Technology Readiness Level
We have over 30 years of DMLS expertise regarding the combination and interdependencies between high-quality metal powders, process parameters, and systems – the EOS Quality Triangle – means more confidence that each AM part is built with integrity and that support can be provided for various industries and applications. This unique integration of metal powders, process parameters, and systems is the key to success and makes our solutions stand out, meeting our customer's requirements.
3D printing is about quality. Consistent and reproducible part quality is essential for series production applications. Especially industries such as the aerospace, automotive, and medical sectors require tested and consistent part quality.
For more clarity and transparency, we have adapted the well-known Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) for 3D printing – again unique in the industry.
The TRL concept was developed by NASA and has since established itself in various industries. For example, Level 5 corresponds to verification of the technical solution, whereas Level 9 corresponds to full production capability with extensive statistical data. By providing valid parameters for part properties, we make your transition to additive series production faster and easier.
We also divide our materials and processes into two categories, CORE products span TRLs 3 to 5, and PREMIUM products span TRLs 7 to 9, which are ready for use in series production. One of the goals of this system is to offer new materials on the market with a clear value proposition.
Our material product categories:
→ PREMIUM products offer highly tested and validated data plus a high repeatability
→ CORE products are also tested and as they are less mature, only come with basic data
