Krailling/Germany, January 19, 2022 – EOS, constant innovator, and a leading supplier for responsible manufacturing solutions via industrial 3D printing technology, announced the launch of a new End-To-End Production Network designed to connect companies of all sizes in search for high quality serial additive manufacturing (AM) support with selected, certified EOS partners. Prototal Industries, Scandinavia’s largest and most specialized additive manufacturing company, is the first contract manufacturer to join the network.
With this EOS expands its already existing contract manufacturing network with the much-needed end-to-end production component. To become a partner in this network, companies run through a certification process where the end-to-end capabilities are the key criteria. From part design, to design optimization for AM, manufacturing capabilities, pre- and post-processing including surface treatment, to quality assurance and assembly to create high-end final parts in series.
Companies joining the new EOS network have a deep understanding of serial production requirements and have proven excellence in all production steps. As such, the enable those in search for a partner to realize serial additive manufacturing (AM) on an industrial scale and across a wide range of industries with the ability to scale further.
The first member of the EOS End-To-End Production Network is Prototal, Northern Europe’s biggest supplier in industrial 3D printing, vacuum casting, aluminium tools, and injection moulding.
The company has been an EOS customer for more than 20 years. With its longstanding AM expertise and more than 50 EOS polymer systems on-sight, Prototal offers end-to-end additive manufacturing capabilities for large scale serial production and to demanding and highly regulated industries such as aerospace, medical or automotive, to name but a few.
It is with great pride that we become the first member of the EOS End-To-End Production Network. At our various sites across Europe Prototal Industries for many years has built up the competence and the knowledge in how to additively manufacture larger series. The future looks bright for the technology in terms of even further developments in automation and more sustainable production, 3D-Printing really is a production method offering great benefits. And EOS is one of our most valuable partners
The network initially will be set up in EMEA. It will grow within the next months. Stay tuned.
