Axtra3D, founded by veteran innovators in the 3D printing industry, unveiled its Hybrid PhotoSynthesis (HPS) technology and Lumia 3D printer at Formnext, in Frankfurt, Germany, in late November.
The startup's new technology combines the following benefits:
- Reportedly surpasses the resolution of digital light processing (DLP) / liquid crystal display (LCD) while offering the print area of industrial grade stereolithography (SLA)
- Prints at the speed of DLP/LCD while at least matching the surface quality of SLA, the company notes
- Simultaneously enables continuous printing and isotropic part performance
“We truly believe HPS has the power to transform 3D printing and our experience at Formnext confirms that this technology is an industry game-changer,” states Axtra3D CEO Gianni Zitelli.
Axtra3D is a technology company specializing in developing advanced additive manufacturing solutions, involving optoelectronics. Axtra3D aims to provide solutions in various industry verticals; including healthcare, both medical and dental, and manufacturing.
Axtra3D's premiere product, the Lumia 3D Printer, featuring HPS technology, combines the speed and resolution of DLP 3D printing with the surface quality and print area of SLA—delivering a new 3D printing experience with scalable, high speed, fine-resolution 3D printing. Axtra3D was founded by 3D printing industry leaders, Gianni Zitelli and Praveen Tummala, and is headquartered in the U.S. with R&D and manufacturing in Vicenza, Italy.
