Volkmann, Soest, Germany, and EOS GmbH, located in Krailling, Germany, have entered into a cooperation agreement to offer a new line of Volkmann’s automated metal powder management systems. The systems are designed to seamlessly integrate with the EOS M 400 series metal Additive Manufacturing machines.
The new EOS Edition line of metal powder management systems will facilitate the transfer and loading of material from storage into one or more AM machines, capture and sieve excess powder for reprocessing, and the automated vacuum drying of metal powders. Additionally, buffer storage units and other accessories are also available with the new systems.

The EOS Edition is now available in North America through EOS North America. This edition can function as a sealed circuit, which can help eliminate metallic dust from the workplace, enabling worker safety and protecting the metal powders from ambient moisture and contamination. The system is scalable, can be operated unattended 24/7 and can be controlled & monitored remotely.
“Our new systems provide EOS end-users with a complete, plug-and-play, automated powder handling solution that can scale as their production needs increase,” stated Christian Mittman, director of advanced solutions for Volkmann. “This is a logical next step in our close relationship with EOS, and one that we feel will benefit EOS customers with faster, safer, more reliable printing and consistently high-quality printed parts.”
