Fuchshofer Advanced Manufacturing (FAM GmbH) acquired an EP-M650 large-format metal 3D printer from Eplus3D. When the installation is completed in 2024, it will be the largest L-PBF system in Europe at a service provider. The two companies are also entering into a strategic partnership to advance large-format metal AM.

“The printer allows us to create component sizes of 650 x 650 x 800 mm, opening up new market applications for us. With this multi-laser system equipped with four 700 W fiber lasers, we are taking the next significant step to establish ourselves as a leading international metal 3D printing service provider,” said DI Dr. Mont. Gerhard Panzl, Head of Additive Manufacturing at Fuchshofer.

“The fact that 3D metal printing represents a meaningful expansion of traditional component manufacturing became clear to us when we purchased our first 3D metal printer in 2016. Where machining technology reaches its limits, additive manufacturing showcases its strengths. Topology optimization, near-net cooling channels, free design, or accelerated prototype development – all of this makes additive manufacturing a game-changer in the entire industry,” stated Hannes Fuchshofer, CEO of Fuchshofer Advanced Manufacturing.
