Optomec launched a new tool series that enables low-cost, high-value metal additive manufacturing. The new LENS Machine Tool Series integrates Optomec’s LENS metal additive manufacturing technology into conventional CNC Vertical Milling platforms. Optomec’s new series combines high-quality CNC platforms from Fryer Machine Systems with LENS Print Engine technology to bring metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a broader market. It includes three standard configurations, all designed to reduce manufacturing process times and costs while enabling improved end product performance and rapid design changes. The 3D Metal Additive System provides high-value, open atmosphere processing at the lowest cost. The second configuration offered is the 3D Metal Hybrid VMC System, combines additive and subtractive operations on the same machine. Thirdly, the 3D Metal Hybrid VMC Inert System provides an atmosphere-controlled environment to extend hybrid manufacturing capabilities for reactive metals and aluminum.
