INTEGRA P 450
EOS North America has launched its new INTEGRA P 450 3D printer.
The mid-range temperature, polymer SLS system goals to bridge the hole between prototyping and serial manufacturing with a scalable, modular design. With a most temperature of 300°C, the INTEGRA P 450 caters to a variety of SLS-suitable polymers for industrial purposes.
David Leigh, COO of EOS North America, said: “Our prospects spoke, and we listened. Each side of the INTEGRA P 450’s design – from its serviceability and materials flexibility to the thermal imaging digicam and workflow-based method – was thoughtfully measured towards buyer suggestions to create a machine that may simply scale and bridge the hole, from R&D and prototyping, to serial manufacturing.”

Powder mattress fusion expertise
Based in 1989, EOS made its 3D printing debut with the STEREOS 400 system, one of many first business-ready SLA machines to be developed. Since then, the corporate has moved into powder mattress fusion methods with a give attention to polymer sintering within the final decade.
EOS’ portfolio of SLS methods contains however will not be restricted to the FORMIGA P 110 Velocis, a compact cost-efficient system appropriate for customers simply coming into the production-grade AM market. The EOS P 396, optimized for serial elements, gives a better charge of output with repeatable tight tolerances. The EOS P 770, housing two lasers, is appropriate for big half manufacturing and high-throughput industrial manufacturing.
With the discharge of the INTEGRA P 450, EOS intends to supply its prospects with an adaptable system. Scalability and flexibility are on the coronary heart of this 3D printer, permitting INTEGRA P 450 customers to fabricate elements for a variety of purposes.

The INTEGRA P 450
The P 450 is able to temperatures of as much as 300°C, permitting for the 3D printing of a broad vary of polymers. Its eight independently managed quartz heating zones end in extra constant half manufacturing in addition to an environment friendly use of the 420x420x500mm construct quantity. The printer’s improved course of chamber enhances thermal uniformity to make sure production-grade mechanical properties. A thermal imaging digicam built-in into the system gives real-time thermal evaluation of half beds for superior in-situ high quality management.
An exchangeable optics tray and upgradable construct quantity had been developed with important enter from service professionals, making the system all of the extra serviceable to scale back downtime. Elective equipment embody extra change frames, changeable laser window models, extra multibox feed system models, and a lowered construct quantity adaptor that’s at present in growth.
A CO2 120W laser gives a scanning pace of 12.7m/s. A dual-roller recoating system reapplies powders at speeds of as much as zero.4m/s, leading to a typical construct charge of 25mm/hour. New aircraft segmentation capabilities enable for various layer thicknesses inside the identical half, starting from zero.10mm to zero.18mm. EOS’ proprietary EOSPRINT 2 software program allows easy development from CAD mannequin to 3D printed half.
Under are the technical specs for the INTEGRA P 450. Orders are already being accepted, though availability is at present restricted to North America. Go to the INTEGRA P 450 web site for extra info.
