Widely regarded as one of the more accurate additive technologies, SLA is commonly used amongst designers and engineers looking for fine detailed, small featured parts.
The process builds parts with a precise UV laser to cure and solidify thin layers of a photo-reactive resin. Once completed, support structures are removed and parts are hand finished to create a smooth surface finish.
GoProto’s finishing service enables us to add paint, metalising and texture to SLA parts to create highly-cosmetic show models.
CAVEATS: not for production or structural fallibility
ACCURA 25 || NATURAL (OFF WHITE): Produces prototypes that are ideally suited for design verification, clip fitment and limited functional testing. Simulates the properties and aesthetics of polypropylene and ABS. (Spec sheet)
ACCURA XTREME WHITE || WHITE: Ultra tough white plastic to replace CNC machined polypropylene and ABS parts. (Spec sheet)
ACCURA 60 || CLEAR : Clear SLA plastic for producing rigid parts for bottles, lenses and headlamps. (Spec sheet)
SOMOS 11122 || CLEAR: Is a low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant, ABS-like parts. Most importantly, parts created with Somos® WaterShed XC 11122 are nearly colorless, and look more like true, clear engineered plastic. (Spec sheet)
NEXT || WHITE: This material is ideal for the production of tough, complex parts that also exhibit excellent moisture and thermal resistance. (Spec sheet)
