EOS e-Manufacturing News Edition 14/2013


Issue 14/2013

Additive Manufacturing (AM) allows economical production of components in smaller series or special models right down to a batch size of one. This flexibility is demanded, for example, by mechanical and plant engineering because a large number of unique parts are used in these fields. A case study from one of our customers showcases the benefits of EOS technology for this industry.

As promised, this edition, as well as the next one, will feature Part Property Management (PPM). Today we highlight the solution which is preferred by our rapid prototyping customers, universities and research institutions.

As always, our calendar of events shows you dates of upcoming shows and events were EOS will be exhibiting and where we look forward to your visit.

Enjoy reading!

Yours sincerely,
The EOS e-Manufacturing Newsletter Team


Integrated functions: When compressed air flows into a flexible membrane the claws of the gripper will open; likewise the system closes when the compressed air is turned off (Source: Kuhn-Stoff).

Bronchial Gripper with functional base plate made lightweight and durable with EOS technology
The hand is one of the defining stepping stones of human evolution: with its thumb opposing the other fingers, the human hand is an ideal tool for gripping, exploring, and working. As such, it is the key to cultural activity and technical progress. Industry often exploits this ingenious principle: one of the processes for which machines are used is the automated gripping of almost any desired part for transporting to the next operational step.
Thanks to the optimized design with integrated pneumatic ducts, the handling system which was developed by our partner Kuhn-Stoff GmbH & Co KG for Wittmann Robot Systeme GmbH, in Nuremberg, is significantly lighter, but excels in demanding, continuous use. More…
