Photocentric announced the launch of its Liquid Crystal (LC) Magna v2 3D printing platform, which is said to offer faster printing speeds and reduced waste.
The Magna printer has recently been exploited by people like Phone, badge master and Ousmih to produce parts for smartphone camera adapters, name badges and dental aligner models, while Photocentric has also deployed a farm of machines to produce face shields during the pandemic.
Building on these successes, Photocentric sought to redesign the machine to “take additive manufacturing to the next level”. With the latest refinements, the LC Magna v2 offers increased print speeds with 36 custom dental splints (80mm Z-height) at 250μm layers that can now be printed in 1 hour 13 minutes compared to 2 hours 22 minutes on the previous version of LC Magna. A new hydrophobic platform, meanwhile, has been designed to further increase productivity and reduce waste, and a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance resins and dedicated post-processing units make the machine suitable for a range of applications. apps. Each machine is also pre-calibrated to facilitate quick installation on site.
“Magna is the crown jewel of Photocentric, and we are thrilled to launch this new model which builds on the strong foundation of its predecessor,” commented Sally Tipping, Sales Director at Photocentric. “The product development team has retained everything that has made the LC Magna so popular with our customers – including its impressive build volume – while adding a range of features that have accelerated print speeds even further. improved reliability and significantly increased processing power.We are extremely excited about the possibilities of the new Magna and can’t wait to see what our customers will do with it.
