Optomec, Viwa achieve distribution agreement for 3D metal printers

Optomec has announced it has reached a distribution agreement with Viwa to carry its LENS family of 3D metal printers in Mexico and Central America.

The LENS family can repair, rework and create metal components using super alloys, titanium and stainless steel as a turnkey 3D metal type of printer able to be integrated with other metal working tools.

“We are very happy to partner with Viwa to bring LENS technology to manufacturing market in Mexico and Central America,” Optomec Vice President of Worldwide Sales Michael Kardos said. “Viwa’s well-established expertise in the machine tool market and their excellent reputation makes them an ideal partner to reach a broad customer base in the region.”

Viwa was the first company to bring CNC machine tools to market in Mexico, and over the past 30 years has extended its reach throughout Central America.

“Adding LENS manufacturing technology to our product line follows our long history of introducing new and exciting metal working capabilities to the manufacturing industry in México and Central America,” Viwa Director General Roberto Jacobus said. “What’s especially exciting about the LENS process is that it can be adapted to our current line of CNC vertical machining centers bringing hybrid manufacturing capabilities to our customers, allowing them to produce parts which involve printing metal and then machining the resulting parts with a single setup on the same machine. The LENS process will provide value across their entire product life cycle, from printing new metal parts to repairing old broken parts.”
