With the tool EOS expands its existing comprehensive portfolio of monitoring solutions for AM by adding this high-performance online monitoring which ensures even greater transparency of the complex build process. As such, EOSTATE MeltPool targets R&D and manufacturing customers with demanding quality requirements.

Minimizing risk and reducing quality assurance costs
Reliable quality assurance tools play a decisive role in boosting trust in a new technology. The EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring allows the quality assurance to be moved from post- to in-process, not only supporting better risk management, but as well reducing time and costs for quality assurance and as a consequence overall costs per part.
