Integrated 3D – or i3D MFG for short – one of the largest metal additive manufacturing (AM) organizations in North America, and EOS, a leading supplier of responsible manufacturing solutions, signed a letter of intent to purchase twelve ultra-productive 4-laser EOS M 400-4 metal 3D printers. The massive investment will grow i3D’s all-EOS capacity to 36 systems in their Redmond, Oregon, production facility. Delivery of a large portion of the machines is expected in 2024 and the remainder completion of deliveries is slated for 2025 and 2026.

“i3D’s strong partnership with EOS has had a demonstrable impact on our ability to serve broad customer-based needs for complex metal additive components,” said Erin Mastroni, CEO, i3D MFG. “The combination of forward-thinking, resiliency, reliability and best-in-class technology is at the forefront of why i3D continues to expand our relationship with EOS.”

The EOS M 400-4 continues to propel the growing demand for large parts, as well as true metal AM production of complex, disruptive parts.

Starting in 2013 with the acquisition of an EOS M 280, i3D has committed to EOS’ Direct Metal Laser Solidification (DMLS) laser powder bed fusion technology. i3D has subsequently grown into a major player in metal AM, with customers in a broad spectrum of industries, such as space, medical device manufacturing, clean energy, and automotive. Additionally, i3D’s leadership in additive manufacturing further unlocks capabilities to accelerate technological development for other customers under the BTX Precision umbrella in the aerospace and semiconductor industries. Those industries, along with the significant growth in rockets, satellites, and defense applications, are propelling both i3D’s and BTX’s dramatic growth in the high-precision manufacturing sector.

“This order is one of the largest single metal AM investments ever in North America. The fact that i3D is fully committed to EOS technology is extremely gratifying. i3D’s extraordinary team, led by Erin, has driven dynamic, ambitious growth. The reliability of EOS systems and services has been integral to their progress,” said Glynn Fletcher, President, EOS North America. “There is an amazing collaborative bond between our two companies. Strong, supportive relationships at every level have helped create the path to today’s announcement.”

With four 400-watt lasers and a 400x400x400 mm build volume, the EOS M 400-4 is tailored for serial production of metal AM and can accommodate processing of a broad range of materials, including aluminum, copper, stainless, titanium, and tool steels, among others.
