German automotive manufacturing company Continental is investing in industrial 3D printing, having acquired several EOS M 290 systems for serial production of metal components. In addition to the new machines, EOS will also provide support in installation, training, application development, and launching of manufacturing capacities.
Markus Glasser, Senior Vice President Region Export at EOS said of the collaboration: “We are very proud of our joint project with Continental and look forward to supporting the customer throughout every stage of the project. In particular, the strong spirit of teamwork between our two companies was a key criterion in Continental’s decision to work together with EOS. We will also be very happy to provide Continental with any assistance it may need in other fascinating projects going forward.”
