-- Low-cost, full-colour paper-based 3D printing enables Digicopy to offer new products and services to a broader customer base and become a market leader
DUNLEER, Ireland, Dec. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper-based 3D printers, announced today that established Italian reprographics firm, Digicopy, has greatly expanded its business with Mcor's SDL (Selective Deposition Lamination) 3D printing technology, offering new products and services and attracting a broader customer base.
Innovation is critical in any business in order to gain and maintain a competitive advantage. But the ability to offer unique products and services that generate new sources of revenue is especially important in today's reprographics industry. That's why, after 20 years of offering 2D printing and binding products and services, Digicopy, decided to expand into the fast-growth 3D printing industry.
"We strongly believe in innovation," said Eugenio Costa, Marketing and Development at Digicopy. "We believe 3D printing will enable us to offer entirely new products and services to an expanded customer base and establish ourselves as a market leader."
Digicopy turned to Mcor Technologies, maker of the world's only desktop paper-based 3D printers. "We selected Mcor 3D printers because of their professional quality, superior full-colour capabilities and eco- and office-friendliness compared to other 3D printers," said Costa.
Digicopy became an Mcor Technologies Certified Reseller and not only sells Mcor 3D printers, they also offer full-service 3D printing and scanning services and even enable their customers to 3D print objects themselves right in the store. "We mainly 3D print models developed by university students for their thesis work – 1,000 students 3D printing a variety of models last month alone - as well as prototypes for designers and stylists, including some famous fashion firms," said Costa.
Digicopy is expanding. They are now an established group under the name Ethesis srl, running four shops located near each of three Universities in Milan, Cattolica, Bicocca, Statale, and a production centre, close to Bicocca University, in Viale Sarca 173.
Said Costa, "All of our customers really appreciate the affordable price and full, realistic colour of Mcor's cutting-edge 3D printing technology. It's really helped our business."
