At EuroMold in Frankfurt, Germany last week, EOS for the first time presented the FORMIGA P 110 – successor model of its established laser-sintering system FORMIGA P 100. The system is suitable for the economic production of small series and customised products with complex geometries. This makes it suitable for small, sophisticated components used in the medical device industry. With a build envelope of 200 mm x 250 mm x 330 mm, the system manufactures products made of polyamide or polystyrene directly from CAD data within only a few hours.
Peter Klink, EVP Sales at EOS, says: “’FORMIGA-quality’ has already become a quality label for the additive manufacturing of plastics. This ongoing development of the P 100 product line will help us to further extend our lead in the compact class.” Various EOS parameter sets enable a focus both on economic efficiency and component properties such as surface quality. With short throughput times and comparatively low investment costs, the FORMIGA P 110 can be integrated into production environments that require maximum flexibility.
According to EOS, numerous technical innovations have been integrated in the FORMIGA P 110, all of which enhance process stability and reproducibility even further. These include the newly designed 4-channel heating and the use of a single-point pyrometer. Least-cost integration in factories that have a central nitrogen supply system is guaranteed by an external nitrogen connection. The established dosing and coating system was retained. The system is user- and maintenance-friendly and requires just a minimum of accessories.Yvonne Klöpping
