Additive manufacturing (AM) company EOS has developed its new EOS M 300-4 system as part of its metal 3D printing range.
The EOS M 300-4 is a Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) systems with a build volume of 300 x 300 x 400 mm. It can be used to make parts for aerospace, industry, medical, tooling and automotive.
EOS says that the printer is configurable and users can choose between different solutions: one, two or four lasers, laser configurations of 400 or 1,000 Watt, fixed or variable focus, different types of recoaters, expanded exposure strategies, part handling (manual or automated), monitoring options and three different clamping systems (3R, Delphin, Erowa). It is also possible to choose between two powder dosing options for full build jobs without refilling: bottom-up dosing to become independent of materials particle size distribution; and automated, top dosing to enable a closed loop solution. It integrates a permanent filter system to avoid the need to open the system up periodically for filter changes.
