Plastics laser sintering transitions from rapid prototyping to rapid manufacturing

FKM has purchased an EOSINT P 800 for laser sintering high-temperature thermoplastics for customers in aerospace and medical industries

FKM has purchased an EOSINT P 800 for laser sintering high-temperature thermoplastics for customers in aerospace and medical industries. FKM has now increased its machine park to a total of 14 laser sintering systems for processing plastic, metal, and sand. The new machine can process EOS' high-performance polymer PEEK HP3.

On the decision to purchase this system, Jurgen Blocher, managing director at FKM, said "We were motivated to purchase another machine from EOS for a variety of reasons: in our opinion, laser sintering is today one of the key technologies in the area of e-Manufacturing. It enables the manufacture of durable and close-to-production functional models."
