EOS e-Manufacturing News Edition 16/2014


Issue 16/2014


We just launched a new material– EOS StainlessSteel 316L, opening up even more possibilities for innovative watch. jewellery and medical applications. And, in a recent case study, you’ll discover how Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB benefits from EOS technology: besides a significant time reduction for repairing burner tips Siemens is able to quickly bring old burner versions to the latest standards of technology.

In addition, we have expanded our services portfolio for you – providing you with an overall technology solution.

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

Enjoy reading!

Full Thrust Ahead: Siemens Experiences Innovation for Maintenance of High Performance Industrial Gas Turbines
Swedish-based company, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB (SIT), manufactures gas turbines for power generation in industrial and oil and gas applications. The performance spectrum of these turbines ranges between 15 and 60 MW. Besides construction, the Siemens subsidiary also provides long-term service and maintenance for these engineering masterpieces. In an effort to help reduce maintenance costs, Siemens is currently working with the development and implementation of Additive Manufacturing technology, utilising EOS technology and equipment. The current application points out that the time required for the repair process by burner tips could be reduced by more than 90 percent.More

EOS Expands Service Portfolio
EOS is expanding our industry-leading service portfolio to actively support you in implementing and applying EOS technology.
Application Consulting
Technology entrants usually lack experience to tap the technology’s full potential from the very beginning. But this knowledge can be transferred because EOS offers extensive advisory services ranging from the product idea up to the final part. You can take advantage of consulting services from part design to data preparation, to the building process and post processing. Furthermore, EOS also offers support for the preparation of investment decisions. In order to analyze the potential benefits of Additive Manufacturing, this includes the identification of parts suitable for this technology and the performance of feasibility studies.
Quality ManagementMany users with high quality standards must fulfill the certification and documentation requirements of authorities. EOS offers support for internal validation processes. For example, customer-supervised Factory Acceptance Testing - such as Installation Qualification –provides you with extensive documentation, an overview of the elements that impact quality, and the know-how to then apply these for your own quality assurance. The process is thereby accelerated, tying up less resources, and as a result, becomes more cost-efficient to implement.
Furthermore, we have expanded our technical services and introduced a remote service.

Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel for the Watch and Jewellery Industry as well as Medical Applications
EOS StainlessSteel 316L, an iron-based alloy, is corrosion resistant and offers high ductility.
This type of stainless steel is well established in the watch and jewellery industry and can now be processed with EOS technology, allowing you to take advantage of the high degree of flexibility. A key benefit is the possibility of reducing raw material consumption. In addition, structures can be built to specifically include cavities, resulting in reduced cost and lighter weight construction.
As the material is bio-compatible it can also be used in the medical industry for implants or surgical tools.More
