nLIGHT, Inc., a supplier of high-power semiconductor and fiber lasers, and 3D printer producer EOS, signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to pursue a joint strategic expertise cooperation.

The cooperation between nLIGHT and EOS contains the implementation of a collection of complementary laser-based applied sciences to optimize the AM gentle engine for strong industrial 3D printing manufacturing. nLIGHT and EOS plan to make beam shaping and lightweight engine optimization capabilities obtainable digitally, enabling clients to entry completely different beam profiles by way of EOS software program to activate larger productiveness printing.

The groups and applied sciences at nLIGHT and EOS are extremely complementary; we’re excited to construct on the early success with AMCM to combine our laser applied sciences into the broader EOS portfolio,” stated Scott Keeney, CEO of nLIGHT.

AMCM, an EOS Group firm centered on custom-made AM options, has already made the programmable AFX laser obtainable in its steel AM methods. The LOI between nLIGHT and EOS represents an evolution of this relationship.

“The pliability and efficiency features of nLIGHT’s beam shaping and laser applied sciences give us an unprecedented development in steel AM methods and can permit our clients to unleash a brand new stage of productiveness,” Marie Langer, CEO of EOS states.

nLIGHT and EOS plan to make the AFX-enabled machines obtainable to clients in late-2024.
