The EOS M 100 direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) machine is intended for users entering additive manufacturing. With its small build volume, based on a round, 100-mm-diameter build platform, the system is designed for cost-efficient production of small quantities of parts, such as dental crowns and bridges. The machine is capable of processing EOS CobaltChrome SP2 and EOS StainlessSteel 316L. EOS Titanium Ti64 is still in the development stage, and will be the next material available for the system, the company says.

The system features a 200-W fiber laser and a smaller laser spot with good detail resolution, making it possible to produce complex and delicate components on the system. Efficient recoating and exposure reduces nonproductive time and contributes to the efficient production of smaller quantities. According to EOS, materials can be replaced easily and maintenance performed quickly. Ease of material handling and component change-overs is said to decrease setup times, increase productivity and improve operator safety.
