The advantages of stereolithography
Light curing and post-treatment
The successive stacking of layers up to 0.10 mm allows the manufacturing of parts. At each pass, the resin is insulated by a laser beam that provides the necessary wavelength to harden the material.
The stereolithographically printed part requires post-treatment. It must first be cleaned with a solvent to remove the uncured resin residue and then passed through an oven to complete the cure to maximize the strength of the material.
The low layer thickness, the liquid base material and the high fineness of the laser beam allow for very precise parts with a high level of detail.
