LC Magna v.2 printer launched by Photocentric
Almost halving print time, reducing waste, and overall increasing productivity
Photocentric, the company responsible for the creation of LCD 3D printing, has launched its Liquid Crystal Magna v.2, a completely re-engineered LCD screen-based printer designed with the intention to take additive manufacturing to ‘the next level’. The LC Magna v.2 delivers significantly faster print speeds – resulting in boosted productivity – and reduces waste. Photocentric’s new Liquid Crystal Magna v.2 is versatile and rugged, and is well suited to small-batch, on-demand, or full production applications. The printer consistently delivers accurate end-use parts, at scale, and at a very low cost per unit.
“Magna is the jewel in the crown of Photocentric, and we’re thrilled to launch this new model which builds on the solid foundations of its predecessor,” said Sally Tipping, Sales Director at Photocentric. “The product development team has maintained everything that has made the LC Magna so popular with our customers – including its impressive build volume – whilst adding a range of features that have boosted print speeds, further improved reliability, and substantially increased processing power. We are tremendously excited about the possibilities of the new Magna and can’t wait to see what our customers do with it.”
As a result of the latest refinements, the LC Magna v.2 offers substantially increased print speeds compared to the previous version of the LC Magna. For example, 36 Custom Dental Trays (80mm Z height) at 250μm layers can now be printed in 1 hour 13 minutes compared to 2 hours 22 minutes on the previous version. Its new hydrophobic platform has also been designed to further boost productivity and reduce waste.
The LC Magna v.2 is supported by a comprehensive range of high-performance 3D resins and dedicated post-processing units, as well as upgraded electronics – that include a new control system. Thus, delivering a noteworthy value proposition, that is well-suited to a wide range of applications and sectors.
