At the same time as signing the agreement with EOS, the company purchased its first M400-4, EOS’s biggest metal AM system. It is also said to be planning to invest in several industrial AM machines for installation in its factory.

Kim Seong-soo, Z3DFAB CEO, commented, “3D printing is already in use for mass production among global energy, aerospace and automobile companies… This agreement between EOS and Z3DFAB is a great chance to provide more optimised 3D printing solutions for customers and promote the benefit of 3D printing in the market.”

Jack Wu, Sales Director, EOS APAC, stated, “China succeeded in developing the 3D printing market, and has become the largest 3D printing market in Asia thanks to its cooperation with service providers like Z3DFAB. The role of service provider is highly important to drive the market regardless of country, so we chose Z3DFAB as the most adequate player for this, as they already provided several industrial AM solutions. EOS and Z3DFAB will collaborate to develop Korean market via various industrial AM solutions.”
