Krailling, April 1, 2020 – EOS, the world's leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, today launched a versatile online platform and LinkedIn Group to support the battle against Covid-19 on all levels.
In times of crisis individuals, organizations and governments need to stand together. We want to thank the additive manufacturing community that has been working tirelessly, to find strong solutions for the fight against Corona. At EOS, we were fascinated by various activities all over the world and made it our prerogative to support in times of need. Right now, we are developing solutions and utilizing our network to facilitate inspirational exchange. We leveraged our global network of suppliers, partners, customers and the broader EOS community. This is why our open platform initiative features relevant data, impactful projects, and offers valuable files free to download – ready to print. All of these are designed to support pandemic-fighting and life-saving approaches. The 3DAgainstCorona site will be updated on a regular basis.
We know 3D printing is not accessible to everyone – especially industrial grade additive manufacturing technologies. EOS has been supporting the medical industry for many years – with certified systems, certified materials and qualified processes, expert and consulting knowledge. We globally meet the high regulation needs as well as FDA and MDR-conform standards applied to medical applications. Now EOS puts its experience and knowledge at the service of this initiative.

In order to ensure that everything we share on the landing page is safe and a valuable contribution to what we now, our global expert team screens every contribution first to ensure that it meets the high medical standards needed in a pandemic.
