3D printer developer Korean startup Carima Co., Ltd is transforming printing market with its Multi-Cell C-CAT technology (Carima-Continuous Additive 3D Printing Technology), which is helpful for various industry needs. The C-CAT technology prints up to 400 times faster than most existing DLP (Digital Light Processing) 3D printers.
Upgrading 3D printing for various industries
Carima, which is known for their DLP 3D printer has been providing unique printing and scanning solutions for various fields like dental, jewelry, industrial and ceramic. The latest C-CAT technology combined with the DLP 3D printer got official government approval in 2017. Since then the company has sold and exported several units. The company has exported about 950 units to firms in Japan and the USA and has a deal of over $ 8 million spread over three years. It has sold 500 units in Korea and is expecting another Korean deal in 2020.
Most 3D printers lose precision on faster speed, but the new technology by Carima manages both fast speed and accuracy. The advantage of the Multi-Cell C-CAT technology is that size doesn’t matter for getting precise results. The technology’s open material system adapts to use all photopolymer resin. The competitive retail price of the printer allows the user to get ownership of the machine rather than any rental deal. The operating system of C-CAT is more convenient and requires less equipment.
Looking to market to new avenues
Carima’s range of printers is a massive success in the dental implant industry and jewelry modeling. The startup envisions the application of C-CAT printers will also be of huge benefit for the shoe-sole technology and the car bumper-making industries.
Carima, which was founded in 2000, has a strong team with the experience of years. The company has won many accolades for its printing technology and have presented their products across the world at important tech events. The company has the credit of developing the first DLP printer in Korea with an investment capital of $18 million. Carima has been rated 7th in the world for industrial 3D printing market share.
Carima is attending the ‘Guro Innovation Summit’ 2019 to pitch its product for exploring investment and funding opportunities. The Summit is to be organized by the Guro district office and Seoul Venture Incubator (SVI) in partnership with beSUCCESS on July 18th, 2019 at the G-Valley Convention.
