Mcor adds a plus to the Matrix making it 3 times faster and another step nearer to truly accessible 3D Printing
Stand P15, NEC, TCT Live 2012 Exhibition, Birmingham, September 25th, 2012: - Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of paper 3D printers in the world today announced the launch of the Matrix 300+, lowest cost, highest quality, most eco-friendly 3D printer that is now 3 times faster!
The Matrix 300+ extends the benefits of Mcor’s Matrix technology and further delivers on the vision of providing accessible 3D printing solutions. The Matrix is the only 3D printer in the world that can use A4/Letter paper to make 3D objects – the low cost, eco-way. And the ‘Matrix’ is already in use printing extraordinary things with clients such as the Royal College of Art, Florida State University and KCI Medical.
The Matrix 300+ has been re-designed to enable a faster turnaround on part production and so in turn putting even more parts into more hands at no extra cost. Mcor have implemented a Selectable Layer Thickness (S.L.T.) technique that allows the Matrix to run in two different modes, draft or presentation. The Matrix 300+ is also sold with enhanced software which reduces build time and simplifies the ‘weeding’ process. Mcor have also developed a new Matrix technique called V.V.D. – Variable Volume Deposition – this technique enables the production of more complex parts that are even stronger and more durable. And the 300+ continues to offer a low cost, eco-friendly option which is an ideal choice for use in an office or educational environment. “With the Matrix 300+, our customers can economically print high-definition durable parts in-house,” said Dr Conor MacCormack, Mcor Co-founder & CEO. “With a faster print speed and increased print capability, the new Matrix 300+ delivers even more value for engineering, education, AEC and packaging design applications.”
Mcor have been expanding its operations rapidly on all fronts in recent months; they have moved to a new HQ in Ireland, opened a second office in the US and, added key staff. The company also recently announced the Mcor IRIS which has been developed to build on the award-winning Matrix technology and maintain the extremely low cost and eco-friendly ethos while adding the one thing people really want for their models, full 600 dpi colour. “The Mcor Iris produces sharp vibrant prints; printing on to a pure white media produces better colour authenticity and reproduction when compared with other colour 3D printing technologies – we like to call it colour with soul.” stated Dr Conor MacCormack.
Mcor’s goal is to continue to provide accessible 3D printing solutions with many other products to roll out in the near future, “The mantra within Mcor is ‘unfettered innovation’, said Dr MacCormack. The Matrix 300+ and Iris are just the first in a series of exciting developments for the company moving forward.”
The Matrix 300+ will be available globally in late 2012. The new Matrix 300+ and parts made on the IRIS are on display this week at TCT Live 2012 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, Stand P15.
