Additive manufacturer EOS enters three-year technical partnership with Williams

Dec. 4, 2015
Additive manufacturing solutions developer EOS has entered a three-year technical partnership with Williams Grand Prix Engineering and Williams Advanced Engineering.

Additive manufacturing solutions developer EOS (Krailling, Germany) has entered a three-year technical partnership with Williams Grand Prix Engineering and Williams Advanced Engineering (Grove, Oxfordshire, England). The partnership aims to provide Williams with direct and high-level insights into the latest additive manufacturing technologies offered by EOS to complement their existing manufacturing processes and to support their own additive manufacturing development project. At the same time, both companies will jointly demonstrate additive manufacturing within the Formula One auto racing world.

Williams already owns EOS's alumide and carbonmide systems. Alumide is predominantly used to create stable parts for functional testing, ranging from engine ancillaries and complete gearbox assemblies for mockups to jigs and fixtures for laminate production. Carbonmide at Williams is being used for production parts on Formula One cars in conjunction with carbon-composite laminates where improved strength is required.

As part of the agreement, Williams installed a EOSINT P 760 modular plastic additive manufacturing system from EOS that offers a large building volume of 700 × 380 × 580mm for polymer parts.
