Emona announces our appointment as the Australia and New Zealand Representative of the Optomec range of LENS metal and aerosol jet 3D printers in Australia and New Zealand.

Optomec’s breakthrough Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing technologies are spearheading next generation products in Aerospace, Defense, Electronics and Biomedical applications. These products are highly differentiated for several reasons, primarily: the breadth of materials supported – from structural metals to printed electronics and bio-materials; and, the features these products can produce - from microns to meters.

With their Headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, Optomec introduced their first commercial system in 1998, and have since installed more than 200 systems worldwide. Optomec's marquee user base includes leading manufacturing companies such as GE, Corning, Boeing, Lockheed, Saturn, TE Connectivity, Panasonic, Samsung, Bosch and Xerox with additional installations at CSIRO, NASA, the US Army, US Air Force and more than 30 leading universities around the world, and Australian reference sites University of New South Wales, University of Queensland, Swinburne University of Technology and Deakin University.

Optomec’s commercial LENS™ and Aerosol Jet® systems are proprietary additive manufacturing technologies utilized for cost-effective development, production, and repair for a wide range of end-products. The Optomec Professional Services team works closely with our customers and partners through application development projects and system support services to ensure end-user success.

 

 

Optomec's LENS MR-7: installed at the CSIRO LAB 22 Centre for Additive Innovation

    

Optomec LENS Systems:
LENS systems utilize high power laser processing to fabricate and repair high value metal components in materials such as titanium, steel and Inconel®. The LENS process is used in a range of Aerospace, Defense and Medical applications, including: the Repair of gas turbine engine components; Cladding; and, Production of titanium hardware.

The Optomec LENS MR-7 is used at CSIRO's Lab 22, Australia’s centre for innovation in metallic additive manufacturing. The LENS MR-7 is being used for the fabrication and repair of high performance single or multi-material metal components in materials such as titanium, stainless steel, and Inconel®.

Optomec AEROSOL JET Systems:
Aerosol Jet is used for printable electronics and biologics applications. This technology is capable of precise deposition of a wide variety of electronic and polymeric materials at the micrometer size scale. In the process, a liquid ink is aerosolized and the droplets are aerodynamically focused to a micron-scale point on the target substrate. The ink options include a wide range of commercially available nanoparticle conductors, polymeric and inorganic semiconductors, ceramics, graphene and other functional materials. Application areas include the repair and manufacture of: Display Electronics; Antenna and Sensors; Flex Circuits; and, Bio-depositions for Drug Discovery.
