Optomec LENS component repair
The partnership with the Italian 3D printing service provider and consultant will bring Optomec’s flagship Aerosol Jet and LENS technology, which is already used in industries such as aerospace, defence and consumer electronics, to a new market. Optomec’s Aerosol Jet machines enable scalable high volume production of electronic circuitry and functional components whilst the LENS systems provide the unique advantage of being able to build upon structures with powders for both repair and hybrid applications.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Dragonfly to expand sales of Optomec products in Italy,” Michael Kardos, Optomec Vice President of World Wide Sales, explained. “Dragonfly is solely focused on the Additive Manufacturing sector and a perfect fit for introducing innovative products such as our LENS and Aerosol Jet systems to an untapped marketplace in Italy. Their consultative approach and experienced team will help insure a successful customer base.”
Claudio Giarda, Dragonfly CEO, added: “We are sure that the Italian market is ready to embrace Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics technology and LENS powered-metal fabrication technology. This perfectly completes Dragonfly’s offer and suits the current innovation needs for the development of new smart and connected products, as well as the demand for new industrial solutions to redefine how metal parts are produced, replaced and repaired.”
Optomec has gone from strength to strength in the industry, reporting a record year for sales last November, up over 80% compared to 2014 with an almost even split across both lines of additive technology.
