We just announced the acquisition of Huntsman Corporation’s RenShape® stereolithography print materials and its Digitalis® rapid manufacturing 3D printer product line.
Huntsman has been a global provider of RenShape® stereolithography, a portfolio of advanced materials formulated to print durable, robust parts and prototypes with outstanding accuracy, intricate reproduction of detail and a high-quality surface finish. These materials complement our product offering and are ideal for printing snap-fit polypropylene and ABS like parts and selectively colored medical models on 3D Systems’ SLA® printers.
Digitalis® is a new MEMS (Microelectromechanical systems) rapid manufacturing printer currently in advanced stages of development and validation that is capable of manufacturing large numbers of parts simultaneously at high speed and accuracy. This acquisition complements our print materials technology and intellectual property portfolio and adds the Digitalis® print engine to our printer family. We plan to integrate these product lines into our growing rapid manufacturing and healthcare solutions portfolio.
“We are pleased to deliver the benefits of Huntsman’s complementary performance print materials and printers to our customers worldwide,” said Abe Reichental, President and CEO of 3D Systems. “This acquisition is consistent with our growth strategy, complements our technology and product portfolio, and is immediately accretive to our target operating model.”
