EOS Celebrates 30 years: Moving Ahead With Passion for Industrial 3D Printing

KRAILLING, Germany, April 16, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  With an installed base of nearly 3,500 industrial 3D printing systems, the German family-owned enterprise EOS is the world's leading supplier of systems for additive manufacturing (AM) solutions. When founding the company on April 24, 1989, Dr. Hans J. Langer had a clear vision: producing three-dimensional objects directly from CAD data using laser technology, for what was at the time, a new rapid prototyping market.

Balancing change and constancy

While the early phase of the enterprise was still dominated by stereolithography technology, since 1997 EOS has concentrated exclusively on laser sintering. This was a far-reaching decision at that time and the right strategy, as it turned out. The powder-bed based process is particularly well suited to today's rapidly growing market of series applications.

A further success factor was that EOS was able to offer AM systems for processing both polymers and metals from an early stage, as well as the materials, processes, and software tailored to suit these systems for optimal results. In order to support companies even further in the use of AM technology, EOS founded its consulting unit Additive Minds in 2015. With 300+ successful customer projects, the 100+ Additive Minds experts are among the most successful AM consultants globally.

Shaping the future of manufacturing

The potential applications for 3D printing are unlimited as it is capable of producing flexible, light, and stable parts that only use as much raw material as needed to manufacture the product. EOS' technology and know-how are accordingly used in a variety of industries and areas of life: Whether fuel-saving components in the aviation sector, spare parts on demand for buses and trains, or prostheses individually created to suit each patient.

Dr. Adrian Keppler, CEO of EOS shared: "The establishment of complete digital production platforms is a major goal that we are aiming to achieve in the coming years. It's not just about providing the right 3D printing solutions, but about evaluating, planning, setting-up, and optimizing AM production cells to leverage all the advantages and possibilities of digitalization."
