Expertise related to the project
With decades of experience in additive manufacturing, EOS has developed an innovative optical system that allows for high power laser beam shaping. In metal 3D printing, beam shaping enables higher control of the so called “melt pool”. The melt pool is the region where laser and material interact with each other and form the solidified part. It is believed that the melt pool can be manipulated by beam shaping in such ways, that more sustainable 3D printing with higher productivity can be achieved. EOS will supply the project with these optical modules and install them in EOS M290 additive manufacturing systems and will also lead the development of new beam shaping strategies. These strategies will combine the requirements of specific 3D printed parts with the new processing possibilities and thus allow for most efficient printing. EOS will support the development of the planned AI inline monitoring system and assist in demonstrating the four industrial use cases on the advanced InShaPe additive manufacturing system.
