Emona to Distribute Optomec LENS Systems for 3D Printed Metals and Aerosol Jet Systems for 3D Printed Electronics
Albuquerque, New Mexico – April 27, 2016: Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, today announced it signed a distribution agreement with Emona Instruments Pty. Ltd to expand sales of its solutions into Australia and New Zealand. Emona is the leading supplier of additive manufacturing systems and engineering teaching equipment in Australia and New Zealand.
Optomec Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight, high-performance devices used in industries such as aerospace, defense, consumer electronics and the Internet of Things (IoT). Aerosol Jet technology, which is scalable for high volume production applications, uses a patented process of aerodynamic focusing to precisely print electronic circuitry and functional components in dimensions ranging from as small as 10 microns to as large as several millimeters in a single pass.

Optomec LENS printers use the energy from a high-power laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. The LENS process can completely build new metal parts or add material to existing metal components for repair and hybrid manufacturing applications. LENS technology is available in standalone system configurations or as a modular print engine for integration with existing CNC automation platforms and robots.
