The EOS M 290 has a building volume of 250 x 250 x 325 mm and 400 W fibre laser

EOS GmbH, Krailling, Germany, states that it has sold several EOS M 290 systems to Continental AG,  Hanover, Germany. Continental is said to be investing in industrial Additive Manufacturing as a production technology and will employ the EOS systems for the series production of metal additively manufactured parts.

Continental also employed EOS to install the systems at its plants and assist Continental staff with the machines’ launch. The two companies stated that they will continue to cooperate closely through the EOS service network.

Markus Glasser, Senior Vice President Region Export at EOS, stated, “We are very proud of our joint project with Continental and look forward to supporting the customer throughout every stage of the project.”

“In particular, the strong spirit of teamwork between our two companies was a key criterion in Continental’s decision to work together with EOS. We will also be very happy to provide Continental with any assistance it may need in other fascinating projects going forward,” he concluded.
