The mass production methods we know today are on the verge of a silently occurring revolution. Both industry and consumers are increasingly demanding tailor-made products. e-Manufacturing with laser-sintering is developing into the key technology for exactly this type of customized series production. The reason for this is that the costs of laser-sintering do not increase with the degree of customization or the complexity of the product.
e-Manufacturing makes it possible to produce customized products with highly complex shapes which, up until now, would have been inconceivable using conventional series manufacturing methods. Above all, e-Manufacturing is practically unbeatable when it comes to the assembly of bionic structures, innovations in the field of ergonomics (eg medical) or aerodynamics (eg aerospace). Whether dental implants, tools, aerospace parts, lamps or jewellery: e-Manufacturing makes it possible to produce customized products with highly complex shapes which, up until now, would have been inconceivable using conventional series manufacturing methods. The process enables almost fully automatic production and also new production models such as decentralized manufacturing.
3D Engineering brings to the manufacturing world rapid manufacturing technology from EOS, Germany. EOS was founded in 1989 and is today the world leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems. Laser-sintering is the key technology for e-Manufacturing, the fast, flexible and cost-effective production of products, patterns and tools. The technology manufactures parts for every phase of the product life cycle, directly from electronic data. Laser-sintering accelerates product development and optimizes production processes.
