Xerox asserts the companies strengthen its sizable existing workers' comp. solutions, such as those offered by its CompIQ unit.

    • 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."

    • Xerox states CPAS' software is used to manage pensions for 2M+ people worldwide. It'll be offered as both a standalone solution, and as part of Xerox's HR outsourcing services solutions.
    • Much like Lexmark, Xerox has been busy trying to diversify away from a slumping printing/copying hardware business. Services made up 55% of Q2 revenue.
    • Shares are rallying today thanks to an upgrade to Buy from Citi, which is upbeat about the potential for Obamacare to lift Xerox's healthcare-related sales.
