Zecotek Photonics Inc., a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Zecotek Display Systems Pte. Ltd. has contracted LT-PYRKAL of Yerevan, Armenia, to assemble and test its first compact, high-speed 3D printer which will have the ability to use an extended and varied list of alloys to "print" metal components.

Zecotek and LT-Pyrkal previously announced a partnership in February 2014. Since that time a number of key technical challenges have been solved and LT-Pyrkal will now proceed with the assembly of the new 3D printer, which will be used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing.

"Our technical team of scientists have identified a unique approach to handle high-performance metal alloys with our compact high-speed 3D print technologies." said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc.

"The advantage of our design is the compactness, speed and quick transition from prototyping to 3D manufacturing at all levels of production. Add the ability to handle high-performance metal alloys and the size of the market grows considerably. We are excited about the prospect of being a key leader in an industry that will revolutionize manufacturing."

LT-PYRKAL is a Greek-Armenian research, development and production company, specializing in crystal growth, laser accessories and components, lasers and systems. LT-PYRKAL is a long time contract partner of Zecotek which developed a number of key electro-mechanical elements for Zecotek`s patented 3D display technology.

"We look forward to continuing to build on our growing relationship with Zecotek by completing the assembly and testing of their first compact high-speed 3D printer and assist them to move to full production and sales," said Mr. Gagik Buniatyan, General Director of LT-PYRKAL.

Although 3D printing has now become cheaper and more customizable than regular manufacturing methods, Zecotek and LT-PYRKAL have identified a unique method of printing with high-performance metal alloys with its proprietary compact, high-speed 3D printing technologies. This will allow companies to evaluate their product models in less time to improve design throughout the product development process. The rapid prototyping and rapid prototyping enable higher productivity, economical customization and improved quality.
