For several years rapid tools made using stereolithography (SL) technology have been tried for injection molding thermoplastic parts. Success has been very limited due to low strength, inadequate temperature resistance, and poor dimensional stability of SL resins. A new class of stereolithography...

This computer-generated animation demonstrates the actions of the SLA machine. The laser can be seen tracing each layer of the part, as the part is lowered into the resin. The completed part is then raised out of the resin tank, ready to be used....

Vesta Inc., a manufacturer of custom silicone medical devices based in Franklin, WI, has developed a prototyping process that can reduce prototype times by as much as 70% as compared with traditional methods. The Quick Response process is based on the company's ability to mold medical-grade liquid...

In the thirty years since stereolithography (SLA) arrived on the scene, 3D printing. capabilities have evolved from simple model and mold production to product manufacturing. Deciding whether, and how, to leverage and integrate 3d printing - also called additive manufacturing (AM) - with existing...

Stereolithography molds can be built quickly and with less expense than molds made by traditional methods. The process is similar to building stereolithography parts, but the mold is reinforced to withstand injection molding conditions for 50 or more cycles. Although they may not be as attractive...

...and discusses potential applications. The automated EFAB process creates metal structures by electroplating multiple, independently patterned layers. The process is similar in concept to rapid prototyping techniques, such as stereolithography, in that multiple patterned layers are stacked to build...

...processes involved are relatively slow. In fact, it can take hours or even days to build a part. The term arose because laser sintering, stereolithography, fused-deposition modeling, and other technologies build parts (thus rapidly), layer by layer from CAD...

Tooling-Free Process Benefits Production of Device Subassemblies On the face of it, the Rapid Micro Product Development (RMPD) process created by MicroTEC GmbH (Duisburg, Germany) sounds strikingly similar to stereolithography. It is described as a tooling-free generative production technology...

A stereolithography resin called ProtoCast AF19120 generated significantly less burnout ash when used to make casting patterns for key aerospace parts. The castings that resulted also had fewer flaws that needed weld repair, saving in Worcester, Mass., about $6.75 per casting in labor...
