Mcor, a hardware start-up founded by two brothers from Dunleer, Co Louth, has achieved global recognition, being honoured with a top innovation award at the world’s biggest consumer hardware event, CES in Las Vegas, which is being held from 6 to 9 of January.

Their machine : a new 3D-printing device that could soon be in every business and school around the world,  first full-color desktop 3D printer, which can 3D print any object using A4 paper.

Last night,  Conor and Fintan MacCormack’ 3D printer was named a CES 2016 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree in the 3D Printing Product category. A beautiful reward for the two brothers who founded Mcor in a garage, after leaving stable jobs to pursue their dream.

Using an integrated print head with a DPI of 4800×2400, Mcor ARKe brings high-resolution colour to the desktop, transforming desktop 3D printing from a monochromatic age to a world of full colour.

The printer also uses a new adhesive deposition technique that reduces build time and enables more complex models to be printed.

Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd explained :

“We are thrilled that our new product, Mcor ARKe, is taking home the top prize in the 3D printing category. It is an honour to be named a CES Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, and serves as a huge point of validation for all of the incredible work we’ve seen from the Mcor team throughout the development process. We believe our newest product will be an industry disrupter with its unique full-colour desktop capabilities.”

Mcor ARKe has a launch price of $5,995 (€5,500) and the company fosters ambitions to bring 3D-printing capabilities to every school classroom and business in the world :

“The launch of Mcor ARKe is a defining moment for Mcor and the 3D-printing industry, much like the iPhone was for Apple and the 747 was for Boeing”, MacCormack said, before adding they had already received “over 2,500 pre-orders for Mcor ARKe and anticipate unrivalled demand in 2016.”
