Optomec, a global supplier of production grade Additive Manufacturing systems for 3D Printed Metals and 3D Printed Electronics based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is featuring its new LENS Machine Tool series for 3D printed metals and Aerosol Jet 3D printers for functional Electronics at the formnext exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany November 15-18. Optomec are located in Stand 3.1- D05.
The new LENS Machine Tool Series integrates Optomec’s LENS metal Additive Manufacturing technology into conventional CNC Vertical Milling platforms, resulting in what it claims are breakthrough price points as well as the industry’s first Hybrid VMC Controlled-Atmosphere System.
“Optomec’s Machine Tool series leverages LENS industry-proven technology to provide high-performance metal additive and hybrid manufacturing capabilities at an incredible price point, making additive manufacturing a viable solution for the machine tooling industry,” stated David Ramahi, President and CEO of Optomec.
“This new product line complements our existing LENS systems and fills specific gaps for low cost additive only and hybrid CNC inert systems. We are working with machine tool vendors to make production-grade metal additive manufacturing more affordable and accessible,” added Ramahi.
Optomec’s new LENS Machine Tool series combines CNC platforms from Fryer Machine Systems with its LENS Print Engine technology to bring metal AM capabilities to a broader market. It includes three standard configurations, all designed to reduce manufacturing process times and costs while enabling improved end product performance and rapid design changes.
