EOS and Siemens partner to integrate EOS M 300 series

September 12, 2018 - EOS, a technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, and the global technology company Siemens announced the continuation of their collaboration to accelerate additive manufacturing (AM) technology and application. The current cooperation 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
  • 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 systems for metal additive manufacturing with the EOS M 300 series. The solution is an automation-ready, future-proof platform that is configurable, scalable, and secure. For this, EOS also trusts in control and drive components from the Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) portfolio.

With EOS as a strategic partner in the field of industrial 3D printing Siemens has equipped the EOS M 300 series with components, and 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 an end to end solution starting with design, via topology optimization and process simulation to print preparation in one user interface. Now, an EOSPRINT driver for the Siemens NX12 AM module is available. Thus, EOSPRINT 2 functions are 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 a 3D printing with EOS systems.

Siemens is going to extend its Additive Manufacturing Experience Center (AMEC) in Erlangen, Germany, with the EOS P 500 system. The AMEC provides an overview and insight into different industrial AM technologies and information about the challenging industrial requirements for AM-design, simulation and production. It also offers an interactive experience, where the integrated AM chain and the AM relevant products of Siemens are shown.
