Prodways presents its next generation of 3D printers at the International Dental Show (IDS)
At the world’s biggest international dental trade fair – IDS – taking place in Cologne, Germany from 21 to 25 March, Prodways (a subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé) will present a preview of its next generation of 3D printers dedicated to the dental industry, the ProMaker LD series range, at stand L029 in Hall 4.2.
The development of this new generation of 3D printers builds on the success of Prodways’ exclusive MOVINGLight® technology, which has convinced the leading dental industry players (manufacturers of dental aligners, major laboratories and dental production centres) through its unique blend of precision and productivity on large manufacturing platforms. This new ProMaker LD series range confirms Prodways’ drive to offer the professional performance of MOVINGLight® technology in a more compact, multi-functional format at an affordable price, in order to meet the needs of dental laboratories initiating their transition to a digital stream.
This next generation of ProMaker LD series 3D printers retains the strengths of the current MOVINGLight® range, combining a native resolution of 42µm per pixel and very high dimensional precision on all 3 axes, along with high productivity through its moving DLP®, making it possible to print up to 38 dental arches per hour* at an optimal unit cost.
In order to adapt to a dental market in constant search for versatility and flexibility, this next generation of 3D printers – the ProMaker LD series – will offer a compact design, taking up less than 0.8 m² of floor space, with interchangeable production platforms of several sizes ranging from 165 x 150 mm to 450 x 445 mm*, in order to fit into all environments. This choice of platforms meets the need to adapt to different production volumes, which may vary according to applications or over time, and makes it possible to optimise production times for small or medium-size runs.
The new ProMaker LD series range will also offer vats of various heights to reduce the amount of resin required for each application, with changes of vats and printing medium taking only a few minutes. Furthermore, it will feature a new user-friendly software interface, making it quick and easy to learn how to operate, as well as a built-in touch screen to control the production process.
The next generation of ProMaker LD series 3D printers will come in 3 versions:
