Just last month we covered news that Zecotek was working on a 3D digital display for 3D printers. The display will allow designers to view their design in 3D prior to sending it to the printer.
Now, Zecotek is taking it a step farther, announcing that they are designing a unique 3D printer which will offer commercial and technical advantages over existing 3D printers. The company is working with LT-Pykal of Yerevan, Armenia to bring this new printer to market.
“By combining our vast experience in laser technology and high precision electro-mechanical devices Zecotek and LT-Pyrkal are exploring novel designs for a compact and high speed 3D printer,” explained Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. “Our technical expertise has allowed our partnership to explore new and more efficient methods of printing 3 dimensional objects with a large spectrum of materials. We are testing components of a compact, high speed 3D printer to be used in rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing, as well as the associated software interface and look forward to working with LT-Pyrkal to move this project forward.”
While very few details have been announced, surrounding the new printer, it will be used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in many industries, according to the official press release.
