Highly accurate, detailed and repeatable resin 3D printing.
Stereolithography (SLA) Technology
What is Stereolithography 3D Printing?
Stereolithography 3D printing is renowned for industry-leading part accuracy, detail and sidewall quality.
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. By using UV light to cure photosensitive polymers, produce parts built up from the vat of resin.
The platform will move down to the layer thickness chosen and the process repeated until parts are built, ready for washing, removal of supports and curing of parts.
Through the power of P3 software, an intricate interplay of light, temperature, pull forces, and pneumatics is precisely orchestrated to optimize prints, yielding exceptional outcomes. Manufacturers can now attain injection molding part quality and impeccable surface finish with unparalleled accuracy using a diverse and expanding selection of high-performance materials.

A novel alternative to traditional methods of manufacturing.
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.
With new and innovative materials now available, SLA 3D printing has evolved to cater to a much wider range of applications than ever before.
