SLA is a 3D printing technology ideal for prototyping as well as end-use part manufacturing. We often use this technology for rapid tooling production such as master creation for vacuum casting. Stereolithography produces precise parts to rival CNC and injection-moulded components and these parts can go forward to our finishing team to be finished and painted to look and function as the finished design is intended.
We are able to offer high resolution (0.05mm layers) as well as stranded resolution (0.1mm layers) SLA parts on our range of SLA machines. Stereolithography works by focusing a UV laser onto a vat of photopolymer resin. The UV laser draws a design on the surface of the vat which solidifies and forms a single layer of the desired 3D object. This process is repeated for each layer until the 3D object is complete.
Here at Complete Fabrication we run a range of materials mimicking thermoplastic injection moulded materials such as ABS and PP. Please call our team to request materials data sheets.
Polyjet is a 3D printing process which is used for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. When speed is a priority, using Polyjet can be the solution, building in 16micron layers and jetting acrylic-based resin through hundreds of nozzles. This process will get you a model in your hand in super-fast time!
