Smart Molding International 3-2022

10 newsfeed smart_molding international 3/2022 Henkel has recently announced a collaboration with a new ecosystem partner, Prodways. Based in France, Prodways is a manufacturer of DLP 3D printing technologies, known for their patented DLP MOVINGLight® (MovingLight) technology. With this new collaboration, users can access Loctite’s high-performance 3D printing resins on the Prodways’ industrial plat- form to further enable the production of ultra-precise parts. The Prodways ProMaker LD ma- chines, supported by MovingLight technology, offer large production plat- forms (300x445mm) for high through- put with very high resolution, as fine as 40 microns per pixel everywhere on 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 collabo- ration that reinforces Prodways offers and help fast forward the innovations of our customers in the industrial man- ufacturing, automotive or consumer goods industries.” explains Alban D’Halluin, CEO at Prodways Printers. “This partnership offers a real oppor- tunity for our customers to move be- yond 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,” adds Sam Bail, Direc- tor of Partnership for 3D Printing at Henkel.
