  • Reading time: less than a minute

3D Systems Corp. and DSM Desotech Inc. are intending to develop and jointly market non-liquid stereolithography (SL) hardware, software and materials for rapid tooling and direct and indirect in-line manufacturing processes. “”With our recent acquisition of OptoForm SARL, additional opportunities are opening up in solid imaging technology,”” said Grant Flaharty, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at 3D Systems. “”We believe that the combination of 3D Systems’ cutting-edge hardware and DSM’s paste and composites materials — as well as metals and ceramics — will expand applications for SL technology into new areas of tooling and manufacturing.””

On Feb. 12, 3D Systems announced it acquired OptoForm, a French company that developed stereolithography systems using paste materials. 3D Systems provides solid imaging products and services that substantially reduce the time and cost required to design, test and manufacture products.
