Additive Technology: DLP

Digital Light Projection

DLP technology allows for a wide variety of materials for end-use part applications.

What Is DLP Technology?

Description

DLP technology uses a layer-less ultraviolet projector to cure photopolymer resin. It offers a higher resolution than other technologies, which allows you to print parts with fine details and surface finishes.

Strengths

Fine features, with high detail, smooth, injection mold like surfaces and industrial grade materials.

Weaknesses

Support marks may be visible.

Industrial Resins

ABS Tough, RigidForm and Loctite 3840

Medical Resins

E-Guide Soft and E-Clear

Advantages of DLP

Stunning Surface Finish

We can ship beautiful quality, smooth, end-use parts in days. DLP produces exceptional parts with precision tolerances that are needed to meet your production demands.

Complex Geometries

Print geometries not possible or too costly with traditional manufacturing methods. DLP allows you to increase efficiency within your designs without increasing cost.

Quick Turnaround

Our fleet of DLP machines are ready to print your parts. We can reduce production lead times from weeks or months to just a few days.

Industrial Grade Materials

We carry standard and engineering grade resins to meet your toughest applications. This allows you to print dimensionally accurate, injection mold like parts that require fit and function.

Reduce Upfront Costs

Save time and money with small batch production runs or produce a limited quantity of parts with no minimums or upfront tooling. DLP is a great way to reduce your costs.

Precise Production Parts

DLP technology is capable of producing precise end-use parts on-demand. We currently support build volumes up to 180 x 101 x 175 mm.

Industrial Grade Parts

We offer a wide range of materials for end-use applications.
