Prodways is opening up new opportunities for innovation and production by offering the most efficient additive manufacturing solutions and technologies for the consumer goods industry.

Based on 3D printing technologies that revolutionize existing technology, combined with a highly-skilled R&D team, Prodways provides you with a unique solution for industrial production, enabling you to be the most competitive in your market:

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 photosensitive resins with moving DLP (Digital Light Processing) UV rays.

PLASTIC LASER SINTERING

Our range of ProMaker P Series printers brings 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, Prodways offers a range of materials and is constantly developing high-performance premium materials for new and promising applications for the consumer goods market.

Prodway’s MOVINGLight technology® uses DLPs 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.
