3D Hybrid System Enables Additive and Subtractive Processing of Metals in One Machine Tool Platform

Optomec's new controlled atmosphere LENS 3D Hybrid Machine Tool is the industry's first and only system that enables additive and subtractive processing of aluminum, titanium and other reactive metals all in one affordable machine tool platform.

Optomec LENS systems are the leading Directed Energy Deposition (DED) solution on the market, with nearly 100 installations. The new LENS 3D Machine Tool Series (MTS) low-cost products enable 3D printed metal solutions at roughly 1/3 the price of powder bed based systems, in terms of equipment cost, powder cost and throughput, and further have the benefit of enabling high ROI applications such as Repair and Wear Coatings.

The Optomec LENS 3D MTS combines a high-quality CNC platform with industry-proven LENS technology to bring metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a broader market. The Series includes four models each designed to reduce manufacturing process times and costs while enabling improved end product performance.

"The market reaction to the LENS 3D Machine Tool series has been outstanding," said Ken Vartanian, VP of Marketing at Optomec. "Since its introduction a little over a year ago, Optomec has received orders from industrial and academic customers around the world. We are pleased that our strategy to make metal additive manufacturing affordable is resonating."

Optomec will be showcasing the system at the Formnext Conference held November 14-17, in Frankfurt, Germany.
