Stereolithography for manufacturing prototypes accurate to the last detail
For prototype manufacturing, rapid manufacturing processes such as stereolithography can produce a model of your special enclosure, accurate in every detail, within 4 to 10 working days. In stereolithography, prototypes are manufactured using the layer-by-layer hardening of a liquid resin. Working with component cuts previously generated from a 3D model, a laser projects each cut onto the surface of a resin bath so that the relevant contour is hardened. Stereolithography makes it possible to manufacture, from 3D volume models, extremely precise prototypes with perfect details and very good surfaces. However, the individual parts which are manufactured require post-processing work by grinding-off the support contours and sprues.
Stereolithography offers you these advantages:
- SLA is the most precise prototype process and accurate in every detail.
Note the following characteristics:
- The individual parts which are manufactured require post-processing work by grinding-off the support contours and sprues.
- The process is more expensive than, for example, laser sintering.
You need to provide us with the following:
- In order to be able to manufacture the samples which you require, we need only the 3D data of the relevant enclosure.
