Resin

Stereolithography (SLA) is an additive manufacturing process which uses UV resin to produce parts. Raising the component from a reservoir, the print bed ascends vertically layer by layer drawing the part from the bath. With print layer resolutions of up to 0.025mm, high-quality surface finishes are readily achievable. At higher layer resolutions, radii and curvatures are amazingly refined similar to that of machined finished parts. With a selection of engineering plastic resins and curing options, many functional applications can be satisfied. High temperature, tough, flexible, casting and even dental grade materials are available. Depending on the intended end use, a selection of curing methods can be selected suitable for the range of applications from aesthetic to mechanically functional. All materials use 3D SLA printers which are sourced controlled proprietary resins each with tested and defined material data properties. This allows for stress analysis of the parts at the design stage ensuring that this technology can produce functional and predictable components. It is also perfectly suitable and efficient for the production of non-functional and aesthetic parts. Please see the materials table for further details and data sheets.
