EOS P 396 is a system for additive manufacturing from polymer materials (PA).
Additive manufacturing is a comprehensive term for all processes for the fast and cost-effective production of models, samples, prototypes, tools and end products. This production takes place directly on the basis of the computer-internal data models (transfer usually via the STL interface) from formless (liquids, gels/pastes, powders, etc.) or form-neutral (strip, wire, sheet) material by means of chemical and/or physical processes. Although shaping processes are often involved, a specific product does not require special tools that have stored the respective geometry of the workpiece (for example, casting moulds).
Construction volume: 340x340x600mm
In connection with additive manufacturing, various research services are offered in the fields of product development and engineering, manufacturing technology (incl. process automation) and material sciences.
Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure
The entire process chain can be mapped, from the acquisition or creation of the geometry data, the optimisation of production to post-processing. A wide variety of plastics can be processed (PA).
