ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. Announces 3D Systems Printer Purchases

Stocks in this article: ARCW

DELAND, Fla., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCW; the "Company" or "ARC") announced that its division, 3D Material Technologies, LLC. ("3DMT"), recently purchased 3D Systems Corp. (NYSE: DDD) ProX™ direct metal sintering (DMS) printers from EMS, Inc, a 3D Systems reseller based in Tampa, FL.

With a build size of 250 x 250 x 300mm (9.8 x 9.8 x 11.8 inches), these new machines have the capability of making a wide variety of parts out of stainless steel, cobalt chrome, titanium, aluminum, and ceramics.

"The technology in the ProX machines is what attracted us to the 3D Systems equipment.  In particular, the ability to make stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, and alumina with fine powders, high-quality surface finishes, and thin walls complements our sister companies' Metal Injection Molding ("MIM") capabilities.  These are the capabilities that our medical, aerospace, automotive, and defense customers are demanding," said Ashely Nichols, General Manager of 3DMT.

"EMS is very excited to introduce 3D Systems latest DMS technology to 3DMT," stated Mark Kemper, President of EMS, Inc.  "We believe 3D Systems' DMS 3D Printers are a true game changer in additive manufacturing."

Continued Kemper, "We are also looking forward to representing 3D Systems complete line of 3D printers in 2014."

"Our ProX metal 3D printers deliver high quality, high density parts that are as strong as, if not stronger, than cast parts," said Kevin McAlea, Senior VP & GM, Production Printers, 3D Systems. "This high output quality is revolutionizing the metal parts industry by allowing creation of fully functional parts in hours, with efficient use of materials and unmatched freedom of design."

The addition of the ProX machines to 3DMT's already sizable 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing capabilities further expands ARC's ability to offer rapid prototyping and short run production to its global customer base.  3DMT remains focused on bridging the gap between design concept and production through the use of advanced technologies and engineering knowhow, to enable our customers to get to market quicker.
