Computer Aided Technology, Inc. Partners with Onulis to Bring the WRAP to the AM Community
Computer Aided Technology, Inc. (CATI), the nation’s leading provider of product development solutions, 3D printing, scanning and metrology, and Onulis, a company dedicated to solving critical gaps in the additive manufacturing workflow, have partnered to bring the WRAP (Waste Resin Axial Printing) W7500 to the North American market.
While additive manufacturing processes typically produce less waste than traditional methods, certain technologies such as PolyJet, DLP and stereolithography leave users with hazardous waste in the form of liquid resin. The W7500 printer from Onulis solidifies the unused UV resin into solid plastic stock that can be used to produce valuable components, such as jigs and fixtures, via CNC machining, and is safe for disposal.
“As we continue to seek ways to positively impact the environment through our offerings, we identified Onulis as a natural partner based on their extensive background in product development and focus on creating intuitive products that help solve existing needs in the market,” said Rich Werneth, CEO of Computer Aided Technology. “We look forward to bringing this revolutionary solution to the industry and showcasing this printer at our booth during the Additive Manufacturing Users Group Conference in Chicago.”
“The team at CATI brings a knowledgeable and experienced go-to-market vehicle that enables an accelerated adoption for this important eco-minded technology,” said Mark Swart, CEO of Onulis. “We chose CATI as partners as they align with our mission to provide technologies that solve workflow gaps and environmental challenges that exist in today’s additive manufacturing solutions.”
Lessening the impact on the environment and avoiding costs of disposing hazardous waste, the W7500 printer is sure to be a staple in additive manufacturing facilities.
