BURLINGTON, Mass., USA - Z Corporation executives will highlight state-of-the-art advances in 3D scanning and full-color 3D printing this week at TCT Live 2009, a premier event for product development and manufacturing technology. Their seminars and demonstrations will illustrate the business value of the latest technology for product development and manufacturing. The conference and expo take place October 20-21, 2009 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, UK.

Z Corporation makes the world's fastest 3D printers and the only ones that simultaneously print in multiple colors. Its 3D scanners are the first-handheld, self-positioning laser scanners on the market. They digitize 3D surfaces in real time, quickly and accurately capturing data for CAD modeling, reverse engineering, 3D printing, inspection and more.

In booth H2, Z Corporation will discuss its newest 3D printer, the ZPrinter® 350, unveiled Oct. 15. The ZPrinter 350 is the first automated, monochrome 3D printer and Z Corporation's most affordable automated 3D printer to date. It makes advanced rapid prototyping technology more accessible to mainstream engineers, designers, architects and educators. Company representatives will also discuss the benefits of the new ZScanner® 600, the world's most affordable portable 3D laser scanner.

Z Corporation will demonstrate…

  • The ZPrinter 650, a top-of-the-line, high-performance 3D printer for demanding application environments. The ZPrinter 650 delivers the industry's biggest models, highest-quality color and finest resolution;
  • The ZScanner® 700 CX, the world's first handheld laser scanner that can capture surface information in full 24-bit color, rendering the complete picture of an object, not just the geometry;
