Optomec, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, has reported receiving over $7 million in new orders, including more than ten new systems being added to increase capacity for existing users, together with a range of enabling software products and digital process recipes.

David Ramahi, CEO, stated, “We have seen a marked increase in business activity over the last few months, following COVID’s peak case count in the first quarter. It seems only natural that the first movers making new investments are our long-time customers, many of whom have proven high ROI’s on our production Additive Manufacturing equipment.”

One of the purchases was made by a major defence electronics OEM – it has added another two AM machines with a total value of $500,000. This order brings its total fleet to ten of Optomec’s Aerosol Jet systems, the majority of which are used in production for advanced semiconductor packaging applications.

In another case, a top-tier supplier of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for gas turbine engines added a fifth production system for the restoration of turbine blades. The purchase of this $1 million metal AM machine suggests a return to investment for the aviation sector, the company stated.
