EOS has launched its EOS M 300-4 system which is part of the broader, modular metal 3D printing platform EOS M 300 for digital industrial additive manufacturing (AM) production and the company’s portfolio of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) systems.

The EOS M 300 series is an automation-ready, future-proof platform that is said to be configurable, scalable and secure. It comes with a build volume of 300 × 300 × 400 mm and serves a variety of manufacturing fields, including aerospace, industry, medical, tooling and automotive.

Depending on system configuration, users can choose between one, two or four lasers; multi-power laser configurations of 400 or 1,000 W; fixed or variable focus; different types of recoaters; expanded exposure strategies; manual or automated part handling; monitoring options; and three different clamping systems. Two powder dosing options are also offered for full-build jobs without refilling; bottom-up dosing supports independence from materials particle size distribution, while automated top dosing enables a closed-loop solution.

The system will be compatible with the EOS Shared Modules in which manual or automated peripheral modules and transport logistics supply several EOS metal AM systems. As a result, all set-up, unpacking, transportation and sieving actions can be carried out independent of, and parallel to, the AM build process.
