ExOne buys industrial microwave maker, machining shop

ExOne (XONE +2.1%) has bought MWT, a German maker of industrial microwaves, and the assets of Machin-A-Mation, a Michigan-based machining shop. Between them, the acquisitions cost $9.8M.

The 3D printer maker says MWT's microwaves will be used to strengthen its sand printing offerings, and that Machina-A-Mation, located near an ExOne production service center focused on aerospace/shipbuilding clients, will help it "address the finishing requirements for complex parts which are cast from [ExOne's] 3D printed sand molds."

MWT's microwave ops will be folded into ExOne's Augsburg, Germany manufacturing ops.
