3D Printing

The industrial revolutionaries

Photocentric are leading the way in helping businesses evolve via 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing.

We have been successful in bridging the gap between prototyping and injection molding for clients from all industries, using LCD screen technology for 3D printing- the concept we invented.

Whether trialling new products, looking to begin rapid production whilst waiting on tooling, producing on a lower volume, looking for a speedy go to market response, or delivering bespoke products, Photocentric has been able to assist with the production needs of our clients.

If you are looking for a printer to support your production or specialist 3D printing assistance, we can help.

To support our award-winning 3D printers, our in-house chemists have developed a range of 3D printing materials to suit the needs of various industries. Our resins are also compatible with other common printer manufacturers.

When to choose 3D printing?

3D printing is increasing rapidly in industry, early adopters have gone from strength to strength and have seen the benefits first-hand of how additive manufacturing can assist their production lines.

Where 3D printing was once seen as suitable merely for prototyping and one-off products, it is now essential to production.

Widely used as an investment casting approach, it has huge benefits in reducing the costs of traditional methods of tooling for injection molding.

As the 3D printing technology continues to evolve, additive manufacturing promises to revolutionize all industries and shape the way we work, play live and travel for the future.

Researchers are already forecasting that the 3D printing market is likely to reach over $40 billion by 2026 and could account for $6 billion of the healthcare industry by 2028.

Why use 3D printing over Injection Molding?

Budget

Initial tooling for injection molding can be expensive, avoid the initial outlay associated with traditional manufacturing techniques by choosing our 3D printing service or 3D printers.

Customisation

The inherent issue with injection molding is the initial costing of molds and tool set up, this is a real issue when aiming to personalize parts, or custom produce products. With additive manufacturing this is not an issue, as there is no additional set up fees for bespoke objects.

Simplicity

With 3D printing there really are minimal design restrictions, complexity is not an issue, if you can imagine it, we can print it. Anything is possible.

Flexibility

The 3D printing process offered by Photocentric enables customers to make as many alterations as required or changes to prints throughout the production, without being tied to additional charges for amends or retooling.

Speed

At Photocentric, we pride ourselves on our quick turnaround times, combined with the ease of the 3D printing process, you really can go from concept to market in a matter of days.

Volume

Photocentric 3D print services enable you to make low-volume personalized manufacturing accessible at any time or to support peak times when mass manufacturing is urgently required to support your traditional process.
