EOS, supplier in the sector of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, announced the relocation of its system manufacturing facilities to Maisach-Gerlinden, just west of Munich, and closer to its headquarters in Krailling.
With the new facility measuring 9,000 square meters, EOS is boosting its production capacity in 2018 and is now capable of manufacturing up to approximately 1,000 systems per year. The move enables the supplier to meet the growing demand for its systems, which it is now producing on an industrial scale.
Furthermore, its agile production processes and flexibly designed workplaces enable EOS to respond and adapt at short notice to the changing requirements of production, customers, and markets.
Nikolai Zaepernick, Senior Vice President Central Europe at EOS, adds: “We installed around 1,000 systems in the first ten years of our existence as a company, this number has increased significantly, particularly during the last two years. We now have an installed base of around 3,000 systems worldwide. Over the next few years we also expect to see a further significant demand for our technology.”
When a customer buys a system from EOS, factory acceptance tests (FATs) are carried out. At the new plant in Maisach, customers also have the opportunity to get involved in the acceptance tests of new systems. In addition to the machine qualification customarily performed by EOS, customers can request to have specific test jobs built of parts that they actually want to produce at a later date.
