Visitech to open new Texas factory by 2024
The company is reportedly anticipating its sales to double, by 2025, as a result
Visitech AS, a provider of high-end UV exposure subsystems enabling state-of-the-art imaging solutions for additive manufacturing, bioprinting, and direct imaging maskless lithography, is planning to build a factory in Dallas, Texas. The new factory will be able to produce its full line of projectors and subsystems for 3D printing and direct imaging applications, in 2024. As a result of this, the company is reportedly anticipating its sales to double by 2025.
According to Visitech, the growth in demand for additive manufacturing applications for DLP projectors has created the need for additional manufacturing capacity with an optimized supply chain for customers in North America. The company recently acquired Dallas DLP design house, Keynote Photonics, and announced the formation of Visitech Americas, a new subsidiary for sales, marketing, engineering, and product services in support of the rapidly growing additive manufacturing market in the USA.
“We have invested heavily in R&D and manufacturing capacity to develop the additive manufacturing market with our groundbreaking technology. This includes the recent introduction of our next-generation scrolling machine, the LRS-MCx 4K, which doubles our customers’ production capacity. This new facility demonstrates our commitment to our customers worldwide to support their growth plans and full product lifecycle,” said Oyvind Tafjord, Managing Director of Visitech, in Norway.
The company has over 20 years of proven manufacturing expertise in DLP high-capacity subsystems for the PCB and additive manufacturing industries. “Our speed and industrial durability are the result of working closely with our customers and leveraging Visitech’s electronics, mechanics, optics, and software expertise,” said Tafjord.
Visitech has nearly 15,000 units installed in machines, worldwide, in a range of applications, such as direct imaging for PCB lithography and advanced semiconductor packaging, 3D metrology, and high-performance display subsystems. This experience complements Visitech’s abilities in additive manufacturing applications – making the company a noteworthy contributor to the development of new technology for the consumer market, medical applications, and manufacturing industries alike.
“We see tremendous potential in a range of 3D printing applications and have participated in the explosive growth in this transformation”, said Adam Kunzman, CEO of Visitech Americas. “The Dallas-Fort Worth region provides an ideal location for talent, efficient customer access, and a business-friendly environment. We see this as an all-together competitive business advantage.”
