Optomec has signed an agreement with Select Additive Technologies, a division of the Morris Group, Inc., making the full range of Optomec’s Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) 3D Metal Printing systems accessible through a large CNC machine tool distribution network in North America.
“Adding Optomec’s industry-leading LENS systems to our distributors’ existing lineup of CNC machine tools enhances our end-to-end suite of advanced solutions for precision metal part repair and production,” says Jeff Holtzapple, business development manager, Select Additive Technologies. “Optomec integrates decades of experience in directed energy deposition (DED) into its LENS metal additive manufacturing solutions, resulting in high-quality, affordable metal 3D printing solutions that make complex metal parts easier, more precise, efficient and affordable to produce and repair.”
A division of Morris Group, Inc., Select Additive Technologies specializes in the area of additive manufacturing. The organization brings additive manufacturing solutions to market via the Morris Group, Inc. owned distribution network, which provides customer service and partnerships with brands of machine tools, tooling, accessories and software.
“Having the Optomec LENS product lines represented by Select Machining Technologies is a huge milestone in helping metal additive manufacturing gain deeper penetration into the industrial mainstream,” says Dave Ramahi, Optomec president and CEO. “With more than 75 years of manufacturing experience, knowledge and customer support, the distribution network with which they work serves industrial companies from virtually every industry. We could not ask for a better partner to help increase our exposure and reach in the US.”
Select Additive Technologies will represent the full range of Optomec’s LENS systems, which use high-powered lasers to build structures layer by layer directly from powdered metals, alloys, ceramics or composites. LENS systems enable companies to cost-effectively repair, rework and manufacture fully dense, high-performance metal components with mechanical and fatigue properties.
In addition, the LENS 860 will be on display at RAPID-TCT in Detroit (May 21-23) in the Optomec booth (#517).
