nLIGHT, Inc., a provider of high-power semiconductor and fiber lasers, and 3D printer manufacturer EOS, signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to pursue a joint strategic technology cooperation.

The cooperation between nLIGHT and EOS includes the implementation of a series of complementary laser-based technologies to optimize the AM light engine for robust industrial 3D printing production. nLIGHT and EOS plan to make beam shaping and light engine optimization capabilities available digitally, enabling customers to access different beam profiles via EOS software to activate higher productivity printing.

The teams and technologies at nLIGHT and EOS are highly complementary; we are excited to build on the early success with AMCM to integrate our laser technologies into the wider EOS portfolio,” said Scott Keeney, CEO of nLIGHT.

AMCM, an EOS Group company focused on customized AM solutions, has already made the programmable AFX laser available in its metal AM systems. The LOI between nLIGHT and EOS represents an evolution of this relationship.

“The flexibility and performance gains of nLIGHT’s beam shaping and laser technologies give us an unprecedented advancement in metal AM systems and will allow our customers to unleash a new level of productivity,” Marie Langer, CEO of EOS states.

nLIGHT and EOS plan to make the AFX-enabled machines available to customers in late-2024.
