Mcor Expands in US, Europe and Asia with New Sales Channels and Increased Global Staffing
Worldwide demand for 3D printing spurs growth, company to ship industry’s first full-colour desktop 3D printer in October
DUNLEER, IRELAND, Sept. 28, 2016 – Mcor, the leader in industrial full-color 3D printing, today announced continued expansion into global markets. The company is increasing its sales channels with the addition of new distributors across the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, Taiwan and Korea. To meet strong demand for its printers, the company is ramping up staffing levels in the United States, Ireland and Korea by 30 percent over the next six months, filling openings in engineering, design and customer support.
The company is also set to ship the award-winning Mcor ARKe in October. The ARKe, the world’s first desktop, full color, paper-based 3D printer, is a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for educational, manufacturing, architectural and fine arts applications. The ARKe now includes significant feature enhancements, including:
More Colours: The printer now renders more than two million measured colours, making it possible to achieve true photorealistic output. With its advanced ink formulation, improved paper and enhanced software algorithms, the printer offers the most colours in the industry.
Increased Strength: With the use of a new ‘Power’ adhesive, objects are twice as stiff as parts from previous printers, creating items with advanced functionality for classroom, industrial or consumer use.
Enhanced Software: Enables users to access professional features to assist with file preparation and colour and texture enhancements. This ensures the most realistic objects from your screen can be printed, boasting true colour and surface qualities.
“Given the market is moving towards using cost-effective yet professional quality 3D printers, we made strategic growth decisions to support sales and customer activity,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies. “Our goal is to put a 3D printer in every classroom, office, artist studio and manufacturing space, to help spur creativity and aid in problem solving. The ARKe is moving us towards this goal, enabling students and professionals to test out ideas today that could become tomorrow’s new medical device, auto advancement or gallery piece.”
For those who want to immediately experience the Mcor ARKe, printing demos will be taking place at the TCT Show in Birmingham, UK September 28 and 29, 2016 at booth D14. Mcor joins a long list of industry experts at the event which aims to further accelerate the impact of 3D printing in both institutional and corporate environments.
