Photocentric has launched its Liquid Crystal Magna v.2, with a completely re-engineered LCD screen, designed to take its capabilities for additive manufacturing to the next level.
Following feedback from current Magna v.1 customers, this new version of the Magna has undergone significant re-engineering to further improve reliability and performance.
Photocentric says that the Magna v.2 delivers significantly faster print speeds, boosts productivity rates and reduces waste, making it more appealing for producing end-use parts at scale at a low cost per unit.
The company gives the example of 36 Custom Dental Trays (80mm Z height) at 250μm layers, which can now be printed in 1 hour 13 minutes compared with 2 hours 22 minutes on the previous version of the 3D printer. Its new hydrophobic platform has been designed to further boost productivity and reduce waste.
“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 Photocentric sales director Sally Tipping.
“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.”
The new 3D printer will continue to print using the existing range of Daylight resins that have been specifically developed for use on visible light printers such as the printer, delivering functional properties with the benefit of energy savings.
