Your path to quickly entering the world of Additive Manufacturing:


Which conditions do I need to fulfill to order hardware from the Academia Program?
  • You are a recognized educational institution
  • EOS systems must be used at least 50% of the time when teaching
  • EOS systems are not used for commercial manufacturing purposes
What AM equipment will EOS provide in the Academia Program?
All offerings are for SLS systems (Selective Laser Sintering). In this process, a laser melts the polymer or metal material powder layer by layer. The “Freshman” and “Graduate” packages contain desktop polymer laser sintering systems from Sintratec. With the “Scientist” package you can choose between EOS systems for polymer or metal powders. The prices differ according to the system selected (EOS P 110, EOS P 396, EOS M 290).
What level of investment should my organization expect?
Universities can expect highly favorable conditions for all of the above-mentioned options. The investment in funding or resources for equipment, materials, and training depends on the option selected. EOS has been careful to ensure that institutions with a lower budget gain access to the technology. In addition, educators will be expected to provide feedback on the use of the equipment and promote EOS job postings.
Are there any further requirements for participating universities?
Besides your interest in Additive Manufacturing and the commitment to use the equipment in an educational or research-related topic, there are no requirements you need to fulfill in order to qualify for the Academia Program. Membership in the Academia Program is free and unconditional.
