Addaero adds direct-metal laser sintering to its capabilities
Addaero Manufacturing has added two direct-metal laser sintering machines from EOS.
Additive manufacturing services provider Addaero Manufacturing (New Britain, CT) has invested in direct-metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology, adding two EOS M 290 machines from EOS (Krailling, Germany).
EOS M 290 technology is used for serial production in industries such as aerospace that have small- to medium-size, highly complex parts, explains Andrew Snow, senior vice president of EOS North America (Novi, MI). The company's DMLS process can work with most alloys, so both prototype and production parts can be made from the same material, he says.
