Lodestar3D, a leading provider of additive manufacturing solutions based in Bengaluru, India, has become an authorised reselling partner of Nexa3D, a manufacturer of ultrafast industrial resin 3D printers. Lodestar3D will now offer Nexa3D solutions in India and will be in charge of selling and supporting Nexa3D printers throughout India.
Lodestar3D has been providing industrial 3D printers and services to technology consumers for over a decade. In India, it has a diverse portfolio of industrial 3D printers and expertise in a variety of 3D printing technologies ranging from polymers to metals. By offering Nexa3D solutions in India, Lodestar3D is expanding its portfolio even further.
Nexa3D’s Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing technology
The Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology developed by Nexa3D is a patented variant of the mSLA resin 3D printer. Light uniformity is ensured in this process by a combination of UV light array and LSPc Optical lens layer, which is critical for optimal use of our LCPc High Contrast Mask. The LSPc HC Mask is responsible for projecting 3D image slices onto the vat where the photopolymerization process is being carried out layer by layer. As with DLP printers, this combination ensures high edge-to-edge performance with no distortion.
The LSPc membrane, which is proprietary, creates a no-stick zone between the printed part and the vat. This is critical for ensuring the printing process’s speed, which is why Nexa3D’s Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing technology is known for its class-leading speeds.
Nexa3D printers can achieve speeds of up to 16 litres per hour, which is comparable to injection moulding speeds.
The collaboration of Nexa3D with chemical companies such as Henkel, BASF, Covestro, and Evonik ensures a wide range of functional resins for end-use applications.
Lodestar3D provides the entire 3D printing ecosystem, including materials, software, and consumables, in addition to 3D printers. It will be interesting to see how customers react to the arrival of Nexa3D solutions in India.
