Award-winning LCD 3D printer and materials manufacturer Photocentric has introduced a new system: the Liquid Crystal (LC) Magna.

The LC Magna is the second largest LCD 3D printer from Photocentric operating a build volume of 510mm x 280mm x 350mm. According to Sally Tipping, Sales Director at Photocentric, the large build “sets new standards, making [the LC Magna] best in class in almost every respect.”

Machine - Pre-order - June

The machine is now available to pre-order and will begin shipping in June 2019.

Tipping adds, “it really is a disruptive industry-changing machine.”

Photocentric - Paul - Holt - Manufacturer - Photocentric

Photocentric was founded by Paul Holt in 2002 as a stamp manufacturer. In 2005, Photocentric filed a patent for daylight photopolymerization process which later formed the basis of the company’s 3D printing technology.

Turning this technology into a marketable system began with a grant from the non-departmental public body Innovate UK. In contrast to the high energy UV light used in 3D printing processes, Photocentric’s daylight photopolymerization process cures resin at wavelengths larger than 405 nm. The benefits of the technology include a safer working environment, lower overall price of the machine and improved curability.

Company - LCD - Printer - Liquid - Crystal

The company released its first LCD 3D printer, the Liquid Crystal 10″, in 2016. Since then four 3D printers, including LC Magna, have been commercially released. For innovation in daylight photopolymerization, Photocentric won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2016 and, for achieving outstanding overseas sales growth in 3 years, the award returned to the company again in 2018.

In addition to 3D printers, Photocentric also has a significant range of 3D printing materials which include hard, soft and flexible UV and daylight curable resins. Broadening its portfolio the company has also partnered with BASF, whose versatile...
