In 2016 Eaton opened an Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) at its Southfield, Mich., Innovation Center. The AM CoE will usher in a new era in the company’s manufacturing capabilities by adding cutting-edge manufacturing technologies in 3D-printing for both metal and non-metal applications.
Eaton’s investment in the AM CoE will enable the company to meet increasing demand for complex high performance components, tools and fixtures, while improving speed to market and advancing sustainable manufacturing efforts.
Eaton engineers globally train at the AM CoE, and eventually contribute to further developing additive manufacturing techniques and facilitating the technology’s rapid adoption in real world products. The initial investment included dedicating 3,700 square-feet within Eaton’s Southfield Innovation Center, staff and machines for direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), and a range of 3D-printing technologies for polymers, supporting computing and machine shop.
