Additive manufacturing specialist EOS is celebrating 30 years since the company was founded in 1989 by Dr Hans Langer.
Today, the German family-owned enterprise has an installed base of nearly 3500 industrial 3D-printing systems. While the early phase of EOS was dominated by stereolithography, since 1997 the company has concentrated exclusively on laser sintering. This move was a far-reaching decision at the time and, as it turned out, the right strategy. The powder-bed based laser sintering process is particularly well suited to today’s rapidly growing market of series applications.
