EOS delivers 1000th industrial 3D printing machine

Dec. 7, 2021
The milestone 3D printing machine was installed at Sintavia in North American market.

EOS (Krailling, Germany), a technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing for metals and polymers, has delivered and installed an AMCM M 4K from EOS AMCM business unit. This large scale, four-laser, high-productivity system was sold to metal additive manufacturer Sintavia (Davie, FL), where it will be focused on the production of advanced propulsion systems for the aerospace, defense, and space industries. Unique to this machine is its ability to 3D print applications up to 1 m high.

Brian Neff, CEO of Sintavia says, “While this AMCM M4K represents the 1000th machine in North America for EOS, it also represents the 17th EOS machine for Sintavia. Their machines form the foundation of our company’s manufacturing technology, and we are thrilled to be part of this milestone achievement in EOS’ history.

“This achievement is a significant milestone in the history of EOS and a testament to the accelerating adoption of additive manufacturing in North America, said Andrew Snow, senior vice president of EOS North America. “We remain the leading innovator of hardware, materials, services, and education aimed at strengthening the successful adoption and advancement of additive manufacturing as a mainstream manufacturing process.

EOS was founded in April 1989 in Gräfelfing, Germany. Since then a global expansion, established a presence in Italy, the United Kingdom and Finland, founding its North American headquarters in Novi, MI, in 2001. Today, EOS North America also has its technical center in Pflugerville, TX, and its materials engineering and production center at Advanced Laser Materials (ALM) in Temple, TX.

Since its founding, the company has continually innovated, collaborated, and worked to advance the capabilities of additive manufacturing, leading to its current, robust ecosystem of products and services. Its experience and end-to-end offerings of products, services, and training are designed to support organizations at each step of their additive manufacturing journey, from start to part.
