ARC Group Worldwide announced that 3D Material Technologies (3DMT), its additive manufacturing division, has purchased two EOS EOSINT M280 Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) 3D printers.
According to a press release on Power Metallurgy Review, the machines have a build size of 9.85 x 9.85 x 12.8 inches. This increases 3DMT’s ability to manufacture parts from stainless steel, maraging steel, cobalt chrome, titanium and aluminum. Both EOS printers include an upgraded 400 W laser; its benefits include improved surface finishes, higher build speeds and increased spectrum of uses.
“EOS laser-sintering is a leading technology for aerospace and medical components, which make the 3D printers a strategic fit for our existing business. 3DMT provides engineering, prototyping, and short run production services in order to accelerate our customer’s ability to access their respective markets as quickly and efficiently as possible,” said Ashley Nichols, general manager of 3DMT.
