EOS launches EOS M 290 metal system to succeed popular EOSINT M 280

June 9, 2014

EOS has recently introduced its new EOS M 290 system for the Additive Manufacturing of metal components. The new system, which will replace the established EOSINT M 280 machine, offers tool-free manufacturing of high-quality metal serial components, spare parts and functional prototypes.

“EOS has incorporated proven elements from the M 280 system generation in the new EOS M 290, but at the same time, the EOS M 290 also allows us to set new standards in Additive Manufacturing while expanding our product portfolio for metal applications and extending our innovation leadership in terms of quality management and monitoring,” stated Dr Adrian Keppler, CMO at EOS.

“This new system is designed to serve the requirements of our serial production customers. At the same time, we have also created new optimisation potential in terms of build quality for customers from the prototyping space,” added Keppler.

Despite all the innovations that have been incorporated in the EOS M 290, its central processing elements have been retained: process chamber, gas stream, process parameters, etc. This ensures constant process behaviour and in turn consistent component quality beyond the EOSINT M 280 and EOS M 290.

The new EOS M 290 offers extensive monitoring functions both for the system itself and for monitoring the build process, states EOS. This adds even more extensive quality assurance to the field of AM. In particular, it makes the system attractive for industrial applications in the aerospace industry as well for medical applications.

The system is equipped with a 400 Watt laser and can be operated under an inert (nitrogen) atmosphere or under argon, permitting the processing of a wide range of materials. These include light alloys, stainless and tool-grade steels and superalloys.
