High-performance 3D printing resins Prodways joins the Loctite 3D Printing ecosystem
The companies Henkel and Prodways announced a collaboration to bring Loctite resins to Promaker LD machines for industrial parts manufacturing.
Henkel is collaborating with a new ecosystem partner, Prodways. Based in France, the company is a manufacturer of DLP 3D printing technologies, known for their patented DLP Moving Light technology. This solution is based on the polymerization of photosensitive resins using moving DLP (Digital Light Processing) UV lights, delivering a unique combination of high resolution and fast throughput. With this new collaboration, users can access Loctite’s high-performance 3D printing resins on the Prodways’ industrial platform to further enable the production of ultra-precise parts.
The Prodways Promaker LD machines, supported by Moving Light technology, offer large production platforms (300x445 mm) for high throughput with very high resolution, as fine as 40 microns per pixel everywhere on the platform. By adding Loctite high-performance resins to the Promaker LD 3D Printers, industrial applications can be achieved with exceptional accuracy and productivity.
“I am very proud of this new collaboration that reinforces Prodways offers and help fast forward the innovations of our customers in the industrial manufacturing, automotive or consumer goods industries.” explains Alban D’Halluin, CEO at Prodways Printers. “This partnership offers a real opportunity for our customers to move beyond prototyping to volume production in additive manufacturing. The build size and precision of the Prodways machines along with Loctite industrial resins enables the production of truly functional parts for a much wider range of applications,” adds Sam Bail, Director of Partnership for 3D Printing at Henkel.
Both companies will put their solutions on display at Formnext 2022, from November 15th to 18th in Frankfurt, Germany. Prodways will be exhibiting the Promaker LD20 3D Printer and printed parts in their booth, 12.1-G61. Henkel Loctite 3D Printing will be showcasing their industrial materials solutions on booth 11.1-E26.
