FIT AG, a German additive manufacturing specialist, has made a substantial investment in bringing 3D printing to production.

With facilities in Germany located in Lupburg, Postbauer-Heng, Feldkirchen and Eching, as well as internationally in Kronstadt / Brasov (Romania), Nagoya (Japan) and Boston, MA. FIT AG employs over 330 people.

The additive manufacturing specialist has now purchased five EOS M 400-4 systems. The machines will be used to create an industrial 3D printing factory geared towards serial production.

EOS are already leading in the integration of additive manufacturing as a core component of the smart factory of the future – one example is the Airbus Aerospace Factory in Munich. The new deal will see EOS act as a strategic partner with FIT AG as the metal 3D printers are brought into service to provide components for the automotive, medical technology and aerospace sectors.

The EOS M400-4 metal additive manufacturing system has a build volume of 400 x 400 x 400 mm and is powered by four lasers.

Week - Munich - EOS - Founder - Dr

Earlier this week, in Munich I heard more from EOS founder, Dr. Hans Langer about how his company is set to further expand the throughput of EOS 3D printers. One aspect EOS is increasing the number of lasers in their systems, Dr. Langer says a high productivity additive manufacturing platform with ten lasers is in development.

The another element of moving to production is increasing build volume. 3D Printing Industry has already seen several previews...
