06 Nov Photocentric announce exciting partnership with BASF
We are thrilled to announce our exciting partnership with BASF, one of the largest chemical producers in the world and one of the world leaders in polyurethane manufacturing which has recently made substantial investments in various areas of 3D printing.
This partnership has been formed to create the photopolymers and printers necessary to enable the custom mass manufacture of parts. We have combined to work together with BASF to provide solutions for specific applications to enable custom mass manufacture of functional parts in scale and at acceptable prices. BASF will provide functional resins that are needed for specific industrial uses and we will manufacture the large format industrial printers; our Maximus with a 700 x 893 x 510mm build volume generated from a 40” HDTV and the Accumulo capable of making 16 high resolution images from mobile phone screens laid out in a single build platform. They are all solutions designed to make lots of small custom parts simultaneously creating industrial volumes of custom items.
The aim of the two companies is to offer solutions to industry that enable processes to be made by Additive Manufacturing that are currently made with tooling.
You can visit both us Photocentric and BASF at Formnext 2018; Photocentric on Stand A10 and BASF on Stand F20 to see the parts using these materials made on large format industrial 3D printers!
