Some of the parts on display on Photocentric’s booth at Formnext have been produced in the largest Photocentric 3D printer to date, Titan; a prototype with a 700 x 395 x 1,200 mm build volume, a 8K 32” LCD screen, a fast 16 mm/h and a 91 µm pixel pitch resolution. This combination of size, high resolution, print speed and accuracy makes large scale production a reality for additive manufacturing applications in automotive, transport, creative arts and merchandising.

Paul Holt, Founder of Photocentric said: “This year, we are co-exhibiting with software partner Core Technologie; jointly, we have developed Photocentric Additive software for our Liquid Crystal 3D printers. On display there will be an array of parts with textures and finishes that we manufacture using the combined technologies.”

Ceramics Additive Manufacturing

Photocentric is delivering ceramic production parts in Alumina and Silica benefiting from extensive years of experience in photopolymer and LCD-based large-scale manufacturing to mass manufacture Alumina parts. Alumina is a great versatile ceramic showing superior electronic, chemical and thermal properties and customers use it in advanced applications such as aerospace, medical, automotive, chemical and electronic industries.

The company is working in partnership with Centre of AM Excellence, AM-COE to provide mass production of Silica cores with improved performance. Typically, customers are from high-value-manufacturing industries such as aerospace, energy, automotive and oil & gas.

Sustainable photopolymers

Dental labs have adopted Photocentric’s latest plant-based resins and processes to use more sustainable materials and less energy. The results are cost-effective production runs and affordable patient care. At Formnext, Photocentric will be displaying dental models made in several materials and optimised for various 3D printers.

Resin partners

Photocentric has partnered with Loctite and BASF Forward AM to develop and validate high-performance engineering-grade resins for industrial applications. On show there will be parts with remarkable properties such as high elongation, high rebound and high impact absorption.

Partners’ applications on display

Aerospace turbine blade ceramic cores printed by AM-COE, Automotive vents printed by 3D Next Level, aligners and mouthguards printed by S4S Dental, immobiliser casts printed by Xkelet are some of the 3D prints to be exhibited at Photocentric stand.
