The LENS® 450 brings industrial-strength metal 3D Printing technology to the laboratory and classroom
MAQcenter presents in Spain and Portugal the all-new LENS 450 system offers a low-cost entry to metal Additive Manufacturing. With a 100mm cubed working volume, 400W fiber laser and full LENS® control software, the LENS 450 gives the user the same process as the industry-proven LENS 850R and MR-7, all with a smaller footprint and lower cost.
LENS® systems utilize a high-power laser together with powdered metals to build fully dense structures directly from a 3-dimensional CAD solid model. The CAD model is automatically sliced into a tool-path, which instructs the LENS® machine how to build the part. The part is constructed layer by layer under the control of software that monitors a variety of parameters to ensure geometric and mechanical integrity. The LENS® process is housed in a chamber which is purged with argon such that the oxygen level stays below 10 parts per million to ensure there is no impurity pick-up during deposition. The metal powder is fed to the process by OPTOMEC's proprietary powder-feed system, which is able to flow small quantities of powder very precisely. When complete, the part is removed and can be heat-treated, Hot-Isostatic-Pressed, machined, or finished in any other manner.
