3D Systems Corporation has acquired RenShape stereolithography print materials and Digitalis rapid manufacturing 3D printers from the Advanced Materials Division of Huntsman Corporation.
RenShape stereolithography print materials are a range of advanced materials designed to print durable, robust parts and prototypes with excellent accuracy, intricate reproduction of detail and high-quality surface finish.
RenShape’s print materials complement 3D Systems’ product offering and are ideal for printing snap-fit polypropylene and ABS-like parts as well as selectively coloured medical models on 3D Systems’ SLA printers.
Digitalis 3D printers are a new range of MEMS (Micro-electro-mechanical systems) rapid manufacturing printers capable of manufacturing large numbers of parts simultaneously at high speed and accuracy. These printers are currently in advanced stages of development and validation.
The RenShape and Digitalis acquisitions complement 3D Systems’ print materials technology and intellectual property portfolio while adding the Digitalis print engines to its printer family. 3D Systems plans to integrate these product lines into its growing rapid manufacturing and healthcare solutions portfolio.
According to Abe Reichental, President and CEO of 3D Systems, the acquisition is consistent with the company’s growth strategy, complements its technology and product portfolio, and is immediately accretive to its target operating model.
