The prototype is the first palpable form of the original product concept.
Plastic 3D printing /from SLA synthetic resin
Stereolitography that is, the SLA method is a 3D-print technique where the laser hardens the layers by means of using light-activated photopolimer resin. The advantages of this technique are more spectacular in the case of small-scale series. The surface of the spare parts produced is more even, the details can be presented better and at the same time the original design can be also double-checked. Due to the wide range of prime materials it is also eligible for functional testing up to a certain extent, but generally it is used for the printing of scale models, jigs, fixing tools, casting moulds, prototypes, dental models and other kinds of small-scale series.
The maximum size that can be printed by the industrial SLA-type plastic 3D printing technique is as follows:
2080mm x 680 mm x 780 mm
Plastic 3D printing /from SLS PA raw material
Laser sintering, that is the SLS method is an additive technology, by means of which the PA powdered material – spread layer-by-layer – is formed into a single solid mass by laser energy. Among the materials offered the aluminium- and glass fibre- filled Poliamid can also be found. By this method durable and completely functional prototypes or smaller-scale series can also be created. Due to its favourable features the load-bearing capacity of the technique is almost as high as that of the products made by injection moulding , therefore it is totally suitable for testing, building in or even final usage too.
The maximum size that can be printed by the industrial SLS-type plastic 3D printing technique is as follows:
630 x 310 x 540 mm
