DMG MORI, leading manufacturer of machine tools, acquired a 30% stake in INTECH, India, by integrating the SLM technology machines with the OPTOMET software from INTECH.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Sridhar Balaram, CEO of INTECH said that OPTOMET can be applied to various keyAM technologies such as Direct Energy Deposition and Binder letting.
INTECH supplies software solutions not only for the LASERTEC SLM series from DMG MORI but also for other products and customers using powder bed technology.
The new OPTOMET software automatically calculates the optimal process parameters. This simplifies programming and results in a markedly improved surface quality as well as reproducible material properties. OPTOMET is a stepping stone towards accelerated industrialization of Additive Manufacturing, according to INTECH.
