State Corporation Rostec has become the first Russian company to purchase an EOS M 400-4 system for the industrial Additive Manufacturing of high-quality metal components, stating that the new equipment will broaden the use of additive technologies in Russian industry.

The system, installed in Rostec’s Center for Additive Technologies in Moscow, will be used for the production of metal parts for the corporation’s aviation cluster.

“Industrial 3D printing is becoming one of the essential attributes of modern industry. We see great potential with this technology and are increasingly implementing it in our production practices. With EOS, we are cooperating with a trusted partner and an innovator for AM solutions to achieve this goal,” stated the Industrial Director of Rostec’s aviation cluster, Anatoliy Serdyukov.

The EOS M 400-4 offers a large building volume (400 х 400 х 400 mm) combined with four lasers, resulting in greater productivity. Rostec uses the system in combination with EOS Shared-Modules, a number of peripheral modules that automates material supply as well as part flow.

Rostec already uses several EOS machines, among which are the EOS M 280 system for metal and the EOS P 760 system for polymer additive manufacturing.

“We look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with Rostec and hope to further expand it in the coming years. The Corporation is the technology leader in Russia and we are proud to fully support them with our industrial 3D printing solutions and expert consultancy,” stated EOS CEO. Dr Adrian Keppler.

One of the conditions of the partnership is the engagement between Rostec and Additive Minds, the EOS consulting unit. Its experts will train Rostec staff to work with the equipment and help the Corporation to implement additive technology in manufacturing new products.
