EOS P 500

The automation-ready manufacturing platform for laser sintering of plastic parts on an industrial scale

High quality components at the lowest cost-per-part. Maximum productivity for processing polymers at operating temperatures of up to 300°C

The innovative manufacturing platform produces components that fulfill highest requirements regarding mechanical and dimensional accuracy and reproducibility. Thanks to clever hardware interfaces and accessories, the uptime of the EOS P 500 increases by up to 75% compared to predecessor systems and competition models.
EOS P 500

Efficency

The innovative recoater, which applies and densifies material with a speed of up to 0,6 m/sec, as well as two powerful 70 watt lasers reduce cost-per-part by more than 30%.

Flexibility

The system processes polymer materials at operating temperatures of up to 300°C enabeling maximum material flexibility. Open software interfaces and user-friendly tools support application and material development.

Automation

With EOSYSTEM the machine is operated intuitively. EOSPRINT 2 enables software integration in CAD systems, e. g. NX™ from Siemens and via EOSCONNECT the connection to ERP systems. Thus the EOS P 500 supports a digital control of production.
