optomecWe’re of one-third of the way through 2016, and thus far, it’s been a quite great year for Optomec, an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based company specializing in making various professional-grade 3D printing systems that are compatible with electronic inks, a number of structural metal materials, and biological matter. Back in January, we covered Optomec’s new distribution partnership with the industrial 3D printing enabler Dragonfly, growing the reach of their aerosol jet innovation into Italy. About a month later, they turn it intod another distribution deal, this time with the additive making provider DETEKT Technologies Inc., that is now handling Optomec sales in both China and Taiwan. In 2015, we covered much like partnerships in Latin America and parts of Europe, and at the moment, Optomec shows no signs of slowing down their ever-growing global reach.

emonaOptomec has revealed yet another distribution deal, this time with Emona Instruments Pty. Ltd, a supplier of 3D printing solutions and engineering teaching equipment in Australia and New Zealand for of 35 years. With this new partnership, Emona can assist additional turn it into Optomec’s market in the two countries, distributing both their Aerosol Jet and Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) additive making systems. Having may already been utilized by a number of educational institutions and laboratories across Australia and New Zealand, Optomec was welcome with open arms by Emona Instruments.

“With Optomec’s built track record in Australia which include users such as CSIRO’s Lab22, Swinburne University of Technology, Deakin University, UNSW, and University of Queensland, we appear forward to the Emona /Optomec partnership additional assembling on this good results and reinforcing our position as the leaders in additive making in the region,” said Mark Breznik, the Managing Director at Emona Instruments.

Their patented aerosol jet innovation has enabled them to turn it into a few high end 3D printing equipment, such as the Aerosol Jet 5X printing system, that are capable of 3D printing easy electronics, sensors and antennas onto three-dimensional objects and surfaces. Their line of electronic 3D printing equipment are especially loved by those involved with aerospace, defense, consumer electronics, and actually products dealing with the Internet of Things (IoT). Their patented system uses aerodynamic focusing to exactly print both electronic circuitry and functional components, and is capable of printing in size as tiny as 10 microns.

Their LENS printing systems use high-powered laser energy to create up powdered metals layer by layer, a system that allows for for the making of new parts or adding to existing metal components for both repair or a hybrid making applications. The ability to 3D print onto existing parts that were manufactured by conventional methods sets Optomec’s LENS innovation ahead of the additive making pack. Their LENS innovation printing equipment are on the market as either a standalone system or a modular print engine, that is compatible with may already built CNC automation platforms and robots.

With over 200 industrial customers around the globe, Optomec is now appearing to expand their professional-grade 3D printing systems for both the Kiwis and those residing land down under. As they go on to partner with distributors on equite continent, Optomec is proving that their Aerosol Jet and LENS-based making systems are here for the long-haul, and may a fewday soon become the undisputed global industry standard for both electronics and metal 3D printing.
