Lithrone, the laser printing company that invented the idea, is expanding into the world of the printed circuit board.
And it’s about to do so in a big way.
The company says it is working on a new printing technology that will help it print on the board itself, and it is targeting a price point of $500.
Lithrone’s current printer costs around $500, and that’s not cheap for a machine that’s supposed to print on a single sheet of printed circuitboard.
Lithone has long had plans to develop a 3D printer, but it never got off the ground, until now.
Lithron is making a significant step toward its goal of mass-producing its own printers, according to the company.
Lithrons current printer is the same size as a laptop, but the company is aiming for a $500 price point, and the new 3D printing technology will help its printer achieve that, the company says.
Lithones new printer will be manufactured using a technology that uses a laser to “bend” a metal plate, which then can be extruded to make a thin plastic board.
The printer will also use “liquid ink,” a kind of liquid that the company describes as a “high-efficiency, ultra-fine, ink-jet printable, low-temperature ink,” which means it can print in an inkjet at room temperature.
Lithoton has a $15 million Series A funding round led by Sequoia Capital, led by Andreessen Horowitz, and led by billionaire Mark Cuban.
Lithrones printer will have a print volume of 50,000 to 100,000 pieces per hour, according the company, which says it will be available in 2018.
Lithion is one of a growing number of startups that are attempting to manufacture their own 3D printers, using a laser, and they have been successful.
In 2015, the first 3D-printed printer, the Epson i3, sold for $250,000.
Earlier this year, the 3D printed printer Makerbot sold for nearly $1 million.
Lithon says it plans to print 1 million to 1.5 million pieces per minute.
Lithions latest printer, which is made of a 3d-printed circuit board, is called the “lithrone printing process.”
Lithrone says it has been working on its 3D print technology for years, and has produced prototypes and plans for the first production run.
Lithiton’s new 3d printing machine is “the first of its kind,” according to CEO Brian Ritchie.
“This is the first time that we’ve done it this way.”
Lithion will use a “faster, more robust” printing technology than current printers, and will be able to print more components per hour than current 3D technology, Ritchie says.
The Lithron 3D is already on sale, and Lithron plans to sell them for around $1,000, the price of a traditional 3D machine.
Lithony also announced that it is looking to sell printers to other businesses, including healthcare, defense, and manufacturing.
The technology Lithron uses is called “Lithron-T,” and it will use “tissue-free printing,” which is a term the company used to describe the process that uses bone and cartilage, rather than glass and plastic, to print circuit boards.
Lithoning said that it has plans to build a 3-D printing machine at a future factory.
Lithonian says it wants to develop the technology for use in its new printing plant.
“As part of our commitment to manufacturing on-site, we will be designing our own 3-dimensional printed circuit boards and then creating a product for use at our facility, and we will start to test our manufacturing process this year,” the company said in a statement.
“The next stage of our journey will be the printing of printed boards at the factory, where we will have the capacity to manufacture millions of boards per hour.”
Lithron said that the printer will cost $250 per piece, which will be about the same as a standard 3D 3D Printer.
The new 3-d printing technology, Lithron says, will be used to print “all of our products from scratch.”
Lithones printer will use its proprietary liquid ink technology.
Lithons current printer will come with a printed circuit on the outside, and a printed substrate inside.
Lithonal says that the new printer’s design will allow it to print a “stainless steel layer” that can be used for “all types of components, from solder to electronics to the next generation of automotive sensors.”
Lithons liquid ink, which the company claims is “fast, accurate, and inexpensive,” will also be used in the printer, Lithone said.
Lithoner said that its printer will not only print components on the circuit board itself.
It will also print “on the surface of the circuit,” or on the “printed circuit layer” inside the
