A young Dutch startup with a strong reputation in the medical sector, Xilloc is out to prove that ambition, skill, and state-of-the-art equipment are more important than their number of years in business. Having just turned four years old, Xilloc, working with Brightlands Chemelot Campus and with the financial support of the Province of Limburg, has opened an industrial business unit that aims to provide high quality 3D printing services within the aerospace, automotive and tooling industries. To enhance their 3D printing capabilities, the company has invested in four industrial 3D printers from EOS, including the EOS M 400, one of the largest metal machines currently available on the market. Based on a modular concept, the EOS M 400 has a massive 400x400x400mm building chamber and a laser performance of up to 1,000 watts that can work on various materials. Xilloc takes pride in delivering the highest quality to its customers. Therefore we choose to work with the systems from EOS, said Maikel Beerens, CEO of Xilloc in a press release.

We previously covered Xilloc in 2011, when they assisted with the first 3D printed full mandible replacement, and again earlier this year, when they began 3D printing and selling customized bone structures intended for surgical implants. They are also known for offering industrial 3D printing services in all printable materials, including metals, polymers and ceramics. With this new development, Xilloc is making yet another inroad in the European industrial 3D printing market.

The Brightlands Chemelot Campus, located near Maastricht in the Netherlands, is a world-leading innovation location that is quickly becoming a hub for 3D printing in the Netherlands and abroad. Earlier this year, they established the Brightlands Materials Center which, together with two Dutch universities, offers PhD research programs focused on materials development for 3D print technologies. In addition to offereing state-of-the-art R&D and manufacturing infrastructures, education, and business development services, the Brightlands Chemelot Campus has lent 1600 m² of workspace to Xilloc and their endeavor. Since having moved their operations to the Campus, the company has gained ample room and support to continue its rapid expansion.
