ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Additive manufacturing systems provider Optomec will integrate its LENS Print Engine into Tongtai Machine & Tool Co.’s AMH-350 vertical milling machine.

“Partnering with one of Taiwan’s largest machine tool companies is a major milestone for Optomec in our efforts to expand the benefits of additive manufacturing,” said Dave Ramahi, president and CEO of Optomec. “The new Tongtai hybrid additive manufacturing machine will lower costs to accelerate industrial adoption of metal additive manufacturing in Asia.”

The AMH-350 is a high-accuracy, five-axis machining center that reduces setups and increases accuracy for multisided and complex parts. The LENS line of 3D metal printers has been used in industry for over two decades to cost-effectively repair, rework and manufacture high-performance metal components in materials such as titanium, stainless steel, carbides and nickel-based superalloys.

“The brand recognition for LENS, along with Optomec’s successful track record in metal additive manufacturing, were key factors in our decision to integrate the LENS Print Engine into our machines,” said Chairman Yen Jui-Hsiung of Tongtai. “Our partnership with Optomec will enable our customers to cost-effectively integrate this functionality into their manufacturing processes.”

TongTai manufactures horizontal and vertical turning centers, tapping and milling centers, vertical machining centers, and high-speed machining centers. Optomec is a manufacturer of production-grade 3D printers.
