Prodways launches dental LD 3D printers

Prodways has used this week’s International Dental Show in Cologne to preview the next generation of its ProMaker LD series of 3D printers that are designed for the dental industry.

Prodways has announced a new LD series of Moving Light 3D printers for the dental industry.

There are three models in the range. The LD-10 and the faster LD-20 have a build platform of 300 x 445 x 200mm, while the bigger LD-45 has a platform up to 450 x 445 x 200mm. They have interchangeable production platforms to make it easier to tune production for smaller runs. They will also offer vats of various heights to reduce the amount of resin required for each application, with changes of vats and printing medium taking only a few minutes.

These printers use Prodways’ MovingLight technology but in a more compact, multi-functional format at an affordable price. They have a native resolution of 42µm per pixel and very high dimensional precision on all 3 axes, along with high productivity through its moving DLP (Digital Light Processing unit). Prodways says that it should be possible to print up to 38 dental arches per hour at an optimal unit cost using the LD-45.

Prodways has also developed a new user-friendly software interface with a built-in touch screen to control the production process.

The LD-10 will be available at the end of the year at a cost of under €100,000, with the others to follow later.
