With their investment in the EOS M 400-4, i3D’s stable of direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) machines now stands at seven, including an EOS M 280, and five EOS M 290s. i3D is the first AM service provider in western North America to purchase the high-throughput EOS M 400-4, enabling the organization to meet market demand and bring large-frame metal 3D printing capabilities to complement their existing technology.
“The EOS M 400-4 is for serious 3D printing at a serial production level. i3D now has a very impressive DMLS line-up that makes them a formidable player in the market,” said Andrew Snow, senior vice president of EOS North America. “Their strengths go deeper than the technology and their talented team brings know-how to drive results for their customers. We couldn’t be happier for i3D – another great example of bringing AM to mainstream manufacturing.”
i3D connects organizations of any size with the power of cost effective 3D metal production, bringing AM scalability to the market.
“3D metal printing is no longer future technology, it is now and our customers are moving at a rapid pace to take advantage of what true AM brings,” said Erin Stone, CEO of i3D. “Just a few years ago, scalability was a question the AM industry needed to answer. With platforms as robust as the EOS M 400-4, we have a solid tool to address those concerns and we’re delivering both capacity and quality to industries that demand highly engineered parts, such as aerospace, energy and medical.”
