EOS Adds Materials to Metal Portfolio
EOS has expanded its metal material portfolio, adding one new Premium and seven Core products for its M 290, M 300-4 and M 400-4 additive manufacturing (AM) systems.

“EOS introduced Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) in 2019 for materials and processes to classify technological maturity levels for easy customer orientation,” says, Hanna Pirkkalainen, EOS product manager of metal materials, differentiating between the Core and Premium products. “Depending on specific application requirements, customers can choose between core materials (TRL 3 and 5) with a major focus on early market access to new materials, and premium materials (TRL 7-9), which attach particular importance to repeatable part quality so essential in serial production.”

Bilsing Adds Laser Metal Deposition Repair Services for Aero Components and Stamping Dies
Bilsing Automation, Attendorn, Germany, has added laser metal deposition (LMD), an AM process also known as laser cladding, to its service offerings from its facility in Turkey, which holds several aviation-industry certifications. The facility can apply the LMD process for the repair of aviation components such as landing-gear bearing rings, as well as automotive stamping and casting dies.

Virtual Conference Features Three-Part Series on Design for Metal AM
We have a great lineup of speakers slated for the 3D Metal Printing Experience and Tech Tour, scheduled for July 21-23.   Sign up to attend by July 5 to save on registration. Agenda topics include a methodology for identifying suitable parts for metal AM; use of metal AM in the medical field; and a three-part series on design for metal AM.  The Design for Metal AM course covers:
  • The basic steps the AM workflow and the design decisions that impact the cost, quality, and build time;
  • The technical and economic challenges of reproducing an existing part with AM will be discussed along with design strategies to overcome the restrictive aspects inherent in metal AM processes; and
  • The use of design to realize novel and innovate AM solutions using tools such as generative design, topology optimization, and lattice structures.
