Bondic has created a new liquid plastic welding tool that basically offers a pocket-sized instant 3D printer which is powered by batteries. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the BondicEVO Liquid Plastic Welder.
Marketed as the world’s first liquid plastic welding tool the BondicEVO Liquid Plastic Welder has taken to Kickstarter this week to raise the C$45,000 the team require to go into production.
With still 41 days remaining on the campaign and thanks to over 879 backers the team have already raised over C$35,000. The developers of BondicEVO explain more about its inspiration and technology.
Our Bondic journey started with Dr. Tom, a dentist in Germany. One day a patient asked if he could take some of the dental bonding material home and borrow a spare UV light to try something he was working on. When the patient came back and asked for a few gallons of the material Dr. Tom was stunned. “I mean that’s 10 dentists, 10 lifetimes worth of material; what on earth can he need so much of it for and if he needs it I wonder how many other people in the world can use something like this!” And that is the true origin of Bondic.
Turns out this person used it under a microscope to attach wires to a microchip. So that journey turned into a 3 year endeavor to create Bondic®, the world’s first liquid plastic welder that works on almost anything- although it’s not very good on teeth now just to let you know!
Bondic is a convenient, yet powerful tool that uses a unique liquid formula which, when exposed to a special UV light, is transformed into hard plastic in just 4 seconds. Bondic was unveiled at the 2014 National Hardware Show in the USA. Here, we were very proud to take home the Retailers Choice Award for Most Innovative New Product and featured in the July Edition of the Hardware Retailing Magazine.
