3D printing specialist EOS has acquired powder bed fusion (PBF) start up Vulcan Labs from Stratasys.

Vulcan Labs engineers will help develop EOS’ Integra P 400 polymer 3D printer which was launched in December 2018 and currently available only in North America, while Vulcan Labs CEO David Leigh, will serve in the role of chief operating officer at EOS North America.

‘The time is perfect to join EOS and Vulcan Labs,’ said Leigh. ‘Industrial 3D printing is still relatively new, but it has moved from the theoretical to the practical. As organizations wrestle to integrate AM into their production chain, industry-leading experts like EOS are what will make the difference between struggle or success.’
