EOS has launched the dual-laser EOS M 290-2 metal Additive Manufacturing machine. Based on the M 290 series, the new machine has been developed through the company’s AMCM group and features two 400 W lasers with full-field overlap and a 250 x 250 x 325mm build volume.

The EOS M 290-2 is compatible with existing EOS M 290 process parameter sets, and features optimised laminar gas flow to ensure the comparability of material properties. It includes a digital scanner with active cooling, up to 7.0 m/s and a process quality and material library comparable to EOS M 290 single field.

“While not always discussed publicly, many of the biggest and most widely known production applications in the history of metal AM have been underpinned by the EOS M 290,” stated Monica Smith, EOS metal product line manager. “The heritage of the EOS M 290 family of systems dates back two decades with nearly 2,000 M 290s installed globally, which speaks to the popularity of the system and makes this line of AM technology perhaps the most adopted system in the world. The new EOS M 290-2 has a lot to live up to, and we are both proud and confident about the next generation of metal AM production stories that will be written using this system.”

The new EOS M 290-2 will be offered alongside the EOS M 290 as well as the EOS M 290 1 kw, which was developed for organisations that typically leverage copper and copper alloys for applications like heat exchangers and inductors.

An early adopter of the EOS M 290-2, AMEXCI, located in Karlskoga, Sweden, piloted the new machine. Though the increased productivity of dual lasers, the company reportedly attained a 76% reduction in cost-per-part for the tested application against the original EOS M 290 build.

Johannes Karjalainen, AMEXCI Managing Director, added, “The new EOS M 290-2 is as reliable as the EOS M 290, while significantly boosting our productivity. This system is ideal for serial production, particularly for smaller components. The part quality is also best-in-class, and the integration of the Smart Fusion & OT is a game-changer and has opened doors for us to completely new customer cases and geometries.”

The EOS M 290-2 400W will be available for purchase beginning summer 2024 through EOS and its authorised partners.
