Düsseldorf, September 17, 2019 – EOS, the world's leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, will be showcasing its range of products and solutions at the K 2019 trade fair (Oct. 16–23, 2019 in Düsseldorf/Germany), the leading trade event for the plastics and rubber industry, in hall 4, stand C25.
With its LaserProFusion technology, EOS will be presenting a revolutionary process for polymer-based additive manufacturing at the fair. The technology is designed to deliver maximum productivity with an emphasis on high-quality and is therefore ideally suited to meet the needs of mass production. It enables tool free injection molding and can even be deployed to replace injection molding in many applications, making industrial 3D printing an attractive prospect for completely new applications.
More and more companies need to keep an increasing number of spare parts in stock for many years, which ties up working capital, drives up inventory costs, and makes them dependent on a large number of suppliers. Additive manufacturing is ideal for establishing a future-proof spare parts management system, as digital production makes it possible to make spare parts on demand. The strategy helps streamline the supply chain, reduces logistics and warehousing costs, avoids over-production, and cuts manufacturing and delivery times. The savings per year are frequently in the double-digit million ranges. At the same time, components can be digitally further optimized and a digital warehouse can be established step by step.
