UPCOMING: 2024 Practicum on Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials


Capability Details

  • Manufacturer: Optomec
  • 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.
