Dragonfly to Distribute Optomec Laser Additive Manufacturing Systems in Italy
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 17, 2016 — Product and service provider Dragonfly SRL of Capua, Italy, will distribute Optomec Inc.'s LENS (laser-engineered net shaping) systems for 3D-printed metals and Aerosol Jet systems for 3D-printed electronics to industrial customers in Italy.
Dragonfly specializes in the additive manufacturing sector and is the first distributor to offer the products in Italy.
Optomec's LENS printers use a high-power (500-W to 4-kW) laser to build up structures one layer at a time directly from powdered metals. The 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 standalone system configurations or as a modular print engine for integration with existing computer-numerical-control automation platforms and robots.
Aerosol Jet printers provide high-resolution 3D printing capabilities required to manufacture smaller, lighter-weight devices used in industries such as aerospace, defense, consumer electronics and the Internet of Things.
