EOS P 500 system comes automation ready and can process polymer materials, which require operating temperatures of up to 300°C.
The EOS P 500 system for additive manufacturing (AM) addresses companies who want to mass produce polymer parts on an industrial scale in combination with premium part quality. The new system offers high efficiency for lowest cost-per-part, comes automation ready and can process polymer materials, which require operating temperatures of up to 300°C. The EOS P 500 builds twice as quickly as the current fastest laser sintering machine (EOS P 396) thanks to a dual-laser system fusing the powder, and a new recoater. The latter applies a new layer of powder to the building platform with high speed (600mm/s) and maximum adjustability. Also, the material flow has been optimized. In contrast to previous systems, the EOS P 500 preheats polymer material in advance, before it is applied on the build platform, reducing layer times. The system can also reuse all recycled powder for the next build job at higher fill rates, further increasing the efficiency of the system.
