i3D MFG and EOS Ink sign contract for the purchase of 12 industrial 3D printers

Integrated 3D (i3D MFG), one of the largest additive manufacturing companies in North America, and 3D printer manufacturer EOS announced at RAPID + TCT 2024 the signing of a letter of intent for the purchase of twelve 4-laser EOS M 400-4 metal 3D printers by i3D.

This investment will increase the number of EOS systems at the Redmond, Oregon facility to a total of 36. The majority of the machines are expected to be delivered in 2024, with the remaining deliveries scheduled for 2025 and 2026.

“i3D’s strong partnership with EOS has had a demonstrable impact on our ability to serve broad customer-based needs for complex metal additive components. The combination of forward-thinking, resiliency, reliability and best-in-class technology is at the forefront of why i3D continues to expand our relationship with EOS”, said Erin Mastroni, CEO, i3D.

Since acquiring an EOS M 280 in 2013, i3D has been committed to EOS’ Direct Metal Laser Solidification (DMLS) laser powder bed fusion technology. i3D has since become a major player in metal additive manufacturing, serving customers in various industries such as aerospace, medical, renewable energy and automotive. In addition, i3D’s leadership in additive manufacturing enables it to accelerate technological developments for other customers under the BTX Precision umbrella, particularly in the aerospace and semiconductor industries.

“This order is one of the largest single metal AM investments ever in North America. The fact that i3D is fully committed to EOS technology is extremely gratifying. i3D’s extraordinary team, led by Erin, has driven dynamic, ambitious growth. The reliability of EOS systems and services has been integral to their progress. There is an amazing collaborative bond between our two companies. Strong, supportive relationships at every level have helped create the path to today’s announcement”, said Glynn Fletcher, President, EOS North America.

With four 400-watt lasers and an installation space of 400x400x400 mm, the EOS M 400-4 is ideal for series production in metal additive manufacturing and can process a variety of materials such as aluminum, copper, stainless steel, titanium and tool steels.
