Founders of Beckatt Solutions and Managing Partners, Matt Pray and Michael Storey will be present to showcase the technology and sample parts. Beckatt Solutions will also represent MakerBot and their line of desktop 3D printers and scanners, as well as Markforged and the Mark Two Composite 3D Printer, which uses continuous fiber reinforcement inside nylon parts to provide extremely durable and light-weight 3D prints. Prints from Mcor, MakerBot and Markforged will be on display for attendees to examine, and demonstrations of the MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer and Markforged Mark Two Composite 3D Printer will be available.
Beckatt representatives will demonstrate the 3D printing capabilities of the Mcor Iris and Mcor ARKe, the only paper-based full-color 3D printers available, and will display a variety of models printed on the Mcor 3D printers. “We are excited about exhibiting and representing the Mcor, MakerBot and Markforged brands at the Sustainability Expo,” said Matt Pray. He added, “This expo gives us the opportunity to showcase the unique full-color capabilities of the Iris and the ARKe (the only desktop full-color 3D printer available on the market), and educate those in the education sphere about the competitive advantages, in terms of costs savings and color, of the Mcor 3D printers and the resulting parts.”
The Sustainability Expo is presented by the City of Elgin Sustainability Commission and Elgin Community College. This informative expo will showcase all things green and sustainable, and teach attendees hundreds of ways to lower their fossil-fuel energy use, live more sustainably, lower their energy bills, save water and be more “Earth-friendly.” The Sustainability Expo will feature 100 exclusive vendors and presenters who will share their passion for sustainability through demonstrations, workshops and education on the subject, to the Elgin Community and 39 communities that Elgin Community College serves.
This is the second year of the Sustainability Expo, and it is being held at Elgin Community College Events Center, Building J, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin, IL 60123. Also included this year is a Family Activities & Kids Zone.
