GPI Prototype announces addition of EOSINT M 280 Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) Machine

GPI Prototype announced that it has completed the installation of an EOSINT M 280 machine from EOS.  The EOSINT M 280 is an updated version of the EOSINT M 270 currently being used at GPI to build metal parts additively.  The addition of a second machine establishes GPI as a leader in rapid prototyping and expands their DMLS material selection to include aluminum and titanium.

GPI is committed to showcasing their additive technology at industry events and informing customers of the benefits and cost savings of additive manufacturing vs traditional machining. On September 14th-15th, 2011 at the ODT Conference & Exhibition in Fort Wayne, Indiana, GPI will be showcasing parts made via DMLS at booth #803.  GPI will also be exhibiting at Design & Manufacturing Midwest on September 20-22, 2011 in Chicago, IL at booth 2234.  GPI has established a foothold in a variety of markets including medical, aerospace, automotive & consumer products.

DMLS offers many advantages vs traditional tooling including the ability to manufacture complex geometries and shapes not possible with CNC machining. Conformal cooling channels can also be integrated into designs to dramatically reduce injection molding cycle/lead times and lower costs.  GPI offers 8 material choices for DMLS including Stainless Steel, Cobalt Chrome, Maraging Steel, Bronze Alloy, Titanium Alloy, Aluminum & Nickel Alloy.  Parts can be built in 20 micron layers with a turnaround time of a few days.

Top-quality, accurate, clean prototypes can be built in hours and shipped to the customer in a few days.

Additional services include Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), 3D Printing (3DP), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV), Investment Casting, Tooling, CNC Machining, Finishing & Painting, Laser Scanning & Packaging solutions.  These services are priced very competitively in the industry while providing the best in quality and customer service.
