EOS at Formnext 2017: Guiding companies on their journey to AM success


EOS, one of the world’s leading technology suppliers in the field of the industrial Additive Manufacturing, will showcase its latest and growing portfolio of Additive Manufacturing systems and software solutions, services and consulting at this year’s formnext in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 14-17, 2017.

Dr Adrian Keppler, Speaker of the Corporate Management (CEO) at EOS, stated, “The AM market is currently experiencing enormous change as it continues to develop into a mainstream market leveraging a well-established technology. As a result, our customers are changing too. AM becomes part of existing production environment and will play a key role in the digitalisation of manufacturing. Here, technology integration will be key over the coming years.”

“EOS Additive Manufacturing offers the key technology for advanced industrial production. Customers can rely on our profound and long-term experience, the largest installed system base in the market, our independence and our service and broadest consulting portfolio on the market,” he continued.


An ongoing success story

EOS states that it remains on course for continued growth. Today, it has customers in 65 countries and increased its turnover by 10% over the previous fiscal year 2015/2016 to an expected €345 million.

Over this period, EOS delivered around 450 systems global. As such the worldwide installed base of EOS systems rose to around 3,000, representing approximately 51% polymer and 49% metal technology. As such, EOS also sees continuous increase of metal applications particularly for serial applications which is also reflected in the 94 EOS M 4-series metal systems installed to-date.

The business success is also reflected in continued growth facilities worldwide. In summer 2017, EOS moved production, training and parts of warehouse, quality, training and laboratories into an additional 9,000 m2 facility in Maisach, near Krailling, Germany, to ensure a continuous expansion of its production and training capacities. On a global level, the offices in both France and Singapore also grew.

In order to reflect the business growth, EOS also continues to expand its workforce. During the last year, EOS on-boarded another 200 industry experts. As a result, EOS now employs about 1,200 people worldwide, thereof 80 Application engineers and 120 service engineers.


Guiding companies on their journey to additive success

EOS invites visitors to its formnext booth (hall 3.1, booth G50) to learn more about the transformational journey that companies go through on their road towards AM success.

Güngör Kara, Director of Global Application & Consulting, stated, “From more than three hundred consulting projects we learned that nearly all companies implementing Additive Manufacturing go through four transformational stages. With each phase of their development, companies establish more knowledge and technological maturity, but at the same time also face different challenges. We can help customers to overcome these challenges and to gain momentum on their journey to become an additive manufacturing champion.”

At its booth, EOS will introduce visitors to successful application examples and explain the four stages of a typical AM journey, which it identifies as part and application screening, designing for AM, production ramp-up and finally certification and scaling up to efficient higher volume production.
