June 18, 2014

Linear Mold & Engineering, based in Livonia, Michigan, USA, has announced plans to expand its headquarters, making room for eight more DMLS machines, a dedicated training centre plus expanded finishing and tooling operations.

“This is phase 1 of the largest expansion in Linear’s eleven year history and is designed to maintain and extend Linear’s DMLS Leadership in North America,” stated John Tenbusch, President of Linear.

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.
