Emona Instruments has been announced as the distributor of the Optomec range of production-grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D-printed metals and 3D-printed electronics in Australia and New Zealand.
Optomec Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight, high-performance devices used in industries such as aerospace, defense, consumer electronics and the Internet of Things (IoT). Aerosol Jet technology, which is scalable for high-volume production applications, uses a patented process of aerodynamic focusing to precisely print electronic circuitry and functional components in dimensions ranging from as small as 10 microns to as large as several millimetres in a single pass.
Optomec LENS printers use the energy from a high-power laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. The LENS process can completely build new metal parts or add material to existing metal components for repair and hybrid manufacturing applications. LENS technology is available in stand-alone system configurations or as a modular print engine for integration with existing CNC automation platforms and robots.
“With Optomec’s established track record in Australia, including users such as CSIRO’s Lab22, Swinburne University of Technology, Deakin University, UNSW and University of Queensland, we look forward to the Emona/Optomec partnership further building on this success and reinforcing our position as the leaders in additive manufacturing in the region,” said Mark Breznik, managing director at Emona Instruments.
