    UBS analyst starts coverage on 3-D Printers

    (though not mentioned in this article CAMT is looking very fine, indeed.)
    Why 3D Printing Is Here to Stay
    BY Chris Ciaccia| 04/01/14 - 09:29 AM EDT
    NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The hype surrounding 3-D printing is enormous, given the implications for the manufacturing, retail, and technology industries... not only could we begin to see increased interest in the market, but a validation, as well.

    UBS analyst Steve Milunovich has initiated coverage on the sector...
    Milunovich believes that 3D printing truly has disruptive potential, as it changes facets of the manufacturing business, from aerospace companies using it for airplane parts, to consumers making toys and clothes. When combined with cloud services for additional measures, "3D printing is part of an 'unscaling' trend shifting power from mass to customized production."...

    The 3D printing market is still in its early stages, with Milunovich noting it's growing "at least" 20% to 25% annually, as it moves beyond the initial hobbyist and early adopter stages, into a much greater market segment. Terry Wohlers, an industry consultant for the 3D printing market, notes the market could reach $4 billion in 2015, up from $2.2 billion last year, and potentially reach $8 billion in revenue in 2019.

      That's nice but The Green Jet is not a 3D printer. Sorry ...

      It is on an island of it's own and has nothing to do with the sector.

      • What they call it makes no difference..The only thing that matters is if the customer buys it.How thick does the conductor have to be before you can call it 3D?

      • Tom-

        No offense intended but...

        You seem not to grasp the concept that 3-D printing can be found in various application modes.
        The company itself specifically describes Greenjet as a 3-D printer for its (potential) customers and could not do so if this were untrue. Customers would bolt.

        Gary Anderson (from Seekiing Alpha) clearly says: "Camtek's $300,000 GreenJet 3D printer for the deposition of solder mask on PCBs offers manufacturers a high-performance solution with a wide range of cost effective, and technological benefits."

        Many other experts and reputable sources have claimed Greenjet is 3-D.

        This is a false claim on your part and is a waste of time.
