Company claims parts produced with superior quality quickly.
The Kira Corp. (Kira, Japan) says that its new PLT-20 KATANA paper laminating concept modeling can produce 3D models reliably, cleanly, and quickly.
Kira claims that the models created by the PLT-20 offer a finish quality “far superior to many competitive offerings” due, in part, to the system’s cutter-plotter ability to cut models slice by slice efficiently. Users can also adjust quality and speed can be adjusted based on the specialty paper used or by choosing between single-lamination or double-lamination. The PLT-20’s newly developed software enables you to import STL files, adjust model layout, and create parting lines in five minutes, according to the company
The PLT-20 KATANA is available with a one-year warranty, starter kits, and system software for approximately $35,000. For complete details and to local distrubtors, go to the Kira Corp. website.
