ABOUT US

Photocentric was formed in 2002 to develop patented photopolymer applications. We have always aimed to innovate, introducing new products to markets and disrupting existing technologies.  Along the way, we have also tried to make processes better, introduce simplicity and provide better value to customers.

We have two manufacturing sites, employing 50 people in Peterborough, UK and 25 in Phoenix, USA. We are a specialist in photopolymer, reacting our own oligomers and blending them in in-house vessels. Our traditional market has been supplying photopolymer for the printing and craft markets, including in our patented, easy to use imagepac sachets. We also design and produce the machines to use our products in.

We started looking at Additive Manufacturing in 2013 when we were awarded a UK Govt. Innovate grant to develop a new type of 3D printer.  The concept was simple; use an unmodified LCD screen emitting pure daylight, without any UV, as the imaging source and make it functional with highly active photopolymer. This concept has become a reality and is the basis of the Liquid Crystal 3D printer we manufacture today- it’s elegant, simple and powerful.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

At Photocentric, one of our core values, is that we believe that there is always a better way. We celebrate innovation and devote a substantial amount of our revenues to Research and Development. Today we employ 6 scientists in our laboratory in the UK. We hold a number of patents of which US 8,114,569 was the precursor to our recent 3D patents.  We have filed three patents on the process of making 3D objects with daylight active polymer; GB1508178.9, GB1513771.4 and GB1517025.1. We have a number more in the process of submission.
