The M 280 direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) 3D printers have a build size of 250 x 250 x 325 mm (9.85 x 9.85 x 12.8 inches) and will make it easier for3DMT  to manufacture parts out of stainless steel, maraging steel (MS1 material, tool steel), cobalt chrome, titanium, and aluminium.

"EOS laser-sintering is a leading technology for aerospace and medical components, which make the 3D printers a strategic fit for our existing business,” said Ashley Nichols, general manager of 3DMT. “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." 

"Currently, the aerospace and medical industries are the strongest and fastest growing verticals for EOS laser-sintering solutions with DMLS parts in flight and 510K FDA-approved implants in the human body,” said Andy Snow, director, EOS North America. “We are excited to add 3DMT to our list of innovative customers acting as a service provider as we join to push design-driven manufacturing into the market.”

3DMT now owns 16 industrial 3D metal and plastic printers, either in operation or on order.
