- 3D Systems (DDD +0.2%) is acquiring a Xerox (XRX -0.5%) R&D group focused on solid ink engineering and product design for $32.5M in cash. The group is based out of Wilsonville, OR, and has 100+ engineers/contractors. (PR)
- 3D calls the deal an expansion of a partnership with Xerox that already gave birth to 3D's high-end ProJet printers. Xerox, the sole supplier of solid ink printing solutions, asserts the technology delivers better color print quality and produces far less waste than traditional color laser printing.
- 3D has already been paying attention to color quality. Two weeks ago, the company launched the ProJet 4500, which it calls the only "continuous-tone, full-color plastic 3D printer available on the market."
