LENS Machine Tool Series
The LENS Machine Tool Series takes Optomec’s industry-proven metal 3D Printing technology and integrates it into standard CNC machine tool platforms, resulting in lower-cost, higher-value metal additive manufacturing and hybrid solutions.
Three standard system configurations are offered making hybrid and traditional metal additive manufacturing much more affordable and accessible to a wider range of industries.
LENS 3D METAL ADDITIVE SYSTEM
The LENS 3D Metal Additive System provides high-value open atmosphere processing at the lowest cost. The system combines industry-proven LENS Print Engine technology integrated into a rugged CNC machine tool platform.
LENS 3D METAL HYBRID SYSTEM
The LENS 3D Metal Hybrid VMC(Vertical Milling Center) System is the industry’s value leader, combining additive and subtractive operations on the same machine at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions. Built on a solid cast iron CNC platform, the system features high precision ball screws, spindle, 8 tool ATC and advanced Siemens controls, seamlessly integrated with LENS Print Engine technology.
LENS 3D METAL HYBRID CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE SYSTEM
This LENS 3D Metal Hybrid System is an industry first providing an atmosphere controlled environment to extend hybrid manufacturing capabilities for reactive metals and aluminum. By replacing the upper enclosure with an Optomec proprietary hermitically sealed chamber and gas purification system, oxygen and moisture levels can be maintained at < 40 ppm enabling high quality processing of metals such as Titanium.
