Xerox has acquired 3D printing company Vader Systems, a Buffalo NY area manufacturing start up run by father and son Zachary and Scott Vader. The company has now been relocated to the Xerox Webster campus outside of Rochester NY. Terms of the sale have not been disclosed.
“Manufacturing customers want to use 3-D printing, but the current offerings only serve the prototyping market well, not broad manufacturing,” Xerox said in a statement announcing the acquisition. “Xerox developed, acquired and partnered printing software and material technologies are expected to deliver the productivity, materials range and cost and design tools to enable part manufacturing.”
