It’s been a busy year so far for EOS, which kicked off 2017 by announcing a partnership with Audi and proceeded to undertake several additional projects, including a 3D printed robot research project and the newly released Additive Manufacturing Part Identifier. The company has also been very focused on growing its North American presence lately, and today EOS announced yet another partnership that will see its presence within one particular US company expand even further.

Incodema3D, based in Freeville, New York, is a leader in Direct Metal 3D Printing with an impressive inventory of machines that, until now, included six EOS M 280 3D printers. Now the company has added three more EOS machines: two M 290s and one M 400. With the addition of the new systems, Incodema3D’s customers will be able to take advantage of even more options to fulfill their production and prototyping needs.

“Increasing their metal AM capacity with EOS’ technology ensures Incodema3D has even more state-of-the-art production solutions to offer to their customers,” said Glynn Fletcher, President, EOS North America. “Incodema3D is full of very talented people who understand how to leverage the unique advantages of our technology. We’re proud that they’ve chosen to partner with us once again to bring the power of AM to mainstream manufacturing.”

Incodema3D has a particular focus on the aerospace industry, and while it offers plastic 3D printing services as well, it specializes in Direct Metal design and production. Its production capacity is among the largest in the metal additive manufacturing industry, and the new machines from EOS will allow for more scalable manufacturing. In addition, Incodema3D recently received EOS’ Additive Manufacturing Qualified (AMQ) accreditation.

“At Incodema3D, AM machines like the EOS M 290 and the EOS M 400 enable us to provide our customers next-gen AM technology today for their production needs,” said Sean Whittaker, president and CEO, Incodema3D. “With our stable of EOS machines, we’re able to serve as the most reliable, comprehensive and cost-effective contract production partner in the industry. We can also scale production from small engagements to massive jobs. As we continue to grow our additive capabilities, we’re actively exploring building on our fleet of EOS M 2 series machines with additional EOS M 400 machines.”

That’s not the only news from EOS, however – the company has also announced that it has joined the 3MF Consortium as a founding member. EOS now joins the ranks of several other prominent companies from the 3D printing industry who are working together to develop a universal file format for 3D printing, eliminating the problems caused by the disconnect between advancing 3D printers and outdated file formats.

“The EOS Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions allow manufacturers to shift from traditional tool-based, static manufacturing techniques to generative, flexible, more efficient industrial 3D printing methods,” said Martin Steuer, Business Development Manager at EOS.  “The 3MF 3D file format plays an important role in AM by helping to improve the efficiency and productivity of AM solutions while eliminating the issues found with older file formats.”
