O Optomec Inc.and Delcam, an Autodesk company, have entered into a global sales partnership whereby Optomec will sell and support Delcam products in conjunction with sales of its Aerosol Jet five-axis systems for 3D-printed electronics.

The companies have been collaborating to enhance Delcam’s FeatureCAM software to support the Optomec Aerosol Jet since 2015, bringing together Delcam’s additive manufacturing software expertise and Optomec’s 3D-printed electronic technology to address next generation electronics manufacturing challenges. The end result enables Delcam software to create additive five-axis tool paths that drive Aerosol Jet systems to print sensors, antennas and other functional electronics virtually anywhere onto mechanical structures maximizing design and manufacturing flexibility for a new generation of smart devices.

“Through this collaboration, Delcam and Optomec have developed and are delivering world-class, production ready additive manufacturing solutions to meet next generation printed electronic product challenges” said Christian Briscoe, VP Western U.S. sales for Delcam. “We are excited about the possibilities.”

“The core synergies between Delcam and Optomec will help us achieve more than we could if working independently, said Mike O’Reilly, Optomec, director, Aerosol Jet product management. “Together, we are placing an emphasis on innovation and collaboration to solve next generation manufacturing challenges of smart devices for consumer electronics, automotive, medical and industrial internet of things (IoT) applications.”
