EOS has entered into a strategic cooperation with GF Machining Solutions to offer customers innovative solutions combining both companies’ technologies. 

The two companies have agreed to focus on the mould and die sector. They will develop exclusive solutions for mould makers, a market in which GF holds a leading position thanks to its EDM, high speed milling and automation technologies.

The additive manufacturing technology offers for such customers the possibility to generate metal inserts featuring cooling close to the surface, allowing a shorter mould cooling sequence and therefore a much faster plastic injection cycle.

GF and EOS will undertake the integration of the additive manufacturing machines into the production process of mould inserts, including the necessary software and automation link with downstream machine tools and measuring devices.

EOS founder and CEO, Dr. Hans J. Langer said, “The cooperation allows us to increase the value for customers by integrating conventional and additive technologies. This is a large step towards seamless production and we join forces with a strong and experienced partner.”

GF CEO, Yves Serra said, “We welcome very much this strategic partnership. GF and EOS complement each other very well to offer the large customer base of GF Machining Solutions a unique set of technologies.”
