Restoring Industrial Components with Directed Energy Deposition Saves Time and Costs

Restoring Industrial Components with Directed Energy Deposition Saves Time and Costs

Welding on a micron level to restore and repair parts at a fast pace and cost effective is the core of Directed Energy Deposition or DED, also called laser engineered net shaping or LENS (Optomec’s version of DED). It’s an additive manufacturing process in which focused thermal energy is used to fuse materials by melting […]

Functionally Graded Materials Are Key to Fast, Effective Multi-Material 3D Printing

A buzzword in the 3D printing industry lately has been “multi-material.” Desktop 3D printers have been released that are capable of printing with more than one material in one build, but industrial 3D printing also has a lot of multi-material development happening. This includes composite materials, such as fiber-reinforced polymers. But what Kevin Eckes, Ph.D, […]
