EOS Opens New Plant in Maisach

EOS, a leading technology provider in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers, has expanded its production capacity and relocated its system manufacturing facilities to Maisach-Gerlinden, just west of Munich, and closer to its headquarters in Krailling. With the new facility measuring nine thousand square meters, EOS is now capable of manufacturing up to approximately a thousand systems per year. The move enables EOS to meet the growing demand for its systems, which it is now producing on an industrial scale. At the same time, its agile production processes and flexibly designed workplaces enable EOS to respond and adapt at short notice to the changing requirements of production, customers, and markets.

Nikolai Zaepernick, Senior Vice President Central Europe at EOS, adds: “We installed around one thousand systems in the first ten years of our existence as a company, this number has increased significantly, particularly during the last two years. We now have an installed base of around three thousand systems worldwide. Over the next few years we also expect to see a further significant demand for our technology. Within the scope of digital transformation, as industrial 3D printing is one of the main driving forces taking us towards the digital factory of the future.”

At EOS, the quality of its materials, processes, and systems is a top priority – particularly in markets with high quality standards such as the aerospace, medical technology, or automotive sectors, where manufacturers depend on validated systems and processes. With these points in mind, EOS supports the qualification of the technology at its customers’ premises. In turn, this helps shorten the time to market for additively manufactured products.

When a customer buys a system from EOS, factory acceptance tests (FATs) are carried out. At the new plant in Maisach, customers also have the opportunity to get involved in the acceptance tests of new systems. In addition to the machine qualification customarily performed by EOS, customers can request to have specific test jobs built of parts that they want to produce later. (Source: EOS)
