Visitech AS, a company with headquarters in Drammen, Norway, and a provider of high-end UV exposure subsystems enabling state-of-the-art imaging solutions for additive manufacturing, bioprinting, and direct imaging maskless lithography, has formed ‘Visitech Americas’, based in Texas – a new subsidiary for sales, marketing, engineering, and product services in support of the rapidly growing additive manufacturing market in the United States, and the Americas. This formation is the result of long-lasting cooperation with its distributor, Keynote Photonics – a Dallas-based DLP design house and manufacturer of industrial projectors, which has now been acquired by Visitech. Keynote Photonics assets and staff will transition to new roles in the coming months.
“The Keynote Photonics team accelerated the explosive growth of the additive manufacturing market and our market-leading, high-performance portfolio of scrolling UV and IR printing subsystems. Our teams have worked seamlessly to create new products and to aid customers in getting their products into the market quickly and effectively,” said managing partner of Visitech AS, Oyvind Tafjord. Keynote Photonics has developed various DLP industrial solutions for customers in medical sectors, 3D scanning metrology, and advanced display systems that have been used in Olympic ceremonies, DNA analysis, and the first 8K Laser TV.
“We are thrilled to become part of the Visitech team after working closely together for several years,” said Adam Kunzman, founder of Keynote Photonics. “The strengths of both organizations will accelerate our customers’ efforts to create production-class machines that will transform manufacturing worldwide in the years to come. In addition, proximity to our customers with a full complement of manufacturing, engineering, and logistics disciplines allows us to be nimble to the market’s needs”.
