Working together to deliver the next generation of 3D materials.
The printing problems we are addressing together
The current limitations to enabling custom mass manufacture.
Parts are not functional
Limitations in material properties have hindered the ability of 3D prints to be used as functional end-use parts.
Parts are too expensive
Printers, software, maintenance and resin costs are all much too high. Fully costed finished AM parts come out at about 150 times those of injection moulded items.
No scale or volume
DLP’s and Lasers can only make small parts and make them very slowly.
Our new scalable, cost-effective, manufacturing process for a wide variety of industrial applications.
Functional end-use parts
New chemistries jointly developed by BASF and Photocentric. Mechanical properties of printable materials which are stable against UV, humidity, aggressive chemicals and perform even under heavy mechanical duress.
Affordable end-user prices
Photocentric and BASF mutually agreed at the outset to provide value to our industrial customers. Our aim is to offer prices on bulk resin that are low enough to be nearer to injection moulding costs than current SLA prices.
Large scale printing for manufacturing
Large format screens (up to 98”) allow large part or multiple small part production at high resolution and fast speeds. LCDs unlocked the AM productivity problem.
Dental technicians, product designers, engineers and manufacturers can benefit from LC Magna’s outstanding large volume and high-resolution capabilities.
