Ideal for entry into Additive Manufacturing: reproducible parts quality, simple and efficient handling, modular design, highly cost effective

Frankfurt/Germany, Nov 17, 2015 – EOS, global technology and quality leader for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions , is presenting the EOS M 100 - a new system for Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)® - at this year's formnext in Frankfurt/Germany (Hall 3.1, booth F70). In terms of process and parts quality, the system corresponds to the market-leading EOS M 290 metal system.

Dr. Adrian Keppler, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at EOS: "The EOS M 100 system impresses with the proven DMLS quality, and is also the ideal choice for those considering an entry into additive manufacturing. With its small build volume, which is based on a round build platform with a diameter of 100 mm, the system focuses on the cost-efficient production of small quantities. For example, the system can produce approximately seventy dental crowns and bridges in three hours." And he adds: "Initially, the EOS M 100 system can process two types of materials, specifically EOS CobaltChrome SP2 (CE-certified, CE 0537) and EOS StainlessSteel 316L, depending on the specific industry application. EOS Titanium Ti64 is still in the development stage, and will be the next material to be made available for this system."

Michael Keane, Manager of Technical Process Development at pilot customer Boston Scientific, adds: "TThe EOS M100 adds to our portfolio of Metal Additive development systems and equipment. We have found the ease of material handling and component change overs very beneficial. This has the potential to decrease set up times, increase productivity, and improve operator safety and ergonomics."

Technical changes lead to high level of cost efficiency

The system features a 200 Watt fibre laser, which due to of its beam quality and performance stability ensures optimum and consistent processing conditions, resulting in reproducible parts qualities. This feature, plus a smaller laser spot with excellent detail resolution, makes it possible to produce high-quality, highly-complex and delicate components on the EOS M 100 system.

The systems build space and an efficient recoating and exposure strategy reduce non-productive time periods, which also contributes to the efficient production of smaller quantities. Due to its modular interior structure, the system can be quickly set up and dismantled. Materials can be easily replaced, and maintenance activities can be performed quickly. The periphery equipment of the system also minimises powder contact, and is aligned to an industrial production process.
