Nanodimension is on acquisition spree. The 3D printing firm has recently acquired an artificial intelligence company, a move that several people questioned. Why would they question it? Well, the question is why would a 3D printing firm acquire an artificial intelligence company? The firm notes that it can use various aspects of automation to add value to its 3D printing processes and firm.
The next acquisition was with NanoFabrica Ltd. Not too many people would be asking about the NanoFabica acquisition, at least besides the usual questions when it comes to acquisitions. But what is NanoFabrica? Let’s find out.
Details on NanoDimension and NanoFabrica Acquisition
According to a recent press release, NanoFabrica is a leader in technology and turn-key systems for precise 3D printing. Again, that seems more up Nanodimension’s alley, a leading 3D printing technology firm acquiring another to gain more skills, expertise, and knowledge, in addition to potential customers and diversification of revenues.
This is another small acquisition for NanoDimension with NanoFabrica shareholders obtaining around $55 million to $60 million. The deal would note that a little less than half of the total payout would be in cash based on certain milestones and requirements, with NanoFabrica’s founders also staying with NanoDimension for a certain duration post acquisition.
