EOS, Siemens intensify additive manufacturing cooperation
3D printing technology supplier EOS GmbH and technology group Siemens will extend and expand their already close collaboration to accelerate additive manufacturing (AM) technology and application.

The planned collaboration includes the areas software, automation and drive technology and use of AM technology: Siemens control and drive components are part of the new EOS M 300 series for metal additive manufacturing. EOS' job and process management software Eosprint 2 now integrates into AM module of Siemens NX 12. In addition, Siemens will include an EOS P 500 system for polymer industrial 3D printing into its Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in Erlangen, Germany

EOS expands its portfolio of proven systems for metal additive manufacturing with the EOS M 300 series. This solution is an automation-ready platform that is configurable, scalable, and secure. For this, EOS also trusts in control and drive components from the Siemens comprehensive Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) portfolio.

With EOS as a strategic partner in industrial 3D printing, Siemens has not only equipped the EOS M 300 series with components, but also the EOS P 500 system for polymer 3D printing on an industrial scale, as showcased first time at last years' formnext fair.

Eosprint 2 is an open CAM tool that allows businesses to optimize CAD data for EOS systems. Siemens NX 12 is a seamless end to end solution starting with design, via product topology optimization and process simulation to print preparation with one consistent user interface. Now, an Eosprint driver for the Siemens NX12 AM module is available. Thus, Eosprint 2 functions are seamlessly integrated into Siemens' NX Fixed Plane (Powder Bed) AM software module. This integration supports Siemens overall additive manufacturing solution offering, which helps to deliver an integrated and associatively linked additive manufacturing process from design to advanced 3D printing with EOS systems. As a result, engineers benefit from a quick and uninterrupted path from product idea to 3D printed part.

Siemens is going to extend its Additive Manufacturing Experience Center (AMEC) in Erlangen, Germany, with the industrial-scale EOS P 500 system. The AMEC provides an overview and insight into
