What do DMLS and motorsports have in common? High performance and high speed!!!
EOS have been working together with Pankl Racing Systems in Austria. Their AM Competence Center is filled with EOS DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) machines – EOS M 290s, EOS M 400 and EOS M 400-4 – and was recently expanded to make room for the EOS M 300-4 for which they are a pilot customer.
In addition, they have in house post-processing steps such as HIPing as well as extensive Quality Control.
This video shows the entire value chain – from design to final product – for the production of metal parts such as the customized footrest for professional racers in Motocross World Cup racing. This footrest must withstand quite high impact forces upon landing after a jump.
