For 20 years, Optomec has been at the forefront in delivering Additive Manufacturing (AM) solutions targeted at industry’s most challenging needs. The company has invested more than $50 million developing its proprietary solutions for 3D Printed Metal and 3D Printed Electronics, resulting in a comprehensive Intellectual Property portfolio that includes more than 60 patents issued and a wealth of enabling materials and process knowledge.

Optomec’s installed base of 500 Industrial 3D printers includes more than 200 LENS® machines for 3D Printed Metal, where Optomec was first to market with a DED (Directed Energy Deposition) based solution. These metal printers are used for a range of high ROI production applications including short-run manufacturing, upfront wear coatings and rebuild of worn or damaged components. The solution compares favorably versus other metal printing solutions such as powder bed fusion and binder jetting.

Additionally, Optomec has fielded almost 300 of its patented Aerosol Jet® systems for 3D printed electronics. These machines are used in production for applications including high-density 3D semiconductor packaging and directly integrated 3D antenna and sensors, for industry leaders in consumer electronics, medical device and mil-aero markets.
