, the inventor of LCD 3-D printing, has launched Liquid Crystal Magna v.2, a completely re-engineered LCD screen-based 3-D printer designed to take additive manufacturing (AM) to the next level.
The LC Magna v.2 delivers significantly faster print speeds, boosts productivity rates and reduces waste. Versatile and rugged, it is well suited to small batch, on-demand or full production applications, and consistently delivers accurate end-use parts at scale at a very low cost per unit.
Sally Tipping, Photocentric sales director, said: “Magna is the jewel in the crown of Photocentric, and we are thrilled to launch this new model which builds on the solid foundations of its predecessor.
“The product development team has maintained 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 boosted print speeds, further improved reliability and substantially increased processing power. We are tremendously excited about the possibilities of the new Magna and cannot wait to see what our customers do with it.”
Thanks to the latest enhancements, the LC Magna v.2 offers substantially increased print speeds. For example, 36 custom dental trays (80mm Z height) at 250μm layers can now be printed in 1hr 13min compared with 2hr 22min on the previous version of the LC Magna. Meanwhile, its new hydrophobic platform has been designed to further boost productivity and reduce waste.
Supported by a comprehensive range of high-performance 3-D resins and dedicated post-processing units, this new LC Magna delivers an outstanding value proposition, ideal for a wide range of applications and sectors.
Thousands of Magna printers are now in use around the world and are used in a wide variety of applications. Informed by extensive feedback from many of these customers, this new version of the Magna has undergone significant re-engineering to further improve reliability and performance. Each Magna is pre-calibrated to enable a quick on-site installation.
