ZHUHAI, China, March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zhuhai CTC Electronic Co., Ltd. has got off to a very encouraging start this year with the securing of a record-size order from UK-based Greenwich Planet for 30 of its industrial 3D Riverbase500 printers, a new model that was released before Chinese New Year.

Greenwich Planet Co. Ltd, headquartered in London, is a leading provider of comprehensive creative and design services. Greenwich Planet CEO Raphe J Junea said, "We are delighted in having established a closer relationship with China's CTC. Given the growth in desktop distribution of the beta test version of the Riverbase500 over the past two and a half years, the device is considered the best product on the market."

CTC operations manager Yang Xiaoting said, while commenting on the big order for the just-released industrial 3D printing market version of the Riverbase500, "The fact that our home-grown printer has been selected by a customer well outside of our home market represents a recognition of CTC's technology and overall ability, as well as a milestone in the entry of China's advanced products into international markets."

CTC's Riverbase500 integrates the company's leading proprietary RIVERSIDE operating system, a system that delivers a printing speed of up to 21 meters per second, more than three times that of its peers. At the same time, the device also features an advanced support system, offering an excellent post-processing capacity that can meet the demand for high efficiency among industry-grade customers. Priced at 690,000 yuan in China, the device is equipped with laser galvanometer scanning stereolithography technology and uses a photosensitive resin as the consumable material. With a printing size of 50cm x 40cm x 40cm, the printer is an ideal choice for model making and proofing.

Mr. Yang also said the huge demand for the printer was unexpected. New orders accepted by the company have far surpassed its current capacity and can only be delivered in three months at the earliest.
