3D PRINTING IN ACADEMIC & RESEARCH

Additive manufacturing applications in the research industry are growing in number and adapting to the specific nature and constraints of a rapidly expanding sector.

Advancements in additive manufacturing materials and technology open new opportunities and limitless potential for universities and research centers.

Prodways has developed a wide range of solutions specifically dedicated to universities and research centers.

Prodways is opening up new opportunities for innovation and production by offering the most advanced additive manufacturing solutions and technologies on the market.

Based on 3D printing technologies that revolutionize existing technology combined with a highly-skilled R&D team, Prodways provides you with a unique solution to further your research:

POLYMERIZATION DLP® – MOVINGLight® 

The MOVINGLight® DLP®, a revolutionary technology patented by Prodways, is a photopolymerization process for producing prototypes or functional parts with very high resolution and at very high speeds, by polymerizing the photosensitive resins with moving DLP® (Digital Light Processing) UV rays.

LASER SINTERING

Our range of ProMaker P Series printers bring state-of-the-art industrial production capabilities for resistant thermoplastic functional prototypes and rapid manufacturing. Prodways technology delivers amazing productivity while reducing operating costs, with the highest levels of accuracy and precision for all your parts, and the best thermal stability for optimized mechanical properties.

At the heart of Prodways’ expertise is the creation of premium, composite, sintering powder and hybrid additive manufacturing printing materials. Our materials boast high-performance mechanical properties (resistance and elasticity), physical and aesthetic properties and provide unrivalled stability over time.
Thanks to our industrial and R&D partners and internal material development team, Prod ways offers a range of materials and is constantly developing high-performance premium materials for new and promising applications.

Prodway’s MOVINGLight technology® uses DLP® operating with a wavelength of 365 nm and using very high power LEDs. This combination allows the use of resins with superior properties compared with competitor. Prodways has a full range of polymerizable resins to meet all your requirements – even the most demanding.

Thanks to its unique capacity to process heavily loaded high-viscosity (pasty consistency) materials, Prodways has unlimited potential for the development of new viscous resins.

Prodways plastic powders for laser sintering have been developed to offer the best printer-material combination in order to meet the most demanding industrial needs with a large range of resistant thermoplastics for your prototypes and functional parts.
