Industrial SLA
3d Printing Service

Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA) additive manufacturing technology provides 3d prints with exceptional detail and visual quality.

Technology Overview

SLA is the oldest 3d printing technology, and operates by selectively curing a very thin layer of liquid light-sensitive plastic, whereby the 3d printer builds parts one layer at the time. By using high-definition means of projecting light onto the photopolymer, with our industrial SLA 3d printers, we are able to build parts with details as small as just a few tenths of a millimeter.

By using a DLP projector to project a full layer at a time, our industrial SLA 3d printers can cure a full layer in just one second, allowing us to build hundreds, or even thousands of parts on a single printer within just a few hours.

Maximum dimensions for SLA items

190 × 120 × 200 mm

Industrial SLA Use-cases

prototyping image

Visual Prototyping

With lead-times of just 1–2 days and surface-quality similar to injection molded parts, SLA is an ideal technology for producing visual prototypes and end-use products.

  • Short lead-times
  • Exceptional surface quality

Injection Molds

With high temperature resins we can produce 3d printed injection molds within just a few days. Perfect to produce a few hundred injection-molded items.

  • Prototype injection molded parts
  • Fast turnaround

Volume Production

With no tooling required, short lead-times and a wide range of materials and colours available, SLA is a perfect choice for short and medium production runs.

  • Volume discounts
  • No tooling costs
  • ABS-like materials

Our SLA Machinery

Our industrial SLA farm is a fully in-house designed system capable of unattended 24/7 operations. No matter how many parts are placed on a build-plate, our Industrial SLA 3d printers are capable outputting up to 100mm of build-height per hour, allowing us to print hundreds, or even thousands of objects each hour, all while providing 3d prints with a surface quality very similar to that of injection molded parts, but at a fraction of the cost.

SLA Materials

We carry a range of industrial resins for our SLA materials, from resins suitable to be used as casting patterns to high temperature resistant resins that can be used as low volume injection molding tools.

PLA material card image

PLA

Our most commonly used thermoplastics.

ABS-like material card image

ABS-like Resin

Strong and durable material perfect for all components requiring excellent finish.

PA12 material card image

PA12 Nylon

Provides exceptional strength and toughness, ideal for harsh environments.

Castable material card image

Castable Resin

Designed to allow for all forms of casting. Makes high detail one-time use moulds.

ASA material card image

ASA

Similar properties to ABS but with better UV resistance. Suitable for outdoor use.

PETG material card image

PETG

Exceptional mechanical properties and an ideal choice for larger items due to low shrinkage.

Visual-HD material card image

High-detail Resin

Engineered to capture the smallest details. Great for parts with texts and extreme features.

PLA-Woodfill material card image

PLA Wood-fill

PLA-based material mixed with wood fibers giving a look, feel and smell like real wood.

PLA-Metalfill material card image

PLA Metal-fill

PLA-based material composed of approximately 20-40% metal by weight. For aesthetic purposes.

PP material card image

PP

Due to being slightly flexible, it allows for tough use without breaking.

ABS-ESD material card image

ABS ESD-safe

ABS plastic that has received an electrically conductive additive.

ABS material card image

ABS

Our go-to material used for everything from prototypes of mechanical assemblies.

PC material card image
