EOS Laser-Sintering Demos on the Show Floor—and the Shop Floor—at PDx/amerimold
Activities include a Morris Technologies plant tour showcasing additive manufacturing equipment in action
Novi, MI, April 21, 2010— The largest collection of direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) systems at any manufacturer or laboratory in the world is open for touring at the PDx/amerimold show (May 11-13, Cincinnati, OH). EOS e-Manufacturing partner Morris Technologies (MTI) will kick off the show by hosting the tour from 9 a.m. to noon on May 11 at the nearby MTI plant. EOS, the leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, will also demonstrate a working EOSINT M 270 DMLS machine and exhibit laser-sintered parts at booth 319.
“This is a great opportunity to see traditional manufacturing equipment and DMLS systems running side-by-side,” says Andy Snow, Regional Sales Manager, EOS of North America. “Visitors can learn first-hand from Morris how laser-sintering fits into a job shop’s suite of processes to give customers the very best options in terms of cost, quality and lead time.”
“We saw early on the value of providing DMLS for our customers,” says Greg Morris, CEO/COO of MTI. “Over the years, demand for laser-sintering services has grown as we’ve expanded our DMLS offerings and as more companies get acquainted with additive manufacturing. We see that strong growth trend continuing.”
Morris Technologies was the first U.S. firm to install DMLS equipment, in 2003. Today MTI and its sister company, Rapid Quality Manufacturing (RQM), boast nine DMLS systems, including the first North American EOSINT M 270 Extended system for processing titanium (Ti64), a nickel superalloy (NickelAlloy IN718), and an aluminum alloy (AlSi10Mg). In addition to these three, laser-sintered metals available at MTI include maraging and stainless steels, a bronze alloy, and cobalt chrome. Morris Technologies will exhibit at booth 419 during the PDx/amerimold show, where they will be joined by RQM and MicroTek Finishing, North America’s exclusive provider of the Micro Machining Process (MMP) for high-precision surface finishing. The MMP is a unique finishing technology developed by the Swiss company BESTinCLASS.
EOS was founded in 1989 and is today the world-leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems.
