EOS, one of the world’s leading technologies supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers has unveiled FORMIGA P 110 Velocis for Industrial 3D printing. The new system is a redefinition of the company’s FORMIGA P 110 for additive manufacturing (AM) with plastic materials.
The machines of the FORMIGA family are among the company’s most successful and reliable industrial 3D printers for polymer materials on the market. More than 550 plus systems from this family of machines have been installed worldwide.
The new additive manufacturing system comes with new technical improvements and offers increased productivity of up to 20 percent. Right from rapid prototyping applications to cost-efficient small series production, the new Velocis is a compact-class additive manufacturing system, which makes it ideal for entry into the area of industrial 3D printing.
The new Velocis also features an accelerated heating and re-coating process and an improved temperature distribution in the build chamber. These features further optimise the process of additive manufacturing. In addition, it is also equipped with an improved heating system and software control which makes it easier to preheat polymer materials at a faster rate.
Similar to its predecessor FORMIGA systems, the new Velocis is suited for companies looking for industrial 3D printing solutions. The new system offers reliable and greatest reproducible part quality in the market of layer manufacturing technologies.
The FORMIGA does not require tools and makes direct use of digital CAD data to produce delicate polymer parts with highest surface quality to a maximum construction height of 330 mm. Users can profit from a broad range of currently 10 polymer materials.
Speaking about the newly launched product, Moritz Kugler, Product Manager at EOS said, “The systems of the FORMIGA family have always been distinguished by reliability and productivity. At the same time, the running costs are reduced by being confined to the materials and electricity used – no auxiliary materials are needed, keeping operating costs calculably low.”
“It is precisely for these reasons that our existing customers appreciate this product series. With the FORMIGA P 110 Velocis, we have refined one of our most successful FORMIGA models. Particularly in combination with the EOS consulting portfolio, even newcomers can quickly build up know-how and experience and start with industrial 3D printing,” added Kugler.
“It is important for companies to consider 3D printing now and not succumb to any false awe of the technology. Because it is possible to produce parts in very high and reliable quality, even with an affordable entry into additive manufacturing. And with EOS, companies have a partner at their side with great experience and all the necessary competencies for AM serial production,” concluded Kugler.
