The SLA printing is a technology based on the photopolymerization of a resin placed in a vat, on which a laser emits a UV radiation to which the resin is sensitive, and traces high precision shapes layer by layer.
It is used for all these projects that need high precision. Thanks to the stereolithography, it is possible to produce complex models in a high level of transparency. These characteristics make it suitable for the production of parts for the automotive, medical and consumer electronic sectors: particularly for lenses and car lighting, packaging, silicon mold models, wind tunnel tests and quickcast patterns. The parts made with resin through stereolithography have an optimal dimensional stability in the long term and functional properties that makes it one of the most requested prototyping processes.
The parts made thanks to stereolithography lend themselves really well to superficial finishes such as sanding and painting and they are suitable supports for the application of metal inserts and screw threading.
