EOS is pleased to announce its collaboration with Continental. With the purchase of several EOS M 290 systems, Continental is investing in industrial 3D printing as a production technology. The company is deploying the EOS systems to produce metal components in series and has also received key support from EOS in installing the systems, training employees, developing applications, and launching manufacturing capacities.
The EOS M 290 enables Continental to quickly and cost-effectively produce metal parts using additive manufacturing (AM) technology. The system is capable of reliably reproducing high quality parts and enables innovative approaches to production. To leverage the technology’s potential within the shortest possible time, apart from purchasing the systems, Continental has also collaborated extensively with EOS at other levels: EOS installed the systems at the Continental plants within only two months and subsequently helped the customer’s staff to launch its additive manufacturing capacities. The close cooperation when introducing the systems at Continental is being supplemented and continued by the comprehensive local EOS service network.
Markus Glasser, Senior Vice President Region Export at EOS said of the collaboration: “We are very proud of our joint project with Continental and look forward to supporting the customer throughout every stage of the project. In particular, the strong spirit of teamwork between our two companies was a key criterion in Continental’s decision to work together with EOS. We will also be very happy to provide Continental with any assistance it may need in other fascinating projects going forward.”
