Paper-based 3D printer maker Mcor celebrates its 10 innovative years

Mcor Technologies Ltd, an Irish manufacturer of the photorealistic-colour, paper-based 3D printers, recently celebrated its 10 years in business with a celebratory gala at its global headquarters in Dunleer, Ireland. Richard Bruton T.D., Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, dedicated a plaque to commemorate the company’s milestone, in the presence of Minister Ged Nash T.D., Minister of State for Business and Employment.

Mcor has pioneered colour, affordability and eco-friendly 3D printing during its first decade. Mcor 3D printers use ubiquitous copy paper as the build material instead of expensive plastics or plaster. The company’s Mcor IRIS, prints any colour anytime, uniquely employing the global-standard International Colour Consortium colour map to provide the industry’s most accurate WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), photorealistic colour 3D printing.

Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies says “The phenomenal growth we have achieved over recent years is due to the expertise, hard work and dedication of our staff and network of Mcor Certified Resellers, as well as family and friends who have supported us during our first 10 years. My vision is to build Mcor’s R&D-focused business into a billion dollar Irish based company.”

Mcor earned the Best of CES 2015 Award in the 3D Printers category from GeekBeat.TV at the CES International consumer electronics show in Las Vegas and won Best-in-Show at SOLIDWORKS World 2015. The buzz has supported the company’s prodigious growth, which includes the doubling of its employee count and 77-percent growth in the company’s sales and distribution channel in the last 12 months.

Mcor 3D printers create complex, durable and stable physical 3D models from layers of paper printed with ink and bonded together. Hard as wood, the models can be tapped, threaded, hinged, and made water resistant and flexible. Users can print hollows and moving parts, and recycle used models for cradle-to-grave sustainability.

Mcor 3D printing is ideal for students, service bureaus, manufacturers, geographic information systems professionals, architects, sculpture artists, animators and medical professionals creating anatomical models to improve surgical outcomes.
