Prodways has partnered Austrian company W2P to launch a compact 3D printer, the Promaker LD-3, a moving DLP 3D printer, to help professionals in the dental, jewellery, education and prototyping industries by integrating 3D printing in their production processes.
According to Prodways, the professional 3D printer Promaker LD-3 features the performance of DLP technologies in a more compact, multi-functional format at an affordable price. It meets the needs of professionals in their transition towards a digital work stream. With its compact design, the printer fits in practically all environments.
Initially, ProMaker LD-3 will be exclusively available with a full dental package, from specific dental materials to the company’s expert support and training, scheduled for Q3 2018. This package will be available on a hire-purchase basis with a total cost ownership below €1,990 (on Prodways's conditions).
The dental package includes the following:
• Resins for dental models intended for repair work like crowns, bridges, etc.
• Resins for dental models used in thermoforming like dental aligners, retainers, etc.
• Burnout resins for stellite casting or fixed crowns (metal or ceramic).
• CE certified resins for implant guides
Another package for the jewellery sector will follow by year end, which will then be extended to education and prototyping industries in 2019.
