Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition
System Type: Directed Energy Deposition System
Description: Multiple powder-feed capabilities for deposition and full consolidation of complex components within a controlled inert gas environment.
This system provides a working envelope of 30 cm length by 30 cm width by 15 cm height. The Optomec system is capable of near-net fabrication of components and requires final machining. Although the system is capable of producing parts having complex geometries, it cannot produce geometries having significant projection or overhang without support.
