EOS has introduced what it calls modular AM consulting services, which can be continually extended and are aligned to the decision or implementation phase the customer is in with relation to AM technology.

For example, for a company exploring the technology for the first time, services might include training related to build process workflow, examples of optimum component design and strategies for future use of AM. Companies that have already decided to introduce the technology on a broad scale can get support with optimizing supply chains and conceiving joint development projects for materials, process and products.

EOS offers a variety of AM systems, including the newer EOS M 400 for industrial series production, a platform-based model that can be used in research, development and series production of large metal parts. Offering a build volume of 400 × 400 × 400 mm and a 1,000-W laser, the modular, extendable system is said to increase process stability and productivity.
