Stratasys Acquires RPS

The second large scale deal publicized in just three months, Stratasys has set its sights on acquiring RP Support (RPS) to further expand their product offerings and capabilities. Similar to Origin (also recently acquired by Stratasys), RPS also creates Stereolithography (SLA) machines for their customers.

RPS recently released the Neo series 3D printers, providing greater accessibility for new customers of SLA technology. In the past, Stratasys took a crack at designing an SLA system. The V650 Flex, although an incredible engineering feat for the company, proved unpopular and a difficult investment for newcomers of SLA technology. As the V650 is being phased out (for current users, the machines will be supported for the next several years), the Neo 3D printer range will be deployed in its place for new and existing SLA customers.

The printers produced by RPS have a fantastic reputation for durability and repeatability in quality of models. Formula 1 dubs the machines their number one work platform; just one of many testaments to the rigorous standards these machines meet and surpass. During their consideration of the acquisition, Stratasys put the Neo printers and other systems to the test, having RPS build models designed for failure on most additive machines. The reputation was solid, and Stratasys’ search to seek out any flaws came up empty.
