Additive Manufacturing refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a component in layers by depositing material. The term "3D printing" is increasingly used as a synonym for Additive Manufacturing. However, the latter is more accurate in that it describes a professional production technique which is clearly distinguished from conventional methods of material removal.
Like no other company, EOS is mastering the interaction of laser and powder material. Additionally, EOS provides all essential elements for industrial 3D printing. System, material and process parameters are intelligently harmonized to ensure a reliable high quality of parts and thus facilitating a decisive competitive edge.

The Additive Manufacturing of plastic products can make use of polyamides (PA), polystyrenes (PS), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), and polyaryletherketones (PAEK). EOS provides a comprehensive range of materials for the Additive Manufacturing process. Customized products can be manufactured to the highest quality.
Additive manufacturing overcomes the limits imposed by conventional production techniques. It is already benefiting companies in a wide range of sectors.
Engine and turbine parts as well as cabin interior components are typical applications for industrial 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing (AM. This is where the benefits of innovative EOS technology come to the fore: functional components with complex geometries and defined aerodynamic properties can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively. Material and weight savings lower fuel consumption and CO² emissions. Manufacturer-specific adaptations and small production runs are further arguments in favor of additive manufacturing (AM) technology. This is why leading aerospace companies have integrated EOS additive manufacturing into their production strategies.
Innovative, tool-less EOS additive manufacturing provides a new approach to tackling the current challenges facing the automotive industry. It offers maximum design freedom while allowing the creation of complex yet light components with high levels of rigidity.
Additive Manufacturing enables the production of components with integrated functionality - without the need for tools, thereby cutting development and production costs. What is more, suppliers can respond to customer requirements by offering individualized serial production of parts.
Sustainable energy efficiency, constant cost pressures, special-purpose parts in short-run productions, unrelenting deadline pressures – industrial companies are confronted with many challenges. The production of small runs, however, can scarcely be cost effective with conventional, tool-based methods. Moreover, responding quickly to a changed part geometry just before the start of production involves a lot of work and costs. This can jeopardize delivery to schedule, for instance, at parts suppliers.
Every person is unique. Therefore, optimal patient care in dentistry, orthopedics and implantology requires medical products that provide a perfect fit. There is a high demand for one-off components and components produced in small production runs whose materials and manufacturing standards have to fulfil extremely stringent quality requirements. This also applies to specialized surgical instruments and medical devices. In addition, these products must be made available quickly and cost-effectively.
In many industries, the production of specialist tools us one of the most expensive aspects of the production processes. It is generally expensive, time consuming and very technically demanding to use conventional processes. EOS has the solution: Based on Additive Manufacturing, EOS enables single parts or individualized serial products to be manufactured quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly – even in small batch sizes.
