The EOSINT M 280 machine from EOS

GPI Prototype, based in Lake Bluff, IL, USA, has announced that it has completed the installation of an EOSINT M 280 machine from EOS. The EOSINT M 280 is an updated version of the EOSINT M 270 currently being used at GPI to build metal parts additively. The addition of a second machine establishes GPI as a leader in rapid prototyping and expands their DMLS material selection to include aluminum and titanium.

DMLS offers many advantages versus traditional tooling, including the ability to manufacture complex geometries and shapes not possible with CNC machining. Conformal cooling channels can also be integrated into designs to dramatically reduce injection molding cycle/lead times and lower costs. GPI offers eight material choices for DMLS including Stainless Steel, Cobalt Chrome, Maraging Steel, Bronze Alloy, Titanium Alloy, Aluminum & Nickel Alloy. Parts can be built in 20 micron layers with a turnaround time of a few days.

Additional services include Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), 3D Printing (3DP), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV), Investment Casting, Tooling, CNC Machining, Finishing & Painting, Laser Scanning & Packaging solutions. GPI Prototype was founded in 2007 and employs 27 people.
