Massivit 3D has become pretty of a huge hit due to the sheer dimensions of their 3D printing devices, yet the speed of their one-of-a-kind Gel Deposition Printing (GDP) innovation is in addition catching attention of the likes of Stratasys, who only invested in the man Israeli company. Now, according to the 3DPBusiness Directory, the innovation is headed for the US through a distribution deal signed with Carisma, based out of New York.
The Israeli firm’s Massivit 1800 machine has so far been utilized by a number of marketing and print specialists that have taken advantage of the process’s 1200 x 1500 x 1800 mm create envelope for large-scale signage and advertisements, yet the occasional activist campaign cannot be discounted. Carisma is no various in this regard. With a Massivit 1800 at their Brooklyn office, the innovation sees the company, that has been instrumental in large-format printing and marketing for doubledecker buses and food trucks across the US.
For Carisma, the printing device can allow the print media company to expand into the third dimension. Massivit’s proprietary GDP innovation, that works by UV curing their Dimengel material as it is extruded at rates of up to 1000 mm/s (when two printheads are engaged), can donate Carisma a platform for 3D printing advertisements and merchandising props. Moshe Gil, owner and CEO of Carisma, says of the role that the innovation can play in their business, “As always, I was looking for the upcoming big thing, for a innovation edge that can assist me bring a thing various to my customers. That can let me assist my customers in creating memorable and noticeable advertising. We were the initially to put LED screens on buses for advertising, we are one of the initially who printed to lenticular lenses and placed them on buses and now we can be the initially to have 3D on buses.” He adds, “I visited Massivit in Israel and saw their process in action and it was magic. I immediately knew, this is what I require for my customers. 3D printing is unquestionably the next and I wanted to be the initially who steps into this next. I am thrilled that Carisma can be the initially in the Western Hemisphere to contribute this innovation.”
