The companies Eplus3D and Fuchshofer have agreed a partnership for large-format metal 3D printing. The companies have announced that an EP-M650 3D printer will go into operation at Fuchshofer in 2024.
Eplus3D is a Chinese manufacturer of 3D printers that specialize in the laser melting of metal powder. Fuchshofer, based in Austria, is a metal construction company that also offers 3D printing services.
According to the announcement, the EP-M650 has four 700-watt lasers and a build volume of 650 x 650 x 800 millimeters. This will enable Fuchshofer to additively manufacture even larger components in the future and open up new markets.
Fuchshofer CEO Hannes Fuchshofer sees 3D printing as a useful addition to conventional manufacturing processes. With the EP-M650 from Eplus3D, the company intends to further expand its capacities and establish itself as a leading provider.
According to Eplus3D, the 3D printer scores highly in terms of efficiency and process reliability. The partnership will enable the company to make its own technology available to a broader customer base. Together, the partners want to further strengthen their position in the field of metal additive manufacturing.
