Zecotek Photonics announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Zecotek Display Systems, is designing a 3D printer. Zecotek is working with LT-Pyrkal of Yerevan, Armenia, a long time contract partner that developed a number of key elements for Zecotek’s own patented 3D display technology.
“By combining our vast experience in laser technology and high precision electro-mechanical devices, Zecotek and LT-Pyrkal are exploring novel designs for a compact and high speed 3D printer,” said A.F. Zerrouk, chairman, president, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics. “Our technical expertise has allowed our partnership to explore new and more efficient methods of printing three-dimensional objects with a large spectrum of materials. We are testing components of a compact, high-speed 3D printer to be used in rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing, as well as the associated software interface. and look forward to working with LT-Pyrkal to move this project forward.”
Zecotek and LT-Pyrkal’s new 3D printer will be used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing, with applications in dental, medical, biotech, architecture, industrial design, aerospace, military, civil engineering, and geographic information systems, the company said.
