Indiana Tech acquires Second Additive Manufacturing System from EOS

Indiana Tech has acquired its second EOS industrial 3D printer, the FORMIGA P 110 Velocis, as part of the expansion and renovation of the Zollner Engineering Center for the Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences.

The university will offer engineering students a unique advantage by acquiring EOS technology. It will be among the few universities in Indiana to offer access to polymer and metal AM technology.

“3D printing will have a massive impact on advanced manufacturing by decentralizing production, improving product customization and resource efficiency, and reducing complexity,” said Dr. Ying Shang, dean of the Talwar College of Engineering and Computer Sciences at Indiana Tech. “As northeast Indiana grows its advanced manufacturing potential, the region’s workforce will need new knowledge and skill sets in additive manufacturing. With the two new additions of innovative EOS 3D printers and additional 3D printers for carbon fiber and other composite materials, Indiana Tech will become the leading institution in the nation for developing new talent in additive manufacturing for automotive, medical device, aeronautical applications and more.”

The acquisition of the EOS systems was made possible through the support of a private alumnus and grants from the university, most notably a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA).

“As additive manufacturing begins to play a larger role in U.S. manufacturing, it is crucial we prepare the next generation of STEM for the shift in engineer training,” said Greg Hayes, SVP of applied technology at EOS North America. “Amid ongoing AM adoption and government investment into the technology, we feel confident that use of our printers will give Indiana Tech students the tools and competitive advantage needed to bolster the workforce and push the boundaries of what we can accomplish with industrial 3D printing.”
