Cimquest recently exhibited at the Atlantic Design & Manufacturing Expo (ADS), which took place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. This show delivered the latest innovations in engineering software and 3D printing and Cimquest took the opportunity to display some great new technology. From our 3D printers and scanners to inspection devices and even CAD/CAM, we were able to exhibit the full manufacturing solution. One of the biggest highlights in our booth was the new Stratasys J750 full color printer that can produce fully textured parts. We also displayed some scanning options including the Handy Scan scanner. This mobile device is portable and lets you easily move it around the part. This device can capture about a half a million points every second! With lots of display parts in the booth and a team of manufacturing experts on hand to show off all of our manufacturing solutions the show was a great success. Many thanks to those who came out and stopped by. We are already looking forward to the next show.
Total output from American manufacturing relative to gross domestic product is back to pre-recession levels, with more than half a million new jobs. Global manufacturing executives predict that by 2020, the U.S. will be the most competitive manufacturing economy in the world. Cheap labor is no longer the most important input for manufacturers. Success in the manufacturing sector can be attributed to the availability of advanced technologies/materials and strong protection of intellectual properties. The U.S. beats out China on both of these. In the manufacturing sector, the U.S. is among the most productive economies in the world in terms of dollar output per worker. A worker in the U.S. is associated with 10 to 12 times the output of a Chinese worker. The wage gap between Chinese and U.S. workers is shrinking at a much faster rate. In addition, customers have come to expect shorter delivery windows. Consumers are accustomed to delivery within one or two days, if not the same day. It’s easier for companies to meet these demands when they are manufacturing their products right here. An example of a company shifting their manufacturing to the United States is Kent International Inc., a bicycle company. They invested $4.3 [...]

Do you know what Section 179 is? It’s a tax code that was created to help businesses. If you take advantage of it before December 31st you can fully deduct the price of business equipment and software investments purchased this year (2015). That makes now the perfect time to invest in a new 3D printer or software that your business could really use. Here is a quick overview of Section 179. Section 179 is a tax code created to help businesses. By allowing businesses to deduct the full amount of the purchase price of equipment (up to certain limits), Section 179 is a fantastic incentive for businesses to purchase, finance or lease equipment this year. Section 179 is valid on most types of equipment. There is little sense in allowing a deduction on only obscure equipment, so Section 179 is aimed at general business equipment as well as off-the-shelf software. If you use it in your business, it probably qualifies. Section 179 can greatly help your bottom line. By deducting the full cost, you lower the amount you pay for equipment and/or software substantially. And these benefits can be further expanded if you choose to lease or finance your equipment & software. Section [...]
