EOS transforms companies into additive manufacturing champions

November 2016 – EOS, the global technology and quality leader for high-end Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions, has expanded its consulting and knowledge transfer portfolio of services under the name “Additive Minds”. Based on three pillars of Consulting, the Innovation Centre and the Additive Minds Academy, the EOS team of experts will directly upskill customer staff to help more companies benefit from additive manufacturing technology. They enable an even steeper learning curve for customers with respect to AM technology and genuine competitive benefits.

Many global technology corporations have realised the potential of industrial 3D printing and are strategically investing in the area. However, to succeed enterprises must go beyond just developing new applications

The development of industrial 3D printing expertise and experience poses a challenge for many companies. The reasons are many and varied: while suitable study and training programs are only now being planned, but not all of them are actually on offer; and there are few trained and experienced experts in the labour market. Education in the technology can be both costly and time-intensive.

Güngör Kara, Director Global Application and Consulting at EOS, adds: “Our Additive Minds services cover the customer’s complete lifecycle – from additive manufacturing fundamentals and the choice of correct component or application, to the engineering process and development of the application, right down to planning the industrial production, qualification and validation.” He continues: “The huge innovation potential of this technology makes a key contribution to the current and future transformation process in industrial manufacturing. Based on our technology and extended consulting and training offers, customers can achieve the next level of innovation sooner.”

The Additive Minds Academy will soon offer an additive manufacturing courses and workshops. EOS has also developed its own training program in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton and the SRH Hochschule Berlin. Participants can qualify as an “AM Application Engineer” within six months through intensive learning modules and practical exercises. The first participants will begin their course in February 2017.
