Hammarskiöld has acted as acted legal adviser to US 3D Systems, Inc. in its acquisition of Swedish 3D printer manufacturer Wematte AB.
The acquisition of Wematter will broaden 3D Systems’ Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) portfolio. As a result of this acquisition, 3D Systems will be able to make SLS available to a broader range of customers with a high-reliability, affordable solution for the production of end-use parts. Wematter’s Gravity system only requires a standard power source and an ethernet connection which enables plug-and-play installation and can be operational in less than an hour from delivery.
“We continue to invest in our solution portfolio through strategic acquisitions that add unique technologies to enable rapid adoption of additive manufacturing in production environments” said Dr. Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO, 3D Systems.
