Z Corp. opened new regional offices on April 3 on Hong Kong Island and in Yokohama, Japan. The company also expanded the largest rapid prototyping channel in the Asia Pacific region to 25 authorized dealers by signing Euroasia Enterprises Ltd (China), GDL Software Science & Technology (China), ETC Service Co. (Thailand), ARKK Australia & New Zealand Pty Ltd (Australia), TechniGraphics Inc. (India), Hankook Delcam Ltd (Korea) and E.Mation Technologies Pte Ltd (Singapore) as partners.

The new offices support escalating 3D printing demand as companies in the region work to make their product development processes more efficient. One hundred twenty-six new Asia Pacific customers invested in Z Corp. 3D printers last year, including HTC (Taiwan), BenQ (Taiwan), Samsung (Korea), New Balance (China), Sony (Japan) and Toyota (Japan). Many of these customers purchased the full-color Spectrum Z(TM)510 3D Printing System, the only high-definition color 3D printer on the market, helping boost Z Corp.'s 2005 sales revenue in the region by 56 percent over 2004.

New service and support for Asia Pacific region

Z Corp. is introducing new services to the region along with the new offices. Customers can now receive same time-zone service and support and the convenience of a sales showroom in Hong Kong. Channel partners can obtain certification training.

"In addition to last year's success, we saw more strong growth in the first quarter of this year," said Tuan Tran, director of Asia Pacific sales for Z Corp. "This tells us that customers are spreading the word about the Z Corp. difference, including unsurpassed speed, color, affordability and high definition. Asia is the world's manufacturing center, and the region is benefiting tremendously from the ability to create prototypes on demand throughout the product development and engineering processes to bring better products more quickly to market."

Companies use Z Corp. 3D printers to turn digital designs into 3D physical models as easily as 2D printers generate documents. Manufacturing companies and their suppliers use 3D printing for concept models, presentation models, functional testing, finite element analysis and metal casting. Companies in architecture, education, geographic information systems (GIS) and medicine also depend on 3D printing for their work.
