Stratasys Strengthens 3D Printing in New Buyout

Polymer 3D printing solutions company Stratasys Ltd. has acquired Arevo’s technology portfolio, including its Intellectual Property (IP) estate. Previously, Arevo’s headquarters is in Silicon Valley, in California until it ceased operations last year.

The acquisition of the IP estate includes multiple foundational patents in carbon fiber printing and Z-strength improvement achieved by localized laser melting and roller compaction. Moreover, the buyout also includes the in-situ and AI build monitoring and hardware design.

Thus, the adoption of this technology in Stratasys FDM® print systems enables Stratasys to extend its addressable manufacturing applications for its customers.

More Reliable, Consistent Builds

Stratasys will be able to accelerate usage of fused deposition modeling (FDM) printing applications. Specifically, eliminating customer adoption barriers associated with requirements. Moreover, it suits higher performing parts including strength and isotropy. As well as more reliable and consistent builds, and improved system throughput for better parts economics.

“The technology we’ve acquired allows for increasingly improved isotropy of physical properties in FDM parts. This opens up additional use for customers,” said Rich Garrity, Stratasys’ Chief Industrial Business Officer.

In addition, Garrity said, “This investment continues our commitment to focusing our organic and inorganic innovation on applications and use cases that provide real value to our manufacturing customers. Thus, ensuring that Stratasys will continue to be the most relevant and attractive partner moving forward.”

This acquisition of assets reflects Stratasys’ clear strategy to create practical value for its customers by investing in innovation, through both organic R&D as well as the acquisition of technology and IP. The 2,600 total granted and pending patents in its portfolio differentiates Stratasys from the rest of the industry.
