Manufacturing and Industrial
The most innovative organisations – from automotive, industrial machinery, aerospace and defense to footwear, sporting goods, consumer goods, consumer electronics and medical equipment – rely on 3D printing and rapid prototyping throughout the product design and development process and across the organization to accelerate time to market, cut costs, improve designs and win new business.
- Mcor 3D printers are the best choice for concept modeling, packing design and ergonomics testing due to the staggering low cost of materials, so you can iterate your designs early and often, focusing your attention on the design, unhindered by costs.
- The cost per model is 10–20% of competing technologies and the ongoing cost is about one-fifth of any other 3D printing technology.
Full Color Unleashes New Possibilities
- No need to spend precious time and money painstakingly painting parts to imitate the end product. The photorealistic color 3D printing capability of Mcor 3D printers makes them ideal for presentation models, facilitating communication with colleagues and clients; solar, temperature and finite element analysis (FEA) to identify and prevent design flaws earlier; sales and marketing to bring lifelike replicas of products to meetings, tradeshows, focus groups, and to photograph for marketing campaigns before the final product is available.
- Mcor 3D printers are the only ones with the ICC (International Color Consortium) profile for unmatched WYSIWYG color accuracy.
- 5760 x 1440 x 508dpi any color any time (ACAT) color is consistent with the color on your screen, from part to part and on undercuts and sidewalls.
Tough, Durable, Professional Prototypes
- Mcor prototypes are incredibly durable, even without coating.
- Models won’t warp with time, light or changes in temperature.
- They can be tapped, drilled, threaded and made water resistant after just a quick dip.
- Write directly on models during design reviews.
- Resolution is 12μ, 12μ, 100μ (0.0004 in, 0.0004 in, 0.004 in)
Low-Cost Investment and Sand Casting, Patterns and Moulds
- Mcor’s paper 3D printing technology provides distinctive versatility in the industry to produce both investment and sand casting patterns, at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods and other 3D printing technologies.
- The casting pattern is 3D printed out of paper directly from a PC on an Mcor 3D printer, and enables you to directly print complex casting patterns very affordably and much faster than conventional complex methods.
- The patterns closely resemble wood, feel very smooth and are robust. They are suitable for casting low temperature metals, such as gold, silver, zinc and magnesium, and very high temperature metals, such as aluminum and steel.
