Optomec offers a full range of Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) additive manufacturing solutions for creating, enhancing and repairing metal components. LENS systems use directed energy deposition (DED), where high-powered lasers build structures layer by layer directly from powdered metals, alloys, ceramics or composites to produce fully-dense parts with excellent mechanical and fatigue properties.
With decades of experience in DED, Optomec incorporates this expertise into its LENS metal additive manufacturing solutions, resulting in a high-speed, high-quality, affordable metal 3D printing process making complex metal parts easier, more precise, efficient and affordable to produce and repair for many industries such as aerospace, defense, energy, automotive, medical and heavy industry. With the use of a high-power laser, process controls, and complete environmental control, the LENS process supports many materials from stainless steel, aluminum, tool steel to high-performance metals including titanium, stainless steel, and Inconel® with the quality required for critical applications. LENS technology is available either in turnkey system configurations or as a modular print engine that can be integrated into existing or new CNC machine tools giving the most flexibility to the users.
