Rewriting the Rules of Making Metal Parts

Wohlers Talk

Last week I visited EOS GmbH (Krailling, Germany), a company that manufactures laser-sintering machines for plastics, metals, and foundry sand. EOS employs an experienced dental lab technician that has helped the company develop a start-to-finish process using its cobalt-chrome material for the copings. By the end of my visit, it became clear to me that EOS is rewriting the rules for metal part fabrication.
