Why choose HPS?
LPE are the first company in the UK & Ireland to offer HPS (Hybrid Photosynthesis). This novel technology combines elements of both SLA & DLP, to deliver a unique range of benefits that eliminate the trade-offs between the 2 processes. HPS offers the size and surface quality of SLA parts, but with the strength of SLS and the resolution/functional properties of DLP.
Utilising both laser and light-based technologies, HPS achieves near isotropic mechanical properties in all 3 directions. This, combined with its ability to run high viscosity materials, means it opens the door for rapid printing of sizeable parts with injection moulding quality.
This makes the process ideal for fast, low volume production runs, functional prototypes, and tooling aids.

- Material range – HPS can run a wide variety of tough, functional, production-grade materials. LPE will be adding to the HPS material offering throughout 2024.
- Resolution and surface quality – Parts have exceptional surface smoothness and feature resolution, removing the need for manual finishing of unsupported surfaces.
- Build Size – With a much larger build frame, the HPS machine can produce parts up to 2.5x bigger than DLP.
