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 standalone system configurations or as a modular print engine for integration with existing CNC automation platforms and robots.
