Photocentric displayed parts printed using Liquid Crystal Titan. This is the largest 3D printer Photocentric has ever used. It allows for large-scale printing, high resolution printing, and speedy print speeds.
Equipped with a 700 x 395 x 1200 mm build volume and a 91µm pixel pitch resolution, Titan also featuring an 8K 32” LCD screen.
The new machine is designed to allow large-scale production for AM applications in transport, automotive, and creative arts.
Photocentric also announced that it will deliver ceramic production parts in Alumina, Silica. The company has extensive experience in large-scale photopolymer manufacturing and LCD-based mass manufacturing of Alumina parts.
Photocentric explains that Alumina, a versatile ceramic with superior electronic, thermal, and chemical properties, is used by customers in advanced applications like aerospace, medical, automotive and chemical industries.
Photocentric announced that it is working with AM-COE (the Centre of AM Excellence) to mass produce Silica cores with better performance than injection moulding.
Typically, customers are from high-value-manufacturing industries such as aerospace, energy, automotive and oil and gas.
Photocentric also collaborated with Loctite, BASF Forward AM and BASF to create and validate high-performance engineering grade resins for industrial applications.
Photocentric showcased new parts at the show such as high elongation and rebound, and high impact absorption.
“We are thrilled to be back at Formnext bringing our latest advancements on materials, hardware and control software to scale up additive manufacturing processes through automation and enable customers to run production parts in our 66,000 sqft digital factory,” said Photocentric founder Paul Holt.
“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.”
