one of the leading private universities in Germany, specializing in international business administration and management.

This program is designed to reduce the learning curve to six months, and lower the general threshold that companies are facing when implementing Additive Manufacturing technology. The program will also substantially reduce the investment risk for entering AM production.

In close cooperation with both universities, the course offers a mix of intense theoretical and practical learning blocks at the partner universities, at EOS and in-house with the customer. After a period of six months, participants receive their AM Application Engineer certification.

EOS to Share Metal 3D Printing Patents Under License Agreement

Globaladditive manufacturing companyEOS will license a number of its patents to Dutch 3D metal printing equipment producer Additive Industries following a recent contract.

Though the agreement licenses a select number of patents forAdditive Industries use, the company could gain the use of more patents over the next few years. Further details pertaining to the agreement is not being shared.

In a press release announcing the patent license agreement, Additive Industries said that both companies are very confident in the benefits 3D metal printing presents to high-end industrial markets as it pertains to series production of parts. From the perspective of just the company, Additive Industries CEO Daan Kersten said that the partnership will help it to take3D metal printingfrom the lab to fab.

Together we can expand this new production technology from the prototyping domain to the factories of the future, he added.

We welcome the patent license agreement with Additive Industries as it confirms the attractiveness of the AM process for industrial use, said Mike Shellabear, director IP and technical support at EOS. In addition to this, the agreement is in line with EOS strategy to license our IP to other companies in this industry.

EOS promotes 3D printing at dental show

Production stages for additively manufactured removable partial dentures. Left to right: dental prosthesis with support structures after AM; with support structures removed; and after completion.

Compared to the conventional approaches that have been used up to now to produce removable partial dentures, clear competitive advantages can be achieved using AM, said Martin Bullemer, business development manager medical atEOS.

Digitally manufactured partial dentures have been tested with pilot customers. The feedback has been very positive, encouraging us to continue to develop and optimise the application.

During a pilot phase, dental laboratory Flussfisch GmbH in produced partial dentures based on direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology from EOS. Digitally manufactured dental prostheses have consistent tolerances and quality as well as reproducible properties and at the same time are very accurate, allowing a good fit., said Michaela Flussfisch, MD of Flussfisch GmbH.

EOS metal system EOSINT M 270 Dental is used for manufacturing of removable partial dentures using CE-certified material EOS CobaltChrome RPD.

During the additive manufacturing process, the fine powder particles ensure a fine-grain structure so that a digitally produced dental prosthesis has much higher strength and fatigue resistance than a casting. Additionally, the risk of a clamp breakage is reduced compared to a conventional cast model, EOS says. The finished products comply with the relevant standards EN 1641 and EN ISO 22674.

EOS is also presenting the smaller EOS M 100 system for the first time at IDS. The system provides the dental industry with an entry-level AM system based on metal technology. With its small build volume and 100 mm diameter circular platform, dental laboratories can now manufacture high quality crowns and bridges from EOS CobaltChrome SP2. The system is equipped with a 200 watt fibre laser and has high power stability as well as constant processing conditions to produce better components.
