QUAN Turns to 3D Printing for Its Premiere iPad Case
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As 3D printing surges in popularity, Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) is exploring 3D printing technology for the manufacturing of its iPad case, seeing a lucrative connection in its product trajectory and the market potential of the exciting technology.
"We have talked about 3D printing at different levels in the past," Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz said. "Currently we are looking into 3D printing technology for the prototyping of our case and possibly also as the preferred manufacturing method. 3D printing is here to stay and this will allow us to closer evaluate the potential for this technology."
3D printing surpassed $1 billion in revenues last year and allows businesses to download designs from the Internet and transform the printouts, layer by layer, into three-dimensional physical objects. In a recent report by Business Facilities, small firms are creating custom objects and spare parts for everything from toys to artificial limbs, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing.
With projections for 3D printing reaching $3.1 billion worldwide by 2016 and $5.2 billion by 2020, Quantum is exploring all avenues for potential partners into the sector. With two creative cases on verge of launch, the time is right for Quantum to enter into a partnership with an innovative company involved in 3D printing.
Quantum believes it is well positioned for growth as the market for iPad accessories continues to expand rapidly. For more information on Quantum International's technology initiatives, please visit www.quantuminnovators.com/investors.html.
