A partnership agreement has been announced by Objet Geometries, developer of inkjet-based, three-dimensional rapid prototyping systems and materials, for ACMA AB to sell its products in Scandinavia. Objet views Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland as an excellent market for its RP systems since there are many medium-to-small factories and manufacturers there, as well as large corporations who need to have a quality inkjet technology to produce accurate models quickly and reliably.
ACMA president and owner Ragnar Hasliger says he decided to work with Objet because of its extensive experience in inkjet technologies, and because of the appeal of its PolyJet™-based technology.
One recent Objet customer is Norway-based Vinn Design AS (formerly FEM Design AS), which develops and designs products for the electronics, satellite communications, medical and engineering industries. Vinn Design’s director of marketing, Rolf-Atle Tomassen, says the company invested in Object technology because of its ability to produce prototypes in every stage of product development quickly and accurately.
Nordic Light AB, which designs and manufactures high-performance energy-efficient display lighting fixtures, has also purchased an Objet system because it will speed product development and shorten its time to market.
