Two new DMLS machines are currently on order, an EOS M280

and one dual laser SLM280

The expansion will enhance the company’s position in fulfilling production-level parts requirements, address demand for growing conformal cooling needs, and enhance its “Center of Excellence” program with private, client-dedicated R&D Pods, the company stated.

Linear currently has six DMLS machines from EOS GmbH, and one Selective Laser Melting (SLM) machine from SLM Solutions.  The company offers Additive Manufacturing capabilities for a variety of applications including end-use parts for aerospace and automotive, conformal cooling lines for injection moulds, prototype parts, medical devices and instruments etc.
