Stratasys, the additive manufacturing quality and reliability leader, has announced a new 3D printer to their list of product offerings.
The new V650 Flex is the first ever Stratasys 3D printer featuring Stereolithography (SLA) technology.
Stereolithography is a form of 3D printing technology used for creating parts layer by layer, by projecting an ultraviolet (UV) laser onto a vat of photopolymer resin. Photopolymers are sensitive to ultraviolet light, so the resin is photochemically solidified and therefore forms a single layer of the part. Then the build platform lowers one layer at a time while a blade re-coats the top of the tank with resin. This process is repeated for each layer of the design until the 3D object is complete. Completed parts must be washed with a solvent to clean wet resin off their surfaces .
The V650 excels when it comes to single material large parts and […]
