EWI is pleased to announce the acquisition of its second EOS direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS™) system, an additive manufacturing (AM) technology with the capacity to fuse metal powder into 3D components. The newest addition to the EWI AM family is the EOS M290 DMLS System including EOSTATE MeltPool which delivers high-resolution data for process development and quality control. With the installation of the new machine, the EWI AM team is moving into a new, more expansive AM lab at its Columbus, Ohio, facility.
EWI has acquired The EOS “Parameter Editor” module, which offers developers and researchers a large and open tool set ensuring a great freedom for application-specific optimization. “EOS has a long history of quality AM equipment and continues to expand its technical product offerings," said EWI Senior Technical Advisor Curt Taylor. "The parameter editor will allow us to continue to build on our current material database through characteristics analysis of new materials.”
Chris Kiminas, President of EWI's Columbus Operations is excited about this expansion. “Not only are we continuing to invest in our L-PBF equipment capabilities in Columbus but we are retooling our AM team to improve our overall customer experience. This is a long-term investment in a growing industry and this will require exceptional execution”.
