EOS has introduced the launch of its Digital Foam Architects community, designed to speed up the event and 3D printing of shopper, medical, and industrial merchandise that includes Digital Foam functions. Founding members embrace EOS, Arkema, Basic Lattice and DyeMansion.
EOS says that Digital Foam breathes new life into mature merchandise, whereas additionally creating new product choices from athletic sneakers, to orthotics, to protecting gear and medical merchandise. Producers can ‘dial-in’ the efficiency or options they should ship product differentiation in addition to present mass customised product choices.
In response to the corporate, Digital Foam functions usually have advanced necessities, requiring a number of disciplines to make sure success. The Digital Foam Architects community normalises a standing alliance of 3D printing specialists able to deliver concepts to manufacturing says EOS.
“Digital Foam functions could be designed and produced with tailor-made options for efficiency, safety and lightweighting. However Digital Foam will not be a product, somewhat it’s an strategy to 3D printing foam-like merchandise. The Digital Foam Architects community is one other chapter within the maturation of this strategy by coalescing the required AM experience. We’re very happy to announce our first commitments to this community of specialists,” mentioned Jon Walker, Digital Foam spokesperson for EOS.

Adrien Lapeyre, Director of Arkema’s 3D printing program added: “Arkema is dedicated to supporting new additive manufacturing software growth by means of extra sustainable materials options. In collaboration with EOS, we proceed to push the boundaries on what is possible in 3D printing by combining robust enablers, comparable to Digital Foam, and new supplies, comparable to Pebax elastomers. We look ahead to the expansion of Digital Foam and we are going to proceed to play an lively function on this program.”
EOS says that underpinning Digital Foam is its patent referring to any generatively desiged 3D printed venture which has a versatile grid-like construction or matrix, composed of open cells which can be joined collectively in teams of differing traits.
The corporate says the community will develop its companions as Digital Foam continues to be leveraged as an additively manufactured versatile lattice answer.
