EOS introduces its EOS P 500 system for additive manufacturing (AM). The system addresses companies who want to mass produce polymer parts on an industrial scale in combination with premium part quality. The new system offers high efficiency for lowest cost-per-part, comes automation ready and can process polymer materials, which require operating temperatures of up to 300°C. With the EOS P 500 businesses receive smart and robust technology to foster a reliable, flexible and cost-effective production. 

Doubled build rate and maximized machine uptime for increased productivity 

The P 500 builds twice as quickly as the current fastest laser sintering machine by Eos thanks to a dual-laser system fusing the powder, and a new recoater. The latter applies a new layer of powder to the building platform with high speed (600mm/s) and maximum adjustability. The P 500 preheats polymer material in advance to reduce layer times. The system can also reuse all recycled powder for the next build job at higher fill rates, further increasing the efficiency of the system. 

Outsourcing process steps for faster cycles

The steps before and after the actual build process are streamlined substantially: Pre-heating of the exchangeable frame and cool-down of the used exchangeable frame (containing the manufactured part) take place outside of the EOS P 500. Additionally, switching between the exchangeable frames is extremely short – within 15 minutes after a build job is completed, a new manufacturing process can be started. In combination with rarely needed cleaning (typically 1x per week) and maintenance (typically 1x per year), the total cycle times of the EOS P 500 are improved significantly by up to 75 percent compared to former models– giving businesses a system with maximized machine uptime.
