How Girbau Group Increased Efficiency with Additive Manufacturing
When traditional manufacturing is on the sidelines because it cannot provide the desired outcome, Additive Manufacturing (AM) is often a real game-changer to achieve companies’ visions.
With the unique freedom of design and the right materials, tailor-fit solutions are well within reach – let’s take a look at how Spanish company Girbau Group leveraged 3D printing with Forward AM’s photopolymer Ultracur3D® EPD 1006 powered by Photocentric.
Photocentric & BASF renew LCD 3D printing materials partnership
Combining the talents of their respective R&D teams, Photocentric and BASF are aiming to develop materials that ‘realise the potential of Additive Manufacturing at scale’ and help to facilitate higher productivity and lower prices per printed part. Previously, BASF and Photocentric have worked together to develop Ultracur3D® Daylight photopolymer resins, designed to work in conjunction with the latter’s LCD 3D printing technology.

3D Printing for Model Railways with Ultracur3D® EPD 2006
Cirp, a 3D Printing Bureau were approached by modellbahn.blog, a specialist online model railway retailer that offers service and a wide range of spares and accessories to model railway enthusiasts. They saw an opportunity to create very small loudspeakers that would add audio or enhance the existing audio capability of the model locomotives. These loudspeakers would be designed to sit within the chassis of the locomotive models and integrate with the existing electronics.
