3D printer manufacturer EOS GmbH, Krailling, Germany and metal powder conveying equipment manufacturer Volkmann GmbH, Soest, Germany have formed a cooperation agreement. Via the global partnership, EOS is to offer a new EOS Edition line of Volkmann’s closed-loop and stand-alone, automated metal powder management systems specifically engineered for seamless, easy integration with the EOS M 400 series metal additive manufacturing (AM) systems. The central metal powder management systems automatically control the transfer and loading of material from storage into one or more 3D printers; the capture and sieving of excess powder for reprocessing; and the automated vacuum drying of metal powders. Buffer storage units and other accessories are also available with the new systems.

Available in North America via EOS North America (https://na.eos.info) and via Volkmann USA (https://www.volkmannusa.com), the EOS Edition may operate as a fully enclosed, sealed circuit to eliminate metallic dust from the workplace, safeguard workers from potential exposure, and protect the metal powders from ambient moisture and contamination. The scalable systems may be operated unattended, 24/7, and controlled and monitored remotely.

“Our new systems provide EOS end-users with a complete, plug-and-play, automated powder handling solution that can scale as their production needs increase,” says Christian Mittman, director of advanced solutions for Volkmann. “This is a logical next step in our close relationship with EOS, and one that we feel will benefit EOS customers with faster, safer, more reliable printing and consistently high quality printed parts.”
