Optomec, the American company behind LENS additive manufacturing and Aerosol Jet Printing technology, has acquired Huffman LLC, a CNC and laser cladding machine supplier and service provider from Clover, South Carolina.
Though full terms of the acquisition remain undisclosed, Optomec has confirmed that this strategic move seeks to leverage Hoffman’s wealth of experience in the gas turbine market.
David Ramahi, president and CEO of Optomec comments:
“WITH THE HUFFMAN ACQUISITION, WE AIM TO EXPAND THE USE OF DED/LENS REPAIR FOR THE EXISTING INSTALLED BASE OF MORE THAN 100,000 GAS TURBINES AND ENGINES,”
He says, the company also hope to leverage “that expertise to drive greater adoption of cost-effective repairs for mainstream industrial applications.”
