Dutch company Xilloc Industrial B.V. has announced further investment at its facility in Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands. Together with the Brightlands Chemelot Campus and with financial support from the Province of Limburg, four new EOS 3D printers are being installed to establish an advanced manufacturing facility, which also includes state of the art automated milling machines.

Xilloc has gained its reputation in the medical sector with the world’s first 3D printed titanium skull implant in 2006 and the first 3D printed full mandible replacement in 2011. The company offers Additive Manufacturing services in metals, polymers and ceramics and earlier this year introduced a new bone-like implant material.

The company’s industrial business unit aims to provide the same high quality 3D printing services necessary for their medical activities to companies in other sectors such as aerospace, automotive and tooling. Amongst the four new AM machines is the EOS M 400, one of the largest metal machines currently available on the market. “Xilloc takes pride in delivering the highest quality to its customers. Therefore we choose to work with the systems from EOS,” stated Maikel Beerens, CEO of Xilloc.
