Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Optomec, a leading global supplier of production-grade additive manufacturing (AM) systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, announced today that it will feature its recently released LENS Machine Tool Series for metal AM applications at the Laser Institute of America’s (LIA), Laser Additive Manufacturing (LAM) Conference in Houston, Texas on February 21-22. The Machine Tool Series combines Optomec industry-proven LENS Print Engine technology with conventional CNC Vertical Milling platforms making metal AM technology affordable to a broader market.

Three models of the LENS Machine Tool Series are available, including an industry-first Hybrid Controlled Atmosphere system for processing titanium and aluminum. The remaining two LENS Machine Tool Series models include a Hybrid Open Atmosphere and Additive-only Open Atmosphere systems for processing non-reactive metals. All three standard configurations are designed to reduce manufacturing process times and costs while enabling improved end-product performance and rapid design changes. Entry-level pricing for the LENS Machine Tool Series starts at under $250,000.

For over two decades, Optomec LENS 3D Metal Printers have been used to cost-effectively repair, rework and manufacture high-performance metal components in materials such as titanium, stainless steel, and superalloys. LENS printers use the energy from a high-power laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. The resulting fully functional metal structures offer excellent mechanical properties, similar to forged components for many applications. LENS 3D printers are used throughout the entire product lifecycle for applications ranging from Materials Research to Repair and Rework to Low Volume Manufacturing.

The 2017 LAM workshop will feature presentations from researchers and industry presenters on when, where, and how to use laser additive manufacturing. Attendees will learn about additive manufacturing from design, materials, modeling, and manufacturing to applications. A new session on micro/nano laser additive manufacturing will cover the latest research in this rapidly rising area of laser manufacturing. Serving the industrial, medical, research, and government communities for over 45 years, LIA offers technical information, training, and networking opportunities to laser users from around the globe.
