The cost-effective, tool-less production of lightweight components reduces fuel consumption, material costs and CO2 emissions. Engine and turbine parts as well as cabin interior components are typical applications for industrial 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing (AM. This is where the benefits of innovative EOS technology come to the fore: functional components with complex geometries and defined aerodynamic properties can be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively. Material and weight savings lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Manufacturer-specific adaptations and small production runs are further arguments in favour of Additive Manufacturing technology.
