Materialise Acquires CENAT Embedded Software Platform

The transaction will allow the company to add enhanced quality control to its 3D printing platform.

Materialise, a provider of additive manufacturing (AM) software, has acquired CENAT. The company is a developer of embedded computing software and solutions for AM control systems.

This transaction, according to the company, will enable Materialise to add new functionality for quality control to its open platform for AM. The platform already includes tools for file preparation, complete automation and control systems. This added quality control will be suited for industries such as aerospace and medical.

“We are very proud to welcome the CENAT team to the Materialise Group. We began collaborating with CENAT in response to a growing demand for a greater control over quality for the manufacturing end-use parts, both within our own AM facilities as well as in those of our customers. As the system being developed was complementary to the broad range of solutions in our Open Software Platform for 3D Printing, the decision was made to bring the CENAT system in-house and to the market as part of our broad range of software solutions for industrial additive manufacturing,” says Fried Vancraen, founder and CEO of Materialise.
