3d printing company EOS says that it 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. The new facility, which measures 9,000 m2, will make it possible to manufacture up to 1,000 systems per year, EOS says. 

‘Industrial 3D printing has arrived in manufacturing,’ said Nikolai Zaepernick, senior vice president central europe at EOS. ‘We installed around 1,000 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 3,000 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.’

When a customer buys a system from EOS, factory acceptance tests (FATs) are carried out and according to EOS, at the new plant in Maisach, they will also have the chance to get involved in the acceptance tests of new systems.
