Artec Group and Ottobock Sign Distribution Agreement for Artec 3D Scanners

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Jul 10, 2014 -- Artec Group, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional 3D software and hardware, announces today the closing of a distribution agreement with Ottobock, a market leader in the field of orthopedics. Under this partnership, Ottobock will resell Artec 3D scanners for prosthesis manufacturing. The first Artec 3D scanners have been delivered to Ottobock and staff has received applications and sales training by Artec specialists.

As with the digitization of photography ten years ago, the arrival of 3D technology in everyday activities is unstoppable. Medicine in general and orthopedics and prosthetics, in particular, are good examples of how 3D solutions advance scientific and technological progress. Increasingly, orthopedists use 3D technology before creating a plaster cast to assure a higher level of quality, precision, adaptability and ease of use.

Artec manufactures 3D scanners that analyze real-world objects and gather data on shapes, which is then used to create a 3D physical replica. Artec offers the only handheld scanners that are lightweight, precise, and able to capture objects quickly, in high resolution and vibrant color. Ottobock is reselling both Artec's Eva and Spider 3D scanners.

The Artec Eva scanner provides fast, accurate scanning in color and requires no markers and no calibration. It digitizes objects quickly in high resolution and vivid colors, offering almost unlimited application possibilities. Artec Spider is a new 3D scanner, which is specifically designed for CAD users. It is perfect for reverse engineering, product design, quality control and mass production.

"3D technology is the future of orthopedic prosthesis because it facilitates the prosthetists' work," said Dr. Hans Dietl, CFO of Ottobock. "3D scanning shortens the production time and improves the quality of the final product. We consider the Artec 3D Scanner to be the ideal solution for our products and services."

"We are pleased with the confidence that Ottobock, one of the most important and innovative players in the orthopedics industry, has placed in us," notes Artyom Yukhin, president and CEO of Artec Group. "Ottobock is an expert in meeting the needs of amputees around the world. Our 3D scanners are multi-functional -- whether used in medical, historic monument conservation, industrial applications, etc. The partnership is confirmation of our commitment to ensuring quality of our 3D scanners. A reliable partner like Ottobock enables Artec to better align our scanners to meet the needs of professional users."
