The Additive Minds Academy, EOS education provider for the Additive Manufacturing industry, has released its EOS M 290 Basic Training Extended Reality (xR) app. This is intended to allow new and existing employees to quickly train on systems from anywhere, learning how to operate the systems and software and gain the skills to advise customers and stakeholders via an augmented reality experience.

The EOS M 290 Basic Learning app – together with the Blended Learning Paths – is said to have drastically reduced employee on-boarding times from several months to four to six weeks. It is thought that this will have the ability to replace on-site training for onboarding, as well as the training and development of existing employees on new machines.

“Especially for newcomers, it is important to build up know-how quickly. EOS is committed to offering the best learning experience – with state-of-the-art learning methods that are engaging and fun to use, smart and available anytime, anywhere,” stated Volker Kunze, Manager, AM Academy. “The app can reduce operator training to just two or three days, at the same time decoupling training from machine availability on-site. As such, a company can use the waiting time effectively by starting training before the new system arrives.”

Choong Yue Hao, Lead Development Engineer – Additive Manufacturing at the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre, shared his experience: “The EOS M 290 app has been jointly developed with EOS Singapore to support the ‘Additive Manufacturing Master Class’ that our trainers are providing as a team. It allows us to engage better with a larger group of trainees on the training content without additionally having to be mindful about their personal safety. The augmented reality functions enable trainees to have realistic interactions with a life-like 3D printer model. Every trainee is thus able to fully focus on the actual learning content of EOS M 290 operation in a comfortable classroom environment at his or her own pace.”

The app, compatible with Apple and Android, is now available from the Additive Minds Academy Store.
