Xerox goes 3D Printing!

vader systems

Xerox has announced a move into metal 3D printing with the acquisition of New York-based start-up, Vader Systems.

The company hasn’t disclosed specific details on the deal, which was announced at Xerox 2019 Investor Day, but says it is aiming to tap into a total addressable market of 8 billion USD as part of its three-year innovation roadmap.
It also means the company is investing in Vader’s lucrative liquid metal jet printing technologies.

Xerox and Vader Systems declined to provide further details on the acquisition or the longer term strategy for 3D printing covered by Joanne Collins Smee and Steve Hoover during the investor day.

Janos Veres, the leader of the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) Novel and Printed Electronics Program at Xerox, has stated that their work also extends to other Industry 4.0 technologies.

In addition to Vader’s metal technology, Xerox also stated it will be looking at the high speed plastics printing market with both plastics and metals expected to move into product commercialisation this year.

Step by step all major Printing companies are moving into 3D Printing, HP, Canon, Océ, Ricoh. But it is a bumpy road! 3D is NOT 2D with an additional dimension. It requires different knowledge, different software, post-processing and integration in factory lay-out etc.

We look forward how Xerox will move on in this fascinating industry.

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT

Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The industry is experiencing a strong shift towards industrial processes, standards and the application of latest technologies in the past years. It is now important to perform the next step towards the digitalization of all processes and the availability of data resources along the process chain. Additive Manufacturing on the other hand as well becomes an industrial technology. What started as a rapid prototyping technology then became a media and hobby manufacturers hype finally approaches the factories of the world. While processes, material availability and productivity are getting adult, a crucial lack remains unsolved: realizing integrated IT infrastructures in order to bring together conventional and additive manufacturing – this is especially valid when applying Additive Manufacturing for industrial applications. The presentation will showcase actual developments and applications of AM, “Industrie 4.0” and integrated process chains following the idea of “Connected, Adaptive Production”.
