Optomec, a global supplier of production grade Additive Manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, has announced it signed a distribution agreement with Dragonfly to expand sales of its products into Italy. Dragonfly is an innovative product and service provider enabling its industrial customers to embrace new and emerging Additive Manufacturing opportunities.
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 and consumer electronics. 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 millimeters 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.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Dragonfly to expand sales of Optomec products in Italy,” stated Michael Kardos, Optomec Vice President of World Wide Sales. “Dragonfly is solely focused on the Additive Manufacturing sector and a perfect fit for introducing innovative products such as our LENS and Aerosol Jet systems to an untapped marketplace in Italy. Their consultative approach and experienced team will help insure a successful customer base.”
