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.


*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

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
