Industrial 3D printing and additive manufacturing
DLP 3D print technology for DLP SLA and SLS industrial additive manufacturing.

DLP 3D print technology for DLP SLA and SLS industrial additive manufacturing.

DLP technology for additive manufacturing allows manufacturers to speed up design cycles, make quicker prototype adjustments, and print production parts.

For DLP stereolithography (SLA) printers, liquid resins are hardened by light exposure and for DLP 3D printer selective laser sintering (SLS) systems, fine powders are fused together by laser thermal energy.  

  • High resolution micromirror array enables sub 1μm resolution.
  • Extended wavelength support (355 - 2500 nm)
  • Compatible with a wide range of polymers, resins, sintering powders and other build materials

Direct imaging
Direct imaging with DLP technology.

Direct imaging with DLP technology.

DLP technology provides high speed and high resolution light patterns to expose photoresist films and other photosensitive materials without using contact masks. This reduces material cost, improves production rates, and allows for rapid pattern changes and on the fly corrections DLP direct imaging enables PCB manufacturing, flat panel display repair, laser marking, and other light exposure systems.
