We recently announced that we entered into a distribution agreement for North America with voxeljet technology GmbH, a leading provider of ultra high-speed 3D production printers for large patterns used for precision metal parts castings in a variety of transportation and healthcare applications.  Separately, we announced plans to install a VX800 large format 3D printer in support of our 3Dproparts™ service, expanding our custom parts foundry offerings to include large PMMA patterns.
“We are pleased to add voxeljet, an innovator in ultra high-speed large format, industrial 3D printers to our solutions portfolio,” said Kevin McAlea, 3D Systems VP, Rapid Manufacturing Solutions. “voxeljet printers expand our ability to offer casting users accurate, stable and durable PMMA parts while providing foundries a viable alternative to traditional pattern making.”
“Having 3D Systems, the leader in 3D content-to-print solutions, as our distribution partner in one of the most attractive marketplaces, is a big step for completing our global dealer network,” said Rudolf Franz, COO voxeljet technology.
We plan to showcase the 3D printing capabilities available through this relationship with voxeljet at the upcoming RAPID 2011 Exhibition in Minneapolis, Minnesota May 24th -26th, 2011 in booths 311 and 1113.
