Optomec, one of the leading global supplier of production-grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals, recently signed an agreement with Select Additive Technologies – a division of the Morris Group, Inc., allowing the latter to distribute its Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) 3D printing systems to one of the largest CNC machine tool distribution networks in North America.
Select Additive Technologies will leverage its expertise in the additive manufacturing technology and bring its AM solutions to market via the Morris Group, Inc. owned distribution network. The Morris Group has a strong reputation for providing excellent customer service and long-time partnerships with leading brands of machine tools, tooling, accessories, and software.
Speaking about its partnership with Optomec, Jeff Holtzapple, Business Development Manager of Select Additive Technologies said, “Adding Optomec’s industry-leading LENS systems to our distributors’ existing lineup of CNC machine tools enhances our end-to-end suite of advanced solutions for precision metal part repair and production. Optomec integrates decades of experience in directed energy deposition (DED) into its LENS metal additive manufacturing solutions, resulting in high-quality, affordable metal 3D printing solutions that make complex metal parts easier, more precise, efficient and affordable to produce and repair.”
According to Mr. Dave Ramahi, President and CEO of Optomec, “Having the Optomec LENS product lines represented by Select Machining Technologies is a huge milestone in helping metal additive manufacturing gain deeper penetration into the industrial mainstream. With more than seventy-five years of manufacturing experience, knowledge and customer support, the distribution network with which they work serves industrial companies from virtually every industry. We could not ask for a better partner to help increase our exposure and reach in the US.”
Select Additive Technologies will now represent the full range of Optomec’s LENS systems, which use high-powered lasers to build structures layer by layer directly from powdered metals, alloys, ceramics or composites. LENS systems enable companies to cost-effectively repair, rework and manufacture fully dense, high-performance metal components with excellent mechanical and fatigue properties.
