EOS To Feature New Plastic, Metal At Rapid 2008: New Materials Significantly Expand Rapid Prototyping And Manufacturing Capabilities

Novi, MI, and Krailling, Germany, May 12th, 2008: EOS GmbH, the world’s leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, will present two new commercial materials at SME’s RAPID 2008 Conference and Exposition on May 20-22, Booth #500. The materials increase the range of prototyping and manufacturing capabilities of EOS’s equipment, enabling companies to further reduce production times and costs.

The new plastic, PrimePart DC, is an impact-resistant polyamide with a tensile strength of 48 MPa. It has an outstanding elongation at break of 50 percent—that is about twice as high as those of previously available materials. The material is thus well-suited for automotive components, such as interior parts, and also for aerospace applications.

For Direct Metal Laser-Sintering (DMLS), new EOS StainlessSteel PH1 offers high hardness, very good corrosion resistance and excellent mechanical properties, matching the traits of stainless steels currently in use in the medical and aerospace industries. It complements the existing 17-4 EOS StainlessSteel GP1.

“We have seen our customers achieve remarkable innovations with EOS equipment and our existing materials,” says Peter Klink, Executive Vice President Global Sales at EOS. “Now we are proud to showcase our new plastic and metal offerings at Rapid 2008, where forward-thinking product developers who are extending the boundaries of their individual industries gather to evaluate new technologies.”

Rapid 2008 will be held at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. EOS, presenting sponsor of the show, will demonstrate its FORMIGA P 100 plastics laser-sintering equipment and the EOSINT M 270 for Direct Metal Laser-Sintering at its booth (#500). Dr Michael Shellabear, Vice President, a conference speaker at the Rapid Manufacturing session held on May 21st, will address quality requirements for industrial applications of DMLS.

Exhibiting EOS customers include Morris Technologies, Paramount PDS, JonaTek, Solid Concepts, and Synergeering.
