Henkel has entered a collaboration with a new ecosystem partner, Prodways – a French manufacturer of DLP 3D printing technologies, known for their patented DLP MOVINGLight (MovingLight) technology. With this new collaboration, Prodways users can access Loctite’s high-performance 3D printing resins on the company’s ProMaker industrial platform to further enable the production of ultra-precise parts.
The Prodways ProMaker LD machines, supported by MovingLight technology, offer large production platforms of 300 x 445mm for high throughput with very high resolution – as fine as 40 microns per pixel on every part of the platform. By adding Loctite high-performance resins to the ProMaker LD 3D printers, industrial applications can be achieved with exceptional accuracy and productivity.
“I am very proud of this new collaboration that reinforces Prodways’ offers and helps fast forward the innovations of our customers in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, or consumer goods industries,” said Alban D’Halluin, CEO of Prodways Printers.
“This partnership offers a real opportunity for our customers to move beyond prototyping to volume production in additive manufacturing. The build size and precision of the Prodways machines along with Loctite industrial resins enables the production of truly functional parts for a much wider range of applications,” said Sam Bail, Director of Partnerships for 3D printing at Henkel.
Back in May, Henkel’s Loctite Resins were also validated on Sisma’s Everes DLP 3D printer, after Sisma enabled the compatibility of third-party resins by switching its Everes DLP 3D printers to an open platform. This additional collaboration further proves Henkel’s commitment to strengthening its additive manufacturing solution offerings by offering an open material platform to 3D printer manufacturers and continuously adding high-performance Loctite resins to its portfolio. Through its strategic partnerships with technology leaders in the world of specialized equipment, Henkel’s Loctite is driving the adoption of 3D printing beyond prototyping – towards the production of final parts.
