Optomec is offering a variety of opportunities to learn about the latest breakthroughs in 3D printed metals and printed electronics and to interact with technology experts, users and partners. A summary of these opportunities at AMUG follows:
- Tuesday April 10 at 3:30 p.m.: “The Quiet Transition to Additive Manufacturing in Series Production” by Ken Vartanian, Optomec VP of Marketing. In this presentation, Ken will discuss a variety of less well known AM applications currently used in production for consumer electronics, structural health monitoring, and repair/remanufacturing;
- Wednesday April 11 at 3:15 p.m.: “Powder Bed Fusion vs. Directed Energy Deposition: A Case Study in Speed” by Lucas Brewer, Optomec LENS Applications Manager. In this presentation, Lucas will compare capabilities of Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and LENS Directed Energy Deposition (DED), where they each apply best, and results from an independent benchmark study comparing performance and cost for these two metal 3D printing technologies;
- Thursday April 12 at 3:30 p.m.: “Functionalizing Structures via Aerosol Jet 3D Printed Electronics”, by Bryan Germann, Optomec Aerosol Jet Product Manager In this presentation Bryan will discuss how Aerosol Jet technology is utilized in high volume consumer electronics applications, structural health monitor, and 3D semiconductor packaging.
Optomec LENS 3D hybrid technology combines a rugged CNC automation platform with industry-proven LENS technology, lowering acquisition cost to bring metal additive manufacturing capabilities to a broader market. This LENS product line includes four models each designed to reduce manufacturing process times and costs while enabling improved end product performance. The additive only, open atmosphere model with a build envelope of 500x300x500 mm has an entry price of around $300,000.
AMUG is a global community focused on accelerating the education and advancement of additive manufacturing and 3D Printing. The conference brings together over 2,000 engineers, designers, managers, and educators from around the world to share expertise, best practices, challenges, and application developments in additive manufacturing.
