Morris Technologies purchases first new EOSINT M 270 system for titanium in North America

Today EOS GmbH Electro Optical Systems, the worldwide leading manufacturer of laser-sintering systems, announced that Morris Technologies, Inc. (MTI), the largest supplier of direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) parts worldwide, has purchased an EOSINT M 270 system to laser-sinter titanium. The machine will be installed in Xtended Mode, including new features which greatly improve the performance for producing titanium parts, enabling these to be built much faster and in enhanced quality compared to the first generation titanium process, which was launched in 2007.  

This is the first North American purchase of an EOSINT M 270 in Xtended Mode, and it is the ninth DMLS system that MTI has acquired from EOS — the most of any lab or manufacturer in the world. MTI will use the new system to offer rapid prototyping and manufacturing in titanium to its customers in the aerospace and medical industries.  

"We were the first U.S. firm to install DMLS equipment," says Greg Morris, CEO/COO of MTI, "and yearly demand for laser-sintering services has increased. We expect interest in titanium parts to follow the same strong demand curve."  

"Since 2006, Morris Technologies has partnered with EOS to help us identify product applications and introduce our systems to the manufacturing industry," says Jim Fendrick, vice president of EOS of North America. "With the purchase of this new titanium-based system, MTI stays among the leading suppliers who are willing to explore DMLS and the breakthroughs it holds for innovative companies."  

The EOSINT M 270 system uses laser-sintering to additively manufacture parts layer-by-layer. A range of metal materials is available, including steels, cobalt- and nickel-based superalloys and titanium alloys. EOS Titanium Ti64 is a pre-alloyed Ti6AL4V alloy with excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, low specific weight, and biocompatibility. Parts built from this alloy can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shot-peened, polished and coated as needed. Typical uses include dental, orthopedic, and airframe applications.
