New Optomec LENS additive plugin combined with Siemens Sinumerik 840D controller provides advanced capabilities for 3D printing of high-value metal parts.

At RAPID-TCT, Optomec, a leading global supplier of production-grade metal, directed energy deposition (DED) systems, will demonstrate simultaneous five-axis additive manufacturing at its booth (#517), enabling new capabilities for building, repairing, and coating mid to large-size complex metal parts.

The new Optomec LENS additive plugin is an advanced tool path generation tool that enables simultaneous five-axis control. When combined with the Siemens Sinumerik 840D CNC, complex geometries can be printed faster and easier, creating ROI for industry users by saving significant time and costs as well as enabling builds not possible before.
