Tropical Tyre - Mcor Iris Parts
Manufacturer of the world's only line of paper 3D printing machines, Mcor Technologies Ltd, has announced a new flexible finishing option for its IRIS and Matrix printers.
Mcor FLEX provides users with the ability to produce pliable 3D prints models that are both water resistant and true to Mcor’s ethos of providing 3D printing technology that is low cost, accessible and durable.
The announcement was made this morning (June 11th) at international additive manufacturing event RAPID at the Cobo Center, Detroit Michigan. Yesterday, Mcor Technologies announced that its flagship Mcor IRIS paper true-colour 3D printer is the first 3D printer to abide by a global colour accuracy standard.
The official word from Mcor Technologies
Mcor 3D printers produce physical, 3D objects from ordinary A4 paper. When sheets of paper are cut and bonded together, the resulting model is tough and durable enough to be tapped, threaded and hinged. Models are safe and eco-friendly and can be disposed of in the recycling bin for cradle-to-grave sustainability.
Because the paper is 70 per cent porous, it acts like a scaffold for the infiltrant, enabling it to take on the properties of that infiltrant material. Flexible 3D printed model properties are achieved with Mcor FLEX by quickly and easily treating 3D printed models produced on Mcor IRIS and Matrix 3D printers with Mcor’s specially formulated water-based PVA coating.
“At Mcor, we continue to innovate in order to provide a wider audience with more options for accessible, safe, professional-class 3D printing technology,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd. “Mcor FLEX is ideally suited for use in a variety of 3D printing applications where flexible material properties are important, including packaging, product design, education, fine arts and digital arts, among others.”
Mcor FLEX is immediately available through Mcor’s network of Authorised Dealers.
