kemiqfeatured23D printing isn’t just a technology that is catching on in a few select countries. Sure the United States, China, and several other larger West European nations have been leading the way, but the technology has really begun to catch on globally. We have seen 3D printer manufacturers emerge on just about every continent. Today we get word of one Turkish company, called KEMiQ, which has developed a very high quality FFF-based 3D printer. The company looks to begin mass producing and hopefully distributing these machines worldwide very soon.

“Kemiq is an electronics and personalized innovation and design firm based in Istanbul, Turkey,” Cahit Oğün Onat of Kemiq tells 3DPrint.com. “As a fairly new brand, we aim to make a name for ourselves in the global market. ‘Kemiq Q1’ is the first 3D Printer we developed in that route. The Q1 project is on track for general production soon, we are in the pre-sale stage for Turkey.”

Priced at $2800, the printer itself is a beautiful presentation, taking on a look not all that similar to other machines you will find in existence today. Ready to print out of the box, it is built using aluminum, stainless steel, brass, POM and FR4 parts, to give it a high quality look and feel. You can see some more specifications for the Q1 below:

  • Product Dimensions: 495 x 516 x 612 mm
  • Weight: 18kg
  • Electrical: 100-240 V ~ 2, 50-60 Hz, 24 V DC @15

  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.4mm
  • Positioning Accuracy X/Y: 1.5 microns
  • Minimum Single Motion Sensitivity: 1.5 microns

The printers come with with a variety of different face plates that can be tailored to a specific look. These include a gun metal finish, leather-like finish, or a wood-like appearance. While this printer has been on pre-sale in Turkey with mass production soon to start, the company also tells us that they are working on yet other 3D printers. Also the company suggests using their specially optimized Q-filaments which are designed to create the best prints on the Q1 printer.

“Besides the Q1, we are continuing on development for a smaller and more portable scale 3D printer models and DLP printing tech,” Onat tells us.

It should certainly be interesting to see what KEMiQ comes up with and how well these printers sell, not only in Turkey, but worldwide. What do you think about the KEMiQ Q1? Discuss in the Kemiq Q1 3D printer forum thread on 3DPB.com.
