EOS’ new 3D printer manufacturing facility spans 9,000 square meters and reportedly has the capacity to produce up to 1,000 EOS additive manufacturing systems per year. The increase in production will enable EOS to better meet demands for its industrial 3D printers.

“Industrial 3D printing has arrived in manufacturing,” commented Nikolai Zaepernick, EOS Senior Vice President Central Europe. “We installed around 1,000 systems in the first ten years of our existence as a company. This number has increased significantly, particularly during the last two years.”

“We now have an installed base of around 3,000 systems worldwide,” he added. “Over the next few years we also expect to see a further significant demand for our technology. Within the scope of digital transformation, as industrial 3D printing is one of the main driving forces taking us towards the digital factory of the future.”

On the other side of the globe, EOS is also expanding its operations. The company says it is increasing its presence in Japan, Singapore, and China, through partnerships and team expansions. In line with this, the German company also recently made strategic changes to its Asia-Pacific leadership..

“Our APAC customers are gradually transforming their businesses for the fourth industrial revolution and we want to help accelerate that process by contributing more to their AM strategy and production,” commented Terrence Oh, Senior Vice President (Asia-Pacific) at EOS.

“We also want to be there at every stage of the journey, from helping them set up their in-house AM capabilities to enabling them to deliver high quality products within a shorter time span or having eco-friendly spare parts produced.”

On the materials front, EOS and its subsidiary ALM recently introduced three new industrial 3D printing materials.
