The compact MOVINGLight ProMaker LD Series printers provide a high native resolution of 42 µm, allowing control of the accuracy and geometry of every part produced. For the 2021 update of the range, Prodways Group is pushing the boundaries of innovation by introducing 3D Super-Resolution in its machines, a new generation of 3D algorithms allowing a significantly improved aesthetic rendering, beyond the native resolution. The printing software has thus been perfected to obtain surfaces close to the 3D model and significantly less pixelated without compromising the productivity of Prodways, which is a reference.
Installed at customers with very high production volumes, Prodways has taken up the challenge of continuing to improve the quality of parts while reducing production times. This new version is the result of two years of R&D to provide an solution that combines machine, software intelligence and treatment processes.
Olivier Strebelle, Chief executive officer of Prodways Group explains:
“Prodways Group is constantly innovating to help its customers increase their productivity and improve their results. Our 3D Super-Resolution technology combined with a major software update provides an improved surface finish while reducing manufacturing time. This technology is complemented by centrifugal post-processing, which is much more economical and environmentally friendly than isopropanol processing. This innovative duo breathes new life into this range to better serve the most demanding sectors, requiring accuracy and speed”.
Optimized post-processing to improve rendering and reduce costs
Prodways Group is also innovating in post-processing with the marketing of a new centrifuge to clean clear aligners and obtain a perfect finished product. This device also improves the recycling rate of uncured resin.
These recent innovations consolidate the strong position of MOVINGLight technology in the dental market and more specifically in the fast-growing segment of orthodontic aligners. Initially launched in the United States, this market is also developing in Europe. Thus, the Polish company Brightalign, specialized in the manufacture of these orthodontic products, has just increased its production capacities with the simultaneous purchase of 2 MOVINGLight ProMaker LD 20 machines after having already purchased two Prodways machines of previous generations. This order confirms the growing development of this application of 3D printing for production. This is the largest of all 3D printing technologies.
