Optomec News & Events

With Optomec, the promise of high-volume additive manufacturing is a reality today, transforming how companies design, build and maintain critical parts and products and enabling new manufacturing possibilities.

The Unique Capabilities of Directed Energy Deposition

Webinar Overview:

Optomec AM technology enables manufacturers to not only print full 3D parts, but also to add materials onto existing 3D parts produced using conventional manufacturing methods such as CNC machining or injection molding. In addition, this AM technology provides production grade/production scale 3D printing of fully functional end-use devices in specific areas such as printed electronics and printed metals. In this webinar, Optomec will present the fundamentals of LENS Powder Fed Directed Energy Deposition technology for 3D printed metals, and Aerosol Jet technology for 3D printed electronics as well as examples of how these technologies are used to build, repair, and extend the useful life of aerospace components.

About the Presenter:

The moderator was Dr. Hooman Rezaei, President of the International Aircraft Engine Association
The webinar was hosted by Michigan State University, Department of Mechanical Engineering
The presenter was Ken Vartanian, VP Marketing Optomec
