Additive Minds - EOS expands consulting and knowledge transfer

The Additive Minds team at EOS

EOS GmbH, headquartered in Krailling, Germany, has expanded its consulting and knowledge transfer services to form an ‘Additive Minds’ division. Incorporating the company’s Consulting, Innovation Centre and Additive Minds Academy, a team of experts from EOS will aim to directly educate staff in order to help more companies benefit from Additive Manufacturing technology.

EOS stated that although many global technology corporations have realised the potential of industrial 3D printing and are strategically investing in the area, to succeed these enterprises must go beyond just developing new applications. There is a need for faster help for customers during additive transformation.

“Our Additive Minds services cover the customer’s complete lifecycle – from Additive Manufacturing fundamentals and the choice of correct component or application, to the engineering process and development of the application, right down to planning the industrial production, qualification and validation,” stated Güngör Kara, Director Global Application and Consulting at EOS.

As a catalyst in development projects, advisors for strategic questions or technological experts, the Additive Manufacturing Consultants address each customer’s individual requirements. The range of topics on offer covers the complete cycle: from technology fundamentals, component choice for AM production, design and AM compatible engineering, to production scaling and validation. This means that customers can enlist Additive Minds at every step of their 3D printing journey.

“The huge innovation potential of this technology makes a key contribution to the current and future transformation process in industrial manufacturing. Based on our technology and extended consulting and training offers, customers can achieve the next level of innovation sooner,” added Kara.

With its Additive Minds Innovation Centre, EOS extends its range of services in the field of counselling and creates a central hub of innovation. Companies can send a team of engineers and technicians to EOS with experts from Additive Minds overseeing their education and development for 6-18 months, with the potential to develop new applications through to a production stage. At the end of this phase, the team can begin production in their own company immediately, thus gaining a huge time advantage over their own competition. A Center of Excellence model, deployed on the customer’s premises, is also available.

The Additive Minds Academy will soon offer Additive Manufacturing courses and workshops. EOS has also developed its own training programme in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton, UK, and the SRH Hochschule Berlin, Germany. Participants can qualify as an AM Application Engineer within six months through intensive learning modules and practical exercises. The first participants will begin their course in February 2017.
