Unlock the potential of your metal 3D printed applications

With a subscription-based license model, EOS Plans offer a flat rate of validated and ready-to-use processes, including powerful hatching algorithms for first-time-right exposure, as well as an automatic in-situ process control for reduced supports and increased productivity. Take control of your machine park, offering deep insight into machine-generated data for improved machine utilization. 

Overview of the EOS Softwaresuite

Software Highlights

EOS Build/Build+ 

Available per facility, EOS Build delivers the key features of EOSPRINT (and, especially in Build+, some key enhancements) as a subscription. Multiple users (up to 3 in Build or 10 in Build+) can optimize process parameters and manage material usage with greater latitude than ever before.  

EOS Smart Monitoring* 

EOS Smart Monitoring uses Exposure OT to make build monitoring and analysis more thorough and cost-effective — but doubles down on the cutting edge with Smart Fusion. This automated power adjustment tool operates in close conjunction with EOS Build/Build+ to ensure heat never exceeds standards established in the parameter set.

EOS Data Insights 

Data Insights offers unparalleled insights into machine performance — either individually or as a whole park of devices. As a web-based subscription platform, it's available on-premises or via the cloud, with a UI optimized for desktop and mobile devices. 

Software Integration - EOS APIs

At EOS, we believe, that the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) and its industrialization are strongly influenced by the availability of open software interfaces. Therefore we offer a wide range of integrations into our EOS Solutions.

Material Management and Post Processing

Material Management

Different Degrees of Automation Based on Your Needs

The EOS material management system enables you to convey and sieve your metal materials. To meet every customer requirement, the systems have different degrees of automation, are suitable for both small and large volumes of material and can also be flexibly integrated into your production environment, regardless of which EOS metal system you choose.

In addition, we offer 3rd party solutions that are optimized for usage with EOS machines like the Volkmann PowTrex, vLoader, and HUB - EOS Editions.

 

Post-Processing:
The Finishing Touches For Your Parts 

Post-processing is needed in industrial metal 3D printing to remove supports from your applications, smooth rough edges and bring a polished look to your completed part. There are many different methods of post-processing for metal 3D printing, here are a few that are commonly used:  

  • Media blasting with sand, grit, and ceramic beads  
  • Shot peening  
  • Vibratory finishing/ barrel finishing
