Mcor Technologies to Help SolidWorks World 2015 Participants Save 80% on Prototyping Costs

Rising 3D printer material costs are straining budgets and limiting use of the technology at commercial and educational organizations.

DUNLEER, Ireland, Jan. 21, 2015 -- Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper-based 3D printers, announced today that they will help SolidWorks World 2015 participants save 80% on their prototyping costs and create new and profitable revenue streams with Mcor's full-color SDL (Selective Deposition Lamination) paper-based 3D printers, in booth 407.


Rising 3D printer material costs are straining budgets and limiting use of the technology at commercial and educational organizations. Mcor's material costs are 10-20% of other technologies' costs, and therefore, the total cost of ownership over five years can save hundreds of thousands of dollars. This low cost enables wider accessibility of the technology and therefore, greater innovation.

Mcor 3D printers create complex, durable and stable physical 3D models from standard sheets of copy paper. Mcor 3D printed models can be tapped, threaded, hinged, made water resistant and flexible. They can even be disposed of in the recycling bin for cradle-to-grave sustainability. The only ones to include the global-standard ICC (International Color Consortium) color map, Mcor 3D printers produce the industry's most accurate and realistic color.

For 17 years, SolidWorks World has been the premier annual training and networking event for the SolidWorks user community.

What:

*New Mcor technology announcements, demonstration of the Mcor IRIS, full color paper-based 3D printer, display of Mcor 3D printed models and discussions with Mcor senior management in booth 407.
*Mcor will accept on-site applications for certified resellers of its unique SDL 3D printing technology.

When: February 8-11, 2015

Where: Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, AZ

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
