A kind of directed power deposition (DED), Optomec’s LENS platform is able to layering metallic onto quite a lot of pre-fabricated objects and surfaces. For that reason, it is rather efficient at elements refurbishment and restore. One of many main functions for Optomec LENS, is the restore of fuel turbine parts within the aviation and power sectors, which has been bolstered by its acquisition of CNC and laser cladding machine provider Hoffman. At the moment, mixed with these made by Hoffman, Optomec counts almost 100 LENS installations at main OEMS and tier 1 suppliers worldwide. The brand new Middle for Superior Manufacturing at Navajo Technical College, in Crownpoint, New Mexico, has turn out to be the most recent beneficiary of an Optomec LENS system, earlier within the yr the corporate additionally partnered with Phillips Federal, to provide the U.S. authorities with LENS gear.
3D printed electronics
AJP is regarded individually as Optomec’s 3D printed electronics enterprise. It’s used to print interconnects onto both 2D or 3D surfaces, and has confirmed able to creating sensors and antennas. In June 2019, multinational shopper electronics big Samsung commissioned an Aerosol Jet 5X System from Optomec. Medical system and military-aerospace markets are additionally presently being explored by the corporate with this method.
