May 19, 2016

Dr Hans J Langer, founder and CEO of EOS GmbH, received the SME Additive Manufacturing Industry Achievement Award at this year’s RAPID 2016 show in Orlando, Florida, USA. The award is presented to individuals who have made significant accomplishments that greatly impact the Additive Manufacturing industry.

EOS Founder Dr Hans J Langer receives SME Additive Manufacturing Industry Achievement Award at RAPID 2016“RAPID is the authoritative industrial 3D-manufacturing event of the year,” stated Glynn Fletcher, President of EOS North America. “This SME award is a reflection of both Hans Langer’s innovative spirit and the growth and technological advancements his company has made over the past 27 years.”

Langer founded EOS in 1989 and today is the major shareholder. Before founding EOS, he worked at the Max-Planck-Institute for plasma physics and received his Ph. D. with a thesis on laser technology from Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich.

EOS’ latest advancements in AM include the compact M 100 metal system and its EOSTATE MeltPool Monitoring technology. The latter is an automated, intelligent, real-time process that provides part traceability as well as surveillance and analysis of the melt pool during the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS®) process, helping minimise risk and reduce quality assurance costs.
