Stereolithography Technology

What is Stereolithography?

Stereolithography is an additive manufacturing process that uses a vat of liquid UV-curable photopolymer resin and a UV laser to build parts one layer at a time.

Benefits of stereolithography include:

·         Parts with smooth sidewall quality and detail 

·         Low volume part production of complex geometries

·         Tight tolerances, layer thickness of between 50 to 200 micron 

·         Versatile range of materials for specific applications

Stereolithography is most commonly used as a prototyping technology within industries that need to print parts or models to validate fit form and function or for concept visualization.  Stereolithography is also used in manufacturing applications for short-run part production such as vacuum castings, injection mold tooling, investment casting master patterns and functional end use part production for certain environments.

Due to its competitive build times, and the superior quality of the finish straight off the machine, very little post-processing is required, providing cost savings and reduced lead times.
