Report: “Cool Vendors in 3D Printing 2016”
Gartner announced us to be one of the top 5 “Cool Vendors in 3D Printing 2016” in their latest report. Both our outstanding technology of two photon-polymerization as well as the possibility to print 3D objects with features at the micrometer level that are currently impossible to create with conventional manufacturing techniques, convinced the experts.
Gartner writes: “The company’s printer is able to drive innovative designs across dimensions ranging from a few microns up to the millimeter scale. Its integrated approach includes sophisticated user-friendly software, as well as intuitive and straightforward process solutions tailored to specific applications in the fields of 3D printing and maskless lithography.”
The report draws attention to five innovative additive manufacturing companies which could be paving the way for the future of 3D printing. Gartner itself is one of the world’s leading information technology research and advisory companies.
On Youtube you can find this video showing a realtime recording of a 3D µ-printing process. It starts with the CAD model of a spaceship and uses a Photonic Professional GT system to print a polymer model on the microscale in less than 50 seconds!
