Inkbit’s expanded workspace will help cultivate innovation and further the company’s development
Medford, MA – August 24, 2021 – Inkbit, the company that built the first 3D printer driven by vision-based feedback control, announced the opening of a new office at One Cabot Road in Medford, Massachusetts. With upgraded systems and space, Inkbit will further expand operational capacity where the company will build and supply customers with its first-of-a-kind closed-loop feedback 3D printing ecosystem, the Inkbit Vista. With the additional space and upgraded building amenities provided by the new location, Inkbit’s ability to create and distribute the Inkbit Vista will significantly increase.
Inkbit’s new office provides 38,000 square feet of space, which is an upgrade from the previous 6,000 square foot property. This vastly larger space includes dedicated system assembly, materials research, and hardware R&D. For Inkbit customers and partners, the office also features an 8,100 square foot area designated for the Digital Factory with its own dedicated power and air lines for thorough testing and development of 3D printed parts, materials, and hardware.
“Inkbit is beginning a new stage of growth and we are enthralled with our new operational space,” said Davide Marini, CEO and Co-Founder of Inkbit. “This new office provides us with the ability to shift our internal focuses to growing our team and supplying customers with the tools necessary to continue our story of innovation.
