    Industrial 3D Printing

    Be Competitive With
    Additive Manufacturing

    In Terms of Cost, Innovation and Adaptability

What Counts for Manufacturing Organizations?

While always keeping an eye on costs, manufacturers need to convince their customers by improving the customizability of new products. At the same time, they need to adapt quickly to market fluctuations to survive into the future. Additive manufacturing, also known as industrial 3D printing, is an extra business strategy that can help to tackle these challenges.
 

Combining additive manufacturing with traditional manufacturing can solve many of the market’s demands.
 
Even in the future, some parts will still require conventional technologies to manufacture millions of units. At the same time, modern manufacturers need to handle more than just large production series. There are multiple challenges:

04_customization

How can customized parts be manufactured at optimal cost? How does this fit with series production?

03_cost_reduction

How do you prevent the costs of manufacturing and storing spare parts from soaring?

05_incr_productivity

How can you accelerate product development and prototyping to stay competitive?

06_design_freedom

How can you imagine completely new products, beyond tools or wax patterns?

Industrial 3D printing is the answer to these and other production optimization questions. Whether as an integrated solution built into existing manufacturing infrastructure or a first venture into rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing helps to save costs, promote innovation and prepare businesses for the future.
We've been using EOS technology for more than eight years with exclusively positive results. When applied correctly, the design flexibility offers significant benefits that can give our customers advantages unrivaled in the marketplace.

With laser sintering we can inexpensively produce, explore and further develop multiple iterations of a part. Traditional plastics processes would be far too expensive and time consuming in this case.

The Advantages at a Glance How Industrial 3D Printing Scores Points

Less material use, reduced energy consumption: lightweight components
Lightweight designs are becoming increasingly attractive across a variety of sectors, as reduced material usage lowers the costs per part and lighter parts decrease the weight and therefore often the energy consumption of their applications.

Experience innovation: complex and bionic structures
Extremely complex geometries, organic surface structures, cavities and undercuts: with 3D printing technology, products can be completely reimagined and a range of diverse structures can be integrated into the same part. 

Reduce assembly costs, better use of space: functional integration
Industrial 3D printing allows you to manufacture highly complex structures that are both lightweight and stable at the same time. Intelligent functional integration can drastically reduce the number of parts, make better use of the available space and significantly reduce assembly costs.

Production on demand: individual products, spare parts and much more
No tools, no molds – industrial 3D printing offers customization opportunities for needs-based production by simply adapting the CAD data. Medium series production at volumes of up to 100,000/month are also easily achievable.
