Optomec provides two technology offerings. The LENS system, a blown powder laser-based 3D printer for metals which the company manufactures under license from the Sandia National Laboratory. The second is an Aerosol Jet system which provides for conformal, direct-write, non-contact deposition of materials for printed electronics, which the company developed in-house. It can utilize a wide range of materials, with less constraints compared to inkjet. It has been successfully demonstrated and used in metallization of solar cells.
