Cincinnati Inc. acquires New Valence Robotics
Harrison, Ohio-based Cincinnati Inc. (CI), which makes large-scale additive manufacturing machines, has completed its acquisition of the Boston-based 3-D printer maker New Valence Robotics, also known as NVBots. NVBots’ small-scale printers give companies the opportunity to make a “print preview” of a product before printing it on CI’s large-scale models.
Carey Chen, CI’s president, CEO and vice chairman, said the merger opens new possibilities for both businesses. CI has been involved with BAAM (Big Area Additive Manufacturing).
“NVBots naturally complements CI’s capabilities with smaller-scale additive manufacturing systems, the growing ability to print in a wide array of materials and automated solutions, including cloud-based management software,” he said.
