EOS opens in­no­va­tion cen­tre for 3D print­ing in Düs­sel­dorf

Auto components India - - COVER STORY -

EOS, the world’s lead­ing tech­nol­ogy sup­plier in the field of in­dus­trial 3D print­ing of me­tals and poly­mers, has opened EOS In­no­va­tion Cen­ter Düs­sel­dorf, in Ger­many. The cus­tomer and tech­nol­ogy cen­tre of­fers com­pa­nies re­gional sup­port for their 3D print­ing in­no­va­tion projects with a wide range of con­sult­ing and train­ing ser­vices that ad­dress key as­pects along the en­tire process chain.

Bernd Reinarz, Team Man­ager EOS In­no­va­tion Cen­ter Düs­sel­dorf said, “It can be a com­plex process to de­sign new com­po­nents for Ad­di­tive Man­u­fac­tur­ing and sub­se­quently plan and op­ti­mise the pro­duc­tion pro­cesses. The ob­jec­tive is clear, but com­pa­nies still fre­quently lack the needed ex­pe­ri­ence. The EOS team in Düs­sel­dorf com­prises ex­pe­ri­enced engi­neers and con­sul­tants that can help com­pa­nies rapidly achieve ex­cel­lent re­sults with in­dus­trial 3D print­ing – lo­cally, per­son­ally, and in­di­vid­u­ally.”

Hol­ger Rübe­same, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Man­ager at SPECS Sur­face Nano Anal­y­sis, on working to­gether with EOS said “the ex­cel­lent col­lab­o­ra­tion with the team of the EOS In­no­va­tion Cen­ter Düs­sel­dorf en­abled us to sub­stan­ti­ate the prof­itabil­ity of in­dus­trial 3D print­ing for our prod­uct port­fo­lio. Within a short time we were able to re-de­sign our com­po­nents, in­clud­ing the tar­geted de­vel­op­ment of process pa­ram­e­ters.” The In­no­va­tion Cen­ter has around 1,000 m² of floor space for in­di­vid­u­alised cus­tomer con­sul­ta­tion, in­clud­ing a large area with EOS sys­tems for in­dus­trial 3D print­ing with poly­mer and metal ma­te­ri­als. Com­pa­nies can rent ma­chin­ery space as well as project rooms. To this the EOS team at the Cen­ter of­fers both con­sul­ta­tion and train­ing cour­ses – in­clud­ing spe­cialised ad­vice on de­sign­ing and op­ti­mis­ing the parts to be man­u­fac­tured, the Ad­di­tive Man­u­fac­tur­ing process it­self, and plan­ning of pro­duc­tion.

The ex­perts in Düs­sel­dorf see them­selves as prob­lem solvers who de­velop cre­ative solutions for the chal­lenges of their cus­tomers. Close in­ter­ac­tion with the Ad­di­tive Minds con­sult­ing unit en­sures that the en­tire range of prod­ucts and ser­vices is avail­able in Düs­sel­dorf. Com­pa­nies can there­fore ex­pect and rely on skill­ful sup­port from EOS to cover all their re­quire­ments.

Apart from working to­gether with com­pa­nies, EOS plans to col­lab­o­rate closely with uni­ver­si­ties of ap­plied sciences in the re­gion with the aim of train­ing the AM spe­cial­ists of the fu­ture.

Formed in 1989, EOS is the pi­o­neer and in­no­va­tor for com­pre­hen­sive solutions in ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing. Its prod­uct port­fo­lio of EOS sys­tems, ma­te­ri­als, and process pa­ram­e­ters gives cus­tomers cru­cial com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tages in terms of prod­uct qual­ity and the long-term eco­nomic sus­tain­abil­ity of their man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses. Cus­tomers ben­e­fit from deep tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise in global ser­vice, ap­pli­ca­tions en­gi­neer­ing and con­sul­tancy.
