3D Printing

The industrial revolutionaries

Photocentric are leading the way in helping businesses evolve via 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing.

We have been successful in bridging the gap between prototyping and injection moulding for clients from all industries, using LCD screen technology for 3D printing- the concept we invented.

Whether trialling new products, looking to begin rapid production whilst waiting on tooling, producing on a lower volume, looking for a speedy go to market response, or delivering bespoke products, Photocentric has been able to assist with the production needs of our clients.

If you are looking for a printer to support your production or specialist 3D printing assistance, we can help.

To support our award-winning 3D printers, our in-house chemists have developed a range of 3D printing materials to suit the needs of various industries. Our resins are also compatible with other common printer manufacturers.

When to choose 3D printing?

3D printing is increasing rapidly in industry, early adopters have gone from strength to strength and have seen the benefits first-hand of how additive manufacturing can assist their production lines.

Where 3D printing was once seen as suitable merely for prototyping and one-off products, it is now essential to production.

Widely used as an investment casting approach, it has huge benefits in reducing the costs of traditional methods of tooling for injection moulding.

As the 3D printing technology continues to evolve, additive manufacturing promises to revolutionise all industries and shape the way we work, play live and travel for the future.

Researchers are already forecasting that the 3D printing market is likely to reach over $40 billion by 2026 and could account for $6 billion of the healthcare industry by 2028.

Why use 3D printing over Injection Moulding?

Budget

Initial tooling for injection moulding can be expensive – avoid the initial outlay associated with traditional manufacturing techniques by choosing our 3D printing service or 3D printers.

Customisation

Additive Manufacturing offers a freedom of design not possible with injection moulding or subtractive manufacturing. Furthermore, with no mould fees, customisation becomes an easy option

Simplicity

3D Printing enables manufacturers to continuously adapt their range, improve product performance, reduce weight and consolidate multiple parts into one. Enabling them to decrease SKU numbers and easily enhance their offering continuously.

Flexibility

The 3D printing process offered by Photocentric enables customers to make as many alterations as required or changes to prints throughout the production, without being tied to additional charges for amends or retooling.

Speed

At Photocentric, we pride ourselves on our quick turnaround times, combined with the ease of the 3D printing process, you really can go from concept to market in a matter of days.

Volume

Photocentric 3D print services enable you to make low-volume personalised manufacturing accessible at any time or to support peak times when mass manufacturing is urgently required to support your traditional process.
