EOS, GF Machining Solutions form partnership to serve mold and die market

Krailling, Germany - Additive manufacturing solutions developer EOS has entered into a strategic cooperation with laser machining company GF Machining Solutions (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) to offer customers innovative solutions combining both companies' technologies.

The two companies have agreed to focus on the mold and die sector, and will develop exclusive solutions for mold makers—a market in which GF offers electro-discharge machining (EDM), high-speed milling, and automation technologies.

EOS' additive manufacturing technology offers these customers the possibility to generate metal inserts featuring cooling close to the surface, thus allowing for a shorter mold cooling sequence and therefore a much faster plastic injection cycle. The two companies will integrate the additive manufacturing machines into the production process of mold inserts, including the necessary software and automation link with downstream machine tools and measuring devices.
