Stratasys Completes Origin Acquisition
Stratasys has completed its acquisition of Origin, adding Origin’s Programmable PhotoPolymerization additive manufacturing process to its capabilities.
Stratasys Ltd. has completed its acquisition of Origin, accelerating its expansion into mass-production additive manufacturing with Origin’s software-centric Programmable PhotoPolymerization digital light processing solution for production-oriented polymer applications.
“The completion of this acquisition marks an important milestone for Stratasys, positioning us to generate meaningful incremental revenue from a wide range of new market opportunities for mass production,” says Stratasys CEO Yoav Zeif. “I’m confident that Origin’s innovative solutions will be a key contributor to strong company growth beginning in 2021 and help us further realize our strategic goal to fortify our leadership position as the ‘first choice’ for polymer 3D printing.”
As the company previously indicated on Dec. 9, 2020, Stratasys expects the impact of the acquisition on its diluted non-GAAP earnings per share to accelerate its growth rate and be slightly dilutive to non-GAAP earnings per share in 2021, and accretive to non-GAAP earnings per share by 2023.
Analyzing directed energy deposition and powder-bed fusion provides a thorough understanding of the extra machining necessary for a “near net shape” versus a “net shape” manufacturing process.
Studies show that thin-walled additvely manufactured support structures may not be as good for machine tools as they might seem.
When Precision Metal Products purchased its first 3D printer last year, the company hoped to collapse both tooling costs and lead times. But the technology’s impact is reaching core business operations, enabling the shop to focus on higher-margin, lower-volume production.
