EOS to demonstrate its Shared Modules solution for AM at Formnext 2019

November 13, 2019

EOS GmbH, headquartered in Krailling, Germany, will demonstrate its EOS Shared Modules periphery solution for integrated Additive Manufacturing with systems of the EOS M 400 series at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, from November 19–22.

The company states that the various modules plus transport systems and control centre software enable users to implement equipping, unpacking, transporting and sieving activities parallel to the AM build process. A manual and automated EOS Shared Modules set-up are reportedly available for this purpose.

This modularity is said to give companies flexibility to configure their production scenarios, as the EOS Shared Modules components are not set up as a combined unit, but individually, and thus are available for multiple AM systems simultaneously. The company’s EOSCONNECT ControlCenter software provides users with a continuous flow of key production parameters and seamless part traceability by means of a digital twin. The company states that this results in significantly increased efficiency, particularly in series manufacturing.

EOS will also exhibit a range of materials at Formnext, including EOS ToolSteel H13, which the company says is the only H13 tool steel suitable for additively manufactured robust tools. As well as EOS CopperAlloy CuCrZr and EOS Copper Cu that, on account of their varying conductivities, have a large number of possible applications, specifically in electronics.
