Photocentric is a rapidly growing manufacturing company with a uniquely different attitude to manufacturing photopolymer and 3D printing. We manufacture photopolymers from the building blocks upwards constructing our own polyurethanes from isocyanates and polyols. With a core competency in chemistry and a commitment to innovation, we are interested in developing the field of photocurable polymers across all of its applications; creating benefits to all industries.
Photocentric in 3D printing
We have a vibrant research program in chemistry and engineering. We design and manufacture our own 3D printers and aim to advance the engineering, electronics, software as well as the chemistry. We have a large open-plan and friendly working environment with a collaborative and creative view to work. We are committed to research and know that we will only be a great company by employing great people. So, if you are exceptional and want to change the world then why don’t you do it with us and build your career?
Working with us externally to further research
We welcome research opportunities where we can work collaboratively with an academic institution or a research orientated company. We are interested in pushing back the barriers of knowledge in the field. If you are involved in any aspect of SLA 3D printing research then we will have an interest and may well support it. Please contact us see what we can offer to your project.
