Starting from 3D CAD models, additive manufacturing, which includes 3D printing, uses lasers to form an object by fusing powdered materials layer by layer. This process can create very complex objects, in some cases even with built-in functions. There are various types of 3D printing technologies. In the FDM process, ABS or PLA plastic filament is melted in the print head and applied to the printer bed by an extruder. At EOS our printers rely on the 3D printing technologies SLS and DMLS, which work with powdered polymers or metals and metal alloys.
Our large plastic 3D printers score with broad material variety, cost efficiency and intuitive operation. The EOS P 770 even offers the possibility to print parts with a length up to 1 meter.
