EOS implements Materialise’s CO-AM software platform

3D printer manufacturer EOS has acquired the CO-AM software platform from 3D printing software developer Materialise to manage its additive manufacturing (AM) processes for application development and in-house sintering production. CO-AM integrates with EOS’ existing infrastructure and will be used to improve the efficiency of AM production at its global facilities.

The CO-AM software platform provides access to a suite of software tools to plan, manage and optimize the 3D printing process. EOS has integrated CO-AM into its infrastructure and connected it to its equipment fleet. CO-AM will support EOS’ internal AM workflow, from job management to post-processing.

“It is critical that tools such as CO-AM are able to provide improvements in the efficiency of AM production that outweigh the cost of using the tool,” said Trevor Kirsten, Head of Digital Manufacture at EOS. “With enhanced connectivity and traceability in CO-AM, we aim to improve efficiency in our production process by reducing powder consumption and the number of machines required for our operations.”

The CO-AM platform offers features such as the Scheduler, which displays scheduled and actual printer activity to improve utilization rates. Materialise’s AMWatch software enables operators and engineers to monitor build status and sensor data to reduce scrap rates and optimize quality control. EOS employees also gain access to CO-AM data collected via an iOS app to monitor processes in real time.

“One of the primary benefits of the CO-AM platform is the open and flexible architecture that allows companies to integrate the software with their existing manufacturing technology and adapt it to their needs,” said Jim Carlson, Head of Global Customer Success at Materialise. “EOS and Materialise share a long partnership, and we are looking forward to collaborating with them to create a more efficient and connected additive workflow.”
