Innovations in hardware, software and materials deliver competitive additive manufacturing advantage 

Photocentric, inventors of LCD 3D printing, will present a comprehensive array of additive manufacturing (AM) solutions at Formnext in Messe Frankfurt from 16-19 November (Hall 12.1, Stand: G09). With an enhanced Photocentric LC Magna 3D printer, Photocentric Additive software, LC Opus, and a new portfolio of materials all on show, attendees will be able to learn more about how the latest developments in AM can help to reimagine manufacturing across a broad range of applications.

“We’re excited to be able to demonstrate how our solutions can deliver speed, volume and cost savings to help manufacturers to beat their competitors,” says Sally Tipping, sales director, Photocentric. “We continue to deliver innovation to our partners thanks to our sustained investment in research and development – be that with our LCD 3D printers, software or materials – and it is a pleasure to bring these to a global audience.”

Magna is a tried and tested, high-performance 3D printer, allowing businesses to get products to market in hours, not days and months. New for 2021, the versatile Magna now features a quad processor for enhanced performance, optimised platform coating for improved printing and cleaning, and upgrades to the control system for superior reliability and accuracy. Magna allows Photocentric partners to deliver accurate end-use parts consistently, at scale and also rapidly, with new printing materials capable of increasing print speeds to 16mm per hour and beyond.

Also showcased and available for the first time is Photocentric Additive, an innovative, powerful and feature-rich additive manufacturing software package, providing limitless texturing and customer-ready finishes at speed. Created by partner and software leader CoreTechnologie, Additive delivers faster slicing, faster nesting and faster supports. All purchases of LC Magna will receive a free trial of the software, and there is also an exclusive Formnext discount offer for those looking to purchase both a Magna and a fully licenced version of Photocentric Additive.

Meanwhile the LC Opus 3D printer delivers speed and accuracy as Photocentric’s fastest printer yet, with a cure speed of 2 seconds per layer at 50µm layer thickness. It is able to deliver 22 dental arches in 45 minutes, and as it is open source, it works with all resins.

Photocentric is also keen to speak to any distributors who may wish to distribute its products, visit Hall 12.1, Stand: G09 for more details.
