Augmenting growth in additive manufacturing, EOS acquires Vulcan Labs
With the acquisition, EOS North America has now formed a dedicated additive manufacturing engineering services group.
Additive manufacturingtechnology developer EOS North America (Novi, MI) has acquired Vulcan Laboratories (Vulcan Labs; Benton, TX), expanding its bench of additive manufacturing experts in powder bed fusion technology. The Vulcan Labs team members bring decades of industry experience into both EOS' technical center in Pflugerville, TX, and its Advanced Laser Materials (ALM) materials research and production facility in Temple, TX, further strengthening its ability to ensure customer success in industrial 3D printing.
With the acquisition of Vulcan Labs' team, EOS North America has now formed an entirely dedicated engineering services group, says Glynn Fletcher, president of EOS North America.
In addition to the new engineering services group, other former Vulcan Labs engineers have been charged with helping lead the further development and commercialization of the new Integra P 400 polymer 3D printer, which is designed for the production of high-quality, mid-temperature additive manufacturing applications. Launched in December 2018 and currently available only in North America, the Integra P 400 is engineered and manufactured in Texas and has already seen orders from nearly a dozen organizations.
Former Vulcan Labs CEO and industry veteran David Leigh will now serve in the role of chief operating officer at EOS North America.
