EOS North America, a division of EOS GmbH, has announced its plans to open an AM Innovation Center in the Los Angeles/Long Beach area of southern California, USA. The new regional centre is part of the company’s over $15 million investment to support its burgeoning aerospace, space, medical and consumer goods markets.

The new West Coast Innovation Center is intended to support EOS’s customers through a team of application engineers and service technicians, and other customer support resources. The location will serve as a hub featuring some of EOS’ latest metal and polymer Additive Manufacturing technology, including customised machines from EOS company AMCM and pre-release systems & software.

“The SoCal area is a hotbed for several flourishing industries that rely on our technology for their 3D printed applications,” stated Glynn Fletcher, president EOS North America. “We recognise the importance of working very closely with these key customers and will now be positioned right on their doorstep.”

Customer training and education, application development, benchmark builds, and production strategy are all said to be critical components of building successful AM programmes and will be the focus of the new EOS Innovation Center.

“We have one goal: Help our customers be successful in additive manufacturing,” added Dr Gregory Hayes, senior vice president of applied engineering, EOS North America. “Innovation does not come from technology alone – it comes from learning how to successfully apply it. The new LA-area facility brings all the necessary elements into the region making it easier to help our customers achieve their goals and grow their AM programmes.”

EOS is said to have identified a suitable location and anticipates an early autumn 2022 opening.
