Prototyping circuit boards has historically been a long and expensive process, requiring external manufacturers to print circuit boards on a client’s behalf. Now, Dr. Jeff Casey from Rockfield Research Inc. shows what he has accomplished using Graphene 3D Lab’s flagship conductive filament: a 3D printed three layer circuit board.
Jeff Casey was able to 3D print the circuit board directly in his facilities, using only Conductive Graphene Filament, standard filament, a dual-head 3D printer, and a few additional components. Check out his creation by watching the video below!
Now applications like this are probably why Graphene 3D Lab had to double production capacity several months ago.
When I first wrote about Graphene 3D Lab on August 11, 2014, I explained why I thought it was “The Best 3D Printing Stock to Buy Now.”
Over a year later, shares are down slightly from their 8/11/2014 close of .70, but have outperformed other 3D printing stocks through the entire period by a wide margin.
Beyond R&D… Significant Revenue
While Graphene 3D Lab remains in R&D, see 3D Printed Battery Patent Application, revenue production will be ramping quickly do to the recent acquisition of Graphene Laboratories, (see news), which generated over $1million in revenue last year and was cash flow positive with no debt.
To put that into perspective, 3D bioprinting company Organovo (ONVO) reported $571,000 in revenue for the year ending March 31, 2015 and has a market cap of $330 million, while Graphene 3D Lab has a market cap under $30 million. Obviously the two companies operate in vastly different areas of the 3D printing space, and aren’t true “comps” as a result…but I think it does drive home the point that when Graphene 3D Lab begins reporting revenue from the acquisition, shares are likely to get some attention.
Lastly, no other company has the commercial production capacity of electrically conductive, graphene enhanced filaments that Graphene 3D Lab has- making Graphene 3D Lab a first mover in this new and exciting space in 3D printing.
Exciting times ahead!
