Ricoh Japan inks a deal with EnvisionTEC

EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of desktop and full-production 3D printers and materials, has signed a dealership agreement with The Ricoh Japan Co., Ltd., part of the imaging and electronics company based in Tokyo.

Ricoh Japan will begin selling 3D printers, materials, training and support in Japan through its agreement with EnvisionTEC GmbH, the German arm of EnvisionTEC’s global family of companies.

The Ricoh Group is now focused on developing a 3D printer business that uses this know-how to provide broader 3D printing services.

Ricoh Japan has decided to partner with EnvisionTEC because of the high precision and smooth surface finish delivered by EnvisionTEC’s 3D printers using the company’s patented DLP and 3SP technologies.

Further, Ricoh Japan is to exhibit at the 28th Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo held at Tokyo Big Sight June 21-23, where EnvisionTEC technology will be on display.
