carimaIf there’s one word that comes to mind when South Korean printing device developer Carima is described, it’s speed. Today, they are the proud suppliers of the world’s many rapidly 3D printing device, and their not long ago created C-CAT innovation is said to be up to 400 times swifter than many existing DLP 3D printing devices. They’ve been wowing crowds at lots of international exhibitions lately, that include the new Hong Kong International Jewellry Show, that took place March 3-7. The exhibition is a huge one for the jewelry industry, showcasing additional than 2,500 companies of 41 countries, with a whopping 320,000 in attendance.

Stealing the show was Carima’s im-j 3D printing device, a DLP machine optimized for jewelry production. Whilst a release date has not been given yet, Carima anticipates it to be a significant force when it does hit the market.

“Carima anticipate to be turning point to hit the market of the world with im-j version equipped with high innovation,” said Carima CEO Lee Byung Geuk, “and we can manufacture an effort to increase export providing korean high-end innovation.”

One of the highlights of the im-j — that stands for “Imagination, Manufacturing, Jewelry” — is its longevity. Its UV LED light source can last 20,000 hours or longer preceding needing replacement – that is of 7 times longer than current DLP light sources. Whilst exact printing speeds haven’t been specified, Carima emphasizes that it is swift – no surprise there. Other specifications are as follows:

Printer dimensions: 300 x 310 x 590 mmBuild size: 96 x 54 x 150 mmResolution: 1920 x 1080Layer thickness: .025, .05, .075, 0.1Power supply: AC100-240V, 50/60Hz

imjA touch screen allows for for effortless operation, and Carima promises low maintenance costs. The im-j prints with wax resin for direct jewelry casting, and operates with Carima’s user friendly software.

The unveiling of the im-j at the Hong Kong International Jewellry Show marks Carima’s expansion into Hong Kong. The company is planning an aggressive hustle into several Asian and European countries in the near next. Right now Carima exports to over 25 countries, but they look to be dead set on growing as rapidly and as prolifically as possible. They’ve put out a call for resellers or sales agencies; if interested, you can contact them through their website.

There are a lot of 3D jewelry printing devices on the market; whether this one can distinguish itself as much as Carima projects that it can remains to be seen. The speed should be an beautiful factor; I anticipate that this printing device can be equipped with C-CAT innovation and can, therefore, be as lightning-swift as Carima’s other new releases. The long-lasting light source and low maintenance requirements are quite attractive, as well. I haven’t seen anything but positive reviews of Carima’s printing devices thus far, so I’d be surprised if the im-j disappoints. Discuss in the New Carima 3D Printer forum over at 3DPB.com.
