Ideal for entry into Additive Manufacturing: reproducible parts quality, simple and efficient handling, modular design, highly cost effective
EOS, global technology and quality leader for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, recently introduced the EOS M 100 - a new system for Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)®. 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. 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."
Technical changes lead to high level of cost efficiency
The system features a 200 Watt fibre laser, which due to 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. 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.
