Prodways is to launch a new compact 3D printer, the ProMaker LD-3, which is aimed at the dental, jewelry, education or prototyping industries.
The key thing is the size, with the LD-3 being a tabletop device, measuring just 400 x 400 x 545 mm, which makes it one of the smallest DLP 3D printers around. It has a build area of 64 x 120 x 130 mm, with a layer thickness of 25 – 200 µm.
Essentially, Prodways is planning to use this new machine to target new users, and is putting together dedicated packages around this printer.
It will initially be available in the third quarter of this year as a part of a complete dental package that also includes specific dental materials as well as expert support and training, and which will be sold as a monthly subscription at a total cost of ownership below €1,990.
Amongst the materials will be some resins for dental models intended for repair work, such as crowns and bridges,, as well as those for dental models used in thermoforming, such as dental aligners and retainers. There are also burnout resins for stellite casting or fixed crowns, both metal and ceramic, as well as CE certified resins for implant guides.
Later this year Prodways will offer a jewellery package for the LD-3, and next year there will other packages for the education and prototyping industries.
