3D-printing technology company EOS GmbH (Krailling, Germany) will showcase its growing portfolio of additive manufacturing (AM) systems, software and services at formnext in Frankfurt, Germany, on Nov. 14 to 17. The company is exhibiting in hall 3.1, booth G50.
At the event it will launch the EOS P 500, its newest polymer system. Customers benefit from maximum productivity, automation readiness and the ability to process polymer materials that require operating temperatures of up to 300° C. The system is designed to address the requirements of customers wanting to introduce mass production of high-quality polymer parts based on additive manufacturing.
“The AM market is currently experiencing enormous change, as it continues to develop into a mainstream market leveraging a well-established technology,” said Dr. Adrian Keppler, CEO of EOS. “As a result, our customers are changing, too. AM becomes part of their existing production environment and will play a key role in the digitalization of manufacturing. Here, technology integration will be key over the coming years.”
EOS continues on a growth trajectory at its global facilities serving customers in 65 countries. Turnover increased by 10% over the previous fiscal year to an expected €345 million. Over that period, the company delivered around 450 systems worldwide, expanding its installed base to around 3,000 systems, 51% of which process polymers.
In the summer of 2017, EOS moved production, training and some other parts of the business into an additional 9,000-square-meter facility in Maisach, near Krailling, Germany, to ensure continuous expansion of production and training capacity. The company also added another 200 industry experts to its staff, bringing the total number of employees to about 1,200 globally.
