Unbeatable Networking and Flexibility Industry 4.0 with EOS 3D printing

Industry 4.0 means fully integrating industrial 3D printing into production to make production processes more flexible and efficient. With EOSCONNECT, you can take advantage of all your machine and production data in real time.

 

EOSCONNECT helps you to achieve your productivity and quality goals.

 

We offer an open interface that supports integration with intelligent EOS applications, as well as third-party applications, to increase productivity. In this way, we lay the foundations to integrate additive manufacturing effectively into industrial production environments. 

What EOSCONNECT Has to Offer Advantages at a Glance

Simple and flexible integration of 3D printing systems into existing IT environments

01

Easy IT Integration

Connection to MES and ERP Systems
Precise insights into productivity to gain competitive advantages 

02

Process Optimization

Increased Productivity
Automatically generated reports, e.g. for quality assurance 

03

Automated Quality Assurance

04

Industry 4.0 

Future-Proof Production

EOSCONNECT is a Door-Opener for Industrial Additive Manufacturing

EOS systems can be seamlessly connected to MES or ERP solutions on site, but they can also serve the digital marketplaces and IIoT platforms of the future.

Connectivity offers significant advantages, when it comes to increasing productivity: manufacturing data can be seamlessly transferred to CAQ (Computer Aided Quality) systems – for example to facilitate reliable tracking. In some cases, this can be useful to validate production processes. At the same time, the users benefit from transparency by accessing and viewing production KPIs in real time.

EOSCONNECT Modules at a Glance

EOSCONNECT
Core

EOSCONNECT Core is the connectivity solution for production monitoring. EOS systems are IIoT-capable and can be integrated into existing IT infrastructure with EOSCONNECT Core.

EOSCONNECT ControlCenter

EOSCONNECT ControlCenter allows additive manufacturing units to be operated automatically, efficiently and transparently. This ensures a stable and repeatable process with predictable costs per part.

EOSCONNECT MachinePark

With EOSCONNECT MachinePark, EOS will publish an intuitive app for displaying data in a dashboard in 2020. The app will allow complete and user-friendly monitoring.

EOSCONNECT Core Data Gateway to the EOS System

EOSCONNECT Core is the connectivity solution for monitoring production. EOS systems are IIoT-capable and can be integrated into existing IT infrastructure via EOSCONNECT Core. To do this, EOS provides an open interface that supports both integration with intelligent EOS applications to increase productivity, such as EOSCONNECT MachinePark, and use alongside third-party applications. You can choose which path to take.

EOS integration in the industrial IT landscape

During development, we followed industry standards to guarantee maximum connectivity and open up EOSCONNECT Core to established MES and ERP systems. EOSCONNECT provides process data over an OPC UA interface and allows access to all system data via a Web API – in real time.

This means that it can be flexibly and easily integrated into your production control and planning – for maximum flexibility and efficiency.

EOSCONNECT is available for the following systems:

EOSCONNECT Applications

The Future of EOSCONNECT
New Features in 2020

EOSCONNECT is constantly being expanded with new apps and services and will feature integration with third-party applications – a good basis for the digital factories of the future.

  EOSCONNECT ControlCenter – The Solution for Shared Modules

The EOSCONNECT ControlCenter software gives users access to all the key figures about the system status, parts and peripheral modules, regardless of their location. This ensures end-to-end traceability of parts, jobs and frames. This allows both data and parts to flow freely in additive manufacturing.

Shared modules are a peripheral solution for integrated and efficient additive manufacturing with systems from the EOS M 400 series. The various modules, transport logistics and control center software mean that any setting-up, unpacking, conveying and sieving can be performed independently of and in parallel to the 3D printing process.

This solution will be available in late 2020.
