“We are pleased to partner with Detekt to expand sales of LENS and Aerosol Jet systems in Taiwan and to select companies in greater China,” stated Michael Kardos, Optomec Vice President of World Wide Sales. “Detekt is a leading provider of industrial Additive Manufacturing systems and services in Asia with production facilities that meet the stringent quality standards of the medical industry”.

Optomec Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight, high-performance devices used in industries such as aerospace, defence, consumer electronics and the Internet of Things. Aerosol Jet technology, which is scalable for high volume production applications, uses a patented process of aerodynamic focusing to precisely print electronic circuitry and functional components in dimensions ranging from as small as 10 microns to as large as several millimetres in a single pass.

Optomec LENS printers use the energy from a high-power laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. The LENS process can completely build new metal parts or add material to existing metal components for repair and hybrid manufacturing applications. LENS technology is available in standalone system configurations or as a modular print engine for integration with existing CNC automation platforms and robots.
