EOS and AMFG tackle machine connectivity in new partnership

EOS 3D printer customers can now benefit from AMFG's workflow software tools

Through a newly established partnership, industrial 3D printing company EOS and AM software developer AMFG are aiming to improve connectivity across the additive manufacturing workflow. Through the collaboration, AMFG’s MES software for 3D printing will be integrated with EOS machines to enable direct streaming and improved machine control.

In other words, this means that EOS clients will be able to leverage AMFG’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to further automate their workflow as well as to connect directly with their EOS 3D printers. Ultimately, the partners aim to facilitate AM workflows to push adoption and industrialization ahead.

“EOS has always been at the forefront of technological developments in additive manufacturing,” said Mirco Schöpf, Product Line Manager Connectivity & Automation Software at EOS. “We strive to work with partners who share our vision of innovation for additive manufacturing. Our collaboration with AMFG will help our customers continue to unlock the full benefits of our technologies.”

Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG, added: “EOS is a global leader when it comes to 3D printing technologies and we’re thrilled to collaborate with such an esteemed partner. Our partnership not only makes machine control a reality, but it is also a major step towards establishing AM operations that are automated and scalable.”

By using AMFG’s workflow software with EOS 3D printers, customers will be able to easily prepare print jobs, find the right part orientation for a given print and more. The software also slices the builds and sends the print data directly to the connected EOS 3D printer. In the near future, AMFG says users will also have the ability to monitor and receive machine data in real time.

The companies have announced their partnership in the lead up to Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, where they will each be presenting their 3D printing product offerings.
