Integrated 3D (i3DMFG), based in Redmond, Oregon, USA, is set to purchase twelve, four-laser EOS M 400-4 metal Additive Manufacturing machines from EOS GmbH, Krailling, Germany. Announced during the recent Rapid+TCT exhibition, the investment will grow i3D’s capacity to thirty-six EOS machines at its Redmond production facility. Delivery of a large portion of the machines is expected in 2024, and the remainder completion of deliveries is slated for 2025 and 2026.

“i3D’s strong partnership with EOS has had a demonstrable impact on our ability to serve broad customer-based needs for complex metal additive components. The combination of forward-thinking, resiliency, reliability and best-in-class technology is at the forefront of why i3D continues to expand our relationship with EOS,” stated Erin Mastroni, CEO, i3D.

Since the acquisition of an EOS M 280 in 2013, i3D has grown into a major player in metal AM, with customers in a broad spectrum of industries, such as space, medical device manufacturing, clean energy, and automotive. The company’s place in the Additive Manufacturing market is said to enable the acceleration of technological development for other customers under the umbrella of the BTX Precision brand in the aerospace and semiconductor industries. Those industries — along with the growth in rocket, satellite, and defence applications — are said to be propelling factors for both i3D’s and BTX’s growth in the high-precision manufacturing sector.

“This order is one of the largest single metal AM investments ever in North America. The fact that i3D is fully committed to EOS technology is extremely gratifying. i3D’s extraordinary team, led by Erin, has driven dynamic, ambitious growth. The reliability of EOS systems and services has been integral to their progress. There is an amazing collaborative bond between our two companies. Strong, supportive relationships at every level have helped create the path to today’s announcement,” Glynn Fletcher, EOS North America President, shared.

With four 400-watt lasers and a 400 x 400 x 400 mm build volume, the EOS M 400-4 is tailored for serial Additive Manufacturing and can accommodate the processing of a range of materials including aluminium, copper, stainless, titanium, and tool steels, among others.
